Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street has confirmed that Asha Alahan will secretly fight for justice following Seb Franklin's tragic death.
Seb lost his life last week after he and Nina Lucas were attacked by Corey Brent and a gang of other thugs. The young couple were targeted over Nina's alternative identity.
Since the attack, Corey (Maximus Evans) has become a prime suspect in the case. Although Corey's girlfriend Asha (Tanisha Gorey) has chosen not to give him a false alibi, she has continued to defend him and protest his innocence.
Corrie bosses have now revealed that next week's episodes will see a new chapter of the storyline begin.
As Asha continues to back Corey, her twin brother Aadi (Adam Hussain) confronts her over her misguided loyalty. However, he also suspects that Asha may be hiding something.
After being pushed for the truth, Asha tells Aadi that she secretly despises Corey.
Asha admits that she now thinks Corey is guilty, but is playing the long game by pretending to be on his side.
Asha hopes that if she can keep Corey's trust, he may slip up and she'll finally get to the truth.
Could Asha be the one who ultimately brings down Corey?
Coronation Street airs these scenes on Monday, May 17 at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
