Coronation Street spoilers follow.
Coronation Street's Dev Alahan struggles with how to help his teenage daughter Asha tonight (March 12) as she faces more heartbreak.
Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) receives some advice from Nina Lucas after Asha's self-esteem hits rock bottom again.
In Friday's hour-long episode, Asha (Tanisha Gorey) tries to keep Nina interested in their relationship by booking a surprise night away in a hotel.
Dev is concerned that things are moving too quickly, so confronts Nina (Mollie Gallagher) and accuses her of rushing things. Nina clarifies that the hotel idea is news to her.
Soon afterwards, Nina breaks the news to Asha that she's not interested in the hotel trip. As Asha reacts badly, Nina decides that the schoolgirl is too young for her and they were better off as friends.
When Nina shares this decision, Asha tries to put on a brave face and hides her heartache by spending time with her friends Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) and Summer Spellman (Harriet Bibby).
Asha suggests buying some pills and getting wasted, so Kelly makes a purchase from Simon Barlow (Alex Bain). This has horrifying consequences when Kelly takes an ecstasy tablet and collapses.
Kelly is rushed to hospital and it's not long before the adults on the Street are alerted to the troubling situation.
Dev is stunned by Asha's involvement and initially assumes that Nina must have been behind the drugs idea.
Facing Dev's wrong assumptions for the second time in a day, Nina explains that she has already ended things with Asha and had nothing to do with it.
Nina senses that Dev isn't handling the situation in the best way, so she explains that Asha is clearly upset over the break-up and he needs to take a gentler approach.
Will Asha reveal what really happened when Dev changes tactics?
Coronation Street airs tonight at 7.30pm on ITV.
