Corrie star Shobna Gulati was recently asked by the PA to tell fans one “surprising” thing about herself, and it seems that she thinks most fans would be surprised to know she’s nothing like her Street character, Sunita Alahan.
Shobna said, ”What would people be most surprised to know about me? That Sunita is really sweet and I’m not!
“They’re writing bitchier storylines for her now, though – so maybe that side is going to come out.”
However, as Sunita is currently having an affair with Karl Munro (John Michie) I suspect Stella Price (Michelle Collins) has a few adjectives besides “sweet” to describe Sunita!
But despite the many storylines Shobna plays out that feature men, she revealed she’s far closer to the female members of the cast…
She said, ”My best friends on Corrie [are] Kate Ford and Kym Marsh – all of the girls, really. The boys are a different kettle of fish, but girls rule!
”I’ve also been working a lot with Brooke Vincent, who plays Sophie, who’s really grown up since I first joined the show.
“I’ve got to know her very well. You do make a lot of friends on Corrie.”
And apropos of making friends – and having affairs! – rumour has it that Nick Tilsley could well be about to embark on an affair with his brother David’s wife Kylie.
David and Kylie – who are played by Jack P Shepherd and Paula Lane – are presently separated, but next week, Nick (Ben Price) tracks Kylie down, and discovers that she’s working as a lap dancer in a seedy club.
However, on the cover of the new TV Choice magazine, which you can see on the right, Kylie and Nick are shown together, with the words, “Nick and Kylie, secret affair!”
Yikes! We will of course keep you posted on that.
