Ever since Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey started her paramedic training in Coronation Street there’s been one name that’s never far from her lips – Isla.

Isla is the paramedic she’s partnered with, and Asha is totally impressed by her.

‘She is paired with this amazing paramedic who’s been there for years,’ Tanisha Gorey told us.

‘She knows what she’s doing, she’s seen it all. I think Asha’s so overwhelmed and so excited, she sort of idolises her, in a way. Asha wants to be her. Asha wants to know everything she knows, do everything she does sort of thing.’

This admiration could easily be taken for something more, but Tanisha insisted that Asha’s feelings were purely about the job.

‘It’s more that she idolises the job that she does. Asha wants to be where she is so much, it might have been mistaken as she fancies her, which she doesn’t.’

This doesn’t stop Nina (Mollie Gallagher) being insecure about whether her girlfriend has a crush on somebody else. Aadi (Adam Hussain) suggests that it might be a good idea if Nina could meet Isla and the rest of Asha’s paramedic friends to set her mind at ease.

They arrange to have lunch together at Speed Daal and Nina tells Asha she’s looking forward to getting to know Isla and her colleague Miles.

But when she arrives at the restaurant a little late she’s shocked to hear Asha telling Isla and Miles that her girlfriend is a budding fashion designer.

Of course Nina has ambitions to get into fashion design and has done designs for Underworld, but that’s not how she currently makes her living. She can’t help but wonder whether Asha is ashamed of the fact that she works in her Uncle Roy (David Neilson)’s cafe.

Does Asha think Nina isn’t good enough for her paramedic friends?
