Coronation Street’s Rana and Kate to get together? Disabled actress joins ITV soap and stirs up trouble
Coronation Street viewers were shocked after tonight’s episode, as it seems Rana Nazir has feelings for Kate.
Fans of the ITV soap are convinced the nurse – played by Bhavna Limbachia – is secretly gay, as she got so angry and jealous during drinks with Kate and her new love interest Imogen.
Imogen is played by disabled actress Melissa Johns, who doesn’t have a lower right arm.
She hopes her role will “break new ground” for actors with disabilities and her character is getting straight into the drama, having already kissed Kate in tonight’s episode.
Imogen, Kate and Rana all went for drinks, where Rana got angry at “being the third wheel”.
Rana claimed: “It’s all too weird.”
But Rana – who is married to Zeedan – was then seen looking devastated as she watched her pal Kate and Imogen kissing through the window.
And Corrie viewers are sure she fancies Kate.
One said: “I think Rana is developing feeling for Kate!”
Another added: “I had a feeling Kate might like Rana but not the other way round, this could be an interesting storyline.”
A third speculated: “Oooh, so Rana fancies Kate?!”
