Coronation Street star Bhavna Limbachia says her mum was ‘shocked’ to hear about her character Rana Nazir’s storyline.

Corrie fans have seen Rana fall in love with Kate Connor, but her parents and ex husband Zeedan have forced her into staying married for a year in exchange for Zeedan receiving money to open his own business.

Bhavna appeared on Tuesday’s episode of This Morning with co-star Faye Brookes to talk about Rana’s heartbreaking storyline, and was asked about her own family’s reaction to it.

She said: ‘I spoke to my mum about this. Being from an Indian background I didn’t know how she was going to react and what her opinion was about the LGBT community.

‘I sat my mum down and said, “Mum, my character’s turning gay. I’m going to have to kiss a woman on screen, how do you feel about that?” And she didn’t quite understand so I then explained to her in Gujarati, this is what’s happening and this is what people are going through.

‘She was quite shocked that it was a subject in the Asian community, even in 2018, and she said if you’re going to help people then you’ve got my full support. Because I wanted to know how she would feel if I was her daughter coming out as being gay or bi.’

There might be a future for Rana and Kate – who have been given the nickname Kana by fans – as the pair are set to confess their love for each other.

But as ever there’s a small snag in the form of Sophie Webster, who is pretty smitten with Kate, poor thing.

Asked who Kate really wants to be with, Faye simply pointed at Bhavna.

‘I think it’s the first time that Kate has really fallen hard, and fast as well,’ Faye said. ‘There’s no going back for her, I think.’

‘She absolutely [has the patience[. I can see it’s not what [Rana’s] heart wants, and the heart wants what the heart wants.’
