Actress Sair Khan will take on the role of University graduate Alya, who is set to make life difficult for dad Kal, played by Jimi Mistry, following her arrival in Weatherfield.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be joining the cast of Coronation Street," said Sair.

"I've grown up watching the show and so can't quite believe that I'll soon be walking on the famous cobbles."

Assistant producer, Ella Kelly, added: "We're delighted to introduce Sair as Alya, the new strong minded member of the Nazir family, who puts temptation in the path of one male resident, causing a storm before her feet have even hit the cobbles."

21-year-old Alya will appear on screen in June.
