'Coronation Street' Shobna Gulati: 'I love Sunita affair controversy'

By
Coronation Street star Shobna Gulati has insisted that she is pleased with the reaction to her ongoing affair storyline.

The actress has been flooded with messages on Twitter over the latest plot for Sunita Alahan, which has seen the barmaid cheating on partner Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) with gambling addict Karl Munro (John Michie).

Sunita is currently staying at The Rovers after being taken in by Karl's oblivious girlfriend Stella (Michelle Collins). However, Karl is stunned that she is allowing herself to be comforted by the woman they are betraying.

Writing on her Twitter page last night (June 11), Gulati said that she had received "bonkers" messages from fans over the storyline.

However, the 45-year-old soon added: "I think it's great you lot spill your feelings out re: Sunita, I love it. I've never caused so much controversy… Love my job."

Gulati continued: "And before I sleep and just to put your minds at rest, I haven't on telly or in real life boiled any bunnies…"

Next week's Coronation Street episodes see Sunita realise she has made a mistake by dumping Dev, before attempting to fix things with a hasty marriage proposal.

Gulati has previously blasted "misogynistic" comments on Twitter regarding Sunita's antics. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
