We will see Coronation street star Zeedan Nazir with a new love interest in the next few weeks and no, it isn’t Leanne Battersby.
We have seen Zeedan become very close with Leanne since he lost his father Kal last year and fans have been guessing as to whether him and Leanne will become the newest couple on the cobbles.
Qasim Akhtar who plays Zeedan spoke to the Inside Soap and said ”It was weird that it took his dad dying for them to become really close, but I am happy with the way he looks out for her.
“A lot of people think they are going to get together but that would be a bit much, wouldn’t it? Now that Kal’s gone, I think Zeedan feels responsible for looking after Leanne and making sure he is there for her.”
Sorry to ruin your hopes folks, but Zeedan’s new love interest is definitely not Leanne, in fact it’s Rana, Alya’s friend. When she arrives on the cobbles she makes a very good impression in front of Zeedan and he is immediately smitten with her, but we really hope that he isn’t left broken hearted.
Her arrival in Weatherfield will apparently set Zeedan’s heart ‘fluttering”. Is this set to be a new romance for Zeedan?
Coronation Street is shown on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV.
