Corrie fans will recognise Imran’s ex-wife as she returns as new actress

Coronation Street viewers are set to enjoy a love triangle storyline on the ITV soap as Imran Habeeb’s ex-wife returns to the famous cobbles.

However, fans may notice Sabeen has a new look as the barrister will be played by a different actress this time around.

Back in 2018, the role was portrayed by Avita Jay during her brief stint on the popular soap.

This time around, actress Zora Bishop will play the character as she returns to Weatherfield in a move that leaves Imran torn between his former wife and current partner Toyah Battersby, played by Georgia Taylor.

While viewers may not have seen Zora in Corrie before, they may recognise the star from her previous acting work – including her role as Emily Warlow in the hit crime series Unforgotten.

Daniel isn’t the only Hollyoaks ‘ alumni to make up the current Coronation Street cast.

Lucy Dixon, best know for role as Tilly Evans in Channel 4 soap opera, appeared on the ITV soap earlier this month during a double bill offering which saw Curtis Delamere’s secret health condition exposed.

The 31-year-old plays Danielle, a mystery woman helping him come to terms with his harrowing personal situation.

While it looked like Curtis could be cheating on his girlfriend Emma with Danielle, it’s later revealed that she is in fact from a support group for those with terminal illnesses.

He then goes on to admit that he could “drop dead” at any moment due to the heart condition that has left doctors baffled.
