Coronation Street star Mollie Gallagher dubbed herself a ‘drama queen’ as she posed for a few selfies. The actress is best known for playing Nina Lucas in the ITV soap. Fans have been celebrating her return to screen.

Following her huge storyline last year, which saw her and her boyfriend Seb Franklin attacked by Corey Brent and his mates for the way she looked, the soap star hasn’t spent as much time on-screen.

But during Wednesday night’s trip to the cobbles, Nina cast a supportive and concerned eye over her girlfriend Asha Alahan, played by Tanisha Gorey comforted her best pal Amy Barlow, portrayed by Elle Mulvaney, after she revealed she was struggling in silence since being spiked.

In Wednesday night’s trip to the cobbles, Amy was seen obsessing over something on her phone while having breakfast with her mum, Tracy, in the café. She then rushed off, saying “I knew it” and we later saw the terrified teen assume Brett, a fellow student, was responsible for putting her in hospital due to his admiring glances.

This led to Amy confronting her fellow student and when he denied her accusations, she lashed out and ended up throwing a cup of coffee over him. All of this was witnessed by Max and he later found Amy and Asha in the café and confessed.

Despite the upsetting scenes, Corrie fans were pleased to see Nina. @RyanGTweetsTV tweeted: “Nina is back #Corrie,” alongside a smiling face with hearts emoji before adding: “I adore Nina’s hair.”
