Why is there a new Aadi in Coronation Street and what happened to the old actor?

Coronation Street’s Aadi Alahan is set to end up in a spot of bother on Wednesday night as things get out of hand at Amy Barlow (Elle Mulvaney)’s birthday party.

As sister Asha (Tanisha Gorey) is dealing with her own personal nightmare after topless pictures of her she thought she had sent privately to boyfriend Corey were circulated, Aadi falls foul of the police and of dad Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) after he hits the drink at the party a little too hard.

But fans might notice something a bit different about Aadi on Wednesday night – as the actor playing him has also changed.

Why has a new actor stepped in – and what’s happened to the original Aadi?

Why is there a new Aadi in Coronation Street?

There is a new Aadi in Coronation Street because the role has been recast – and with Adam Hussain as the actor taking over as the teenager, making his debut on the show in tonight’s episode.

Adam said at the time: ‘I am excited to play the role of Aadi, putting my own twist on him as the character becomes involved in an important new storyline.

I was already good friends with Tanisha Gorey, before coming to the street, which helps hugely with portraying the bond of brother and sister.

‘Everyone at Coronation Street has been so welcoming, bringing me in to their family and treating me as one of their own. I have always associated Coronation Street with family and togetherness which is so important at this time.

‘Having already filmed the start of this story before we had to stop production I look forward to returning as part of the amazing team who bring entertainment and joy to the screens of viewers across the nation.’

Adam’s a relative newcomer in the acting world, having previously appeared in ITV series The Bay as well as The Secret Life Of Boys.

What’s happened to the original Aadi actor?

Actor Zennon Ditchett, who took on the role of Aadi back in 2009, quit the soap at the end of last year to focus on his A’level studies.

Coronation Street continues on ITV on Wednesday night at 7.30pm.
