Coronation Street shocked fans when Asha Alahan's (played by Tanisha Gorey) boyfriend Corey's (Brent Maximus Evans) recording of her getting undressed went not only around the school but on the internet. Since then, dad Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) has been battling with his children trying to keep them safe as they continue to lash out and rebel. So why is Dev a single dad and what happened to wife and mother Sunita (Shobna Gulati)?

What happened to Dev Alahan's wife Sunita?

Sunita first appeared in Coronation Street in 2001 when she fled Mumbai to avoid an arranged marriage.

She knew Dev so he gave her somewhere to stay until the day of the passed and her parents disowned her as a result.

Dev gave her a job at the Corner Shop and in 2003 she was planning to marry Ciaran McCarthy (Keith Duffy) but called it off when she realised he didn't actually love her.

Sunita was left devastated the following year when she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Sunita's illness brought her and Dev closer together as he took care of her.

As the pair fell madly in love with one another, Dev ended his relationship with Maya Sharma (Sasha Behar) to be with Sunita.

She was then successfully treated for the tumour and married Dev - but Maya wanted her revenge and so held the newlyweds hostage in the Corner Shop with the plan of burning them alive.

Thankfully, Dev and Sunita were rescued by Ciaran and Charlie Stubbs (Bill Ward) before it was too late.
