Sunita Alahan, a star of Coronation Street, may have been killed off the ITV soap in 2013, but she is still remembered for her famous role since the Alahan family is still a Cobbles’ mainstay.
Shobna Gulati, a former cast member of Coronation Street, was mortified after nearly missing her appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch on Channel 4 due to getting caught in a restroom.
The Sunita Alahan actress appeared with Steph McGovern on Thursday’s episode, but she became caught and needed to be rescued by Hayley Tamaddon, another soap opera star.
The two appeared on the daytime chat show to talk about the popular musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’s current tour.
During the presentation, Hayley couldn’t help but tell Steph the tale, saying, “Do you know she got locked in your toilet earlier today, we’ve had a lovely morning honestly.
“It was great how she got stuck in the bathroom; we’re lucky she’s here. To unlock it, I had to use a credit card.
Hayley also posted the incident’s video clip to her Instagram page.
Shobna, have you shut yourself in? The actress laughs from the locked bathroom as Hayley asks.
When her buddy expressed concern, Hayley calmed her by saying, “Wait a minute, I’m videoing this because this is an epic ending.”
Quick-thinking After doing this, Hayley tried to pry open the lock from the other side with a card, which happily succeeded.
“I completed it!” The lock ultimately turned, releasing Shobna, and Hayley exclaimed.
The question “Did you open it?” As she eventually came out of the bathroom, the actress questioned.
The video’s description read: “Our day just gets better and better.”
Later, she shared a photo of the couple along with the caption, “In true friendship manner…
“@ShobnaGulati dressed similarly to me so I don’t feel silly. We are now prepared to head to the YMCA.
While Shobna chose an all-leather gown, Hayley chose a glittery top as they sorted similar black clothes.
From 2001 to 2013, Shobna played Weatherfield favorite Sunita on Coronation Street.
The 57-year-old, who rose to popularity on the BBC sitcom Dinnerladies, has also starred in a number of other iconic TV shows.
