Coronation Street’s Ruxandra Porojnicu begs soap bosses for a steamy lesbian romance storyline for her character Alina


CORONATION Street beauty Ruxandra Porojnicu is calling for bosses to pair her character up in a shock lesbian romance with one of the show’s other female cast.

The stunning actress, who plays man eater Alina Pop on the ITV soap, reckons a steamy hook up between her character and Street regular Emma Brooker (played by Alexandra Mardell) would be ‘fun’ to play out on screen.

Chatting during an Instagram Q&A with her followers, Ruxandra teased: “Alina and Emma? Why not? They’d be a fun couple.”

The character has been involved in a number of steamy plots – inc a romp with Street regular David Platt (played by Jack P. Shepherd) – since she arrived on the Street in 2019.

The factory worker is currently embroiled in a love triangle with on-off couple Adam Barlow (played by Sam Robertson) and Sarah Platt (played by Tina O’Brien) after flirty Adam attempted to make Sarah jealous by asking Alina out on a date.

The lawyer split up with Sarah after she refused to report her ex Gary Windass to the police. 

And Sarah will grow jealous this week when she spots Adam flirting with Alina. 

But Carla Connor sees Sarah shouting at Adam on the street about moving on so quickly – and hatches a plan.

Next week’s episodes of Coronation Street will see Adam suggest Carla has the hots for him when she has another go at him for moving on with Alina.

But later, Carla tries to set Adam and Sarah up by inviting them both to lunch. 

She hints that if everything goes to plan she has a spare hotel room for them for the night.
