‘Coronation Street’ Spoilers: Marc Anwar’s Exit Draws Closer As Sharif Nazir Affair Is Exposed

The actor was sacked after posting a series of racially offensive tweets.

Marc Anwar’s ‘Coronation Street’ exit is drawing closer, and these new spoiler pictures reveal the moment his character Sharif Nazir’s affair is exposed.

His wife Yasmeen will find out about the secret long-term relationship Sharif has been having with Sonia, and what happens after will pave the way for Marc’s exit.

Sharif actually decides it's time to end the affair, but Yasmeen overhears 

Yasmeen will be understandably devastated to learn of her husband’s betrayal, and it will get even worse for him when she discovers it has been going on for seven years.

The affair reveal was supposed to trigger a series of events that would play out until Christmas, and while this is still the case, bosses are believed to have tweaked some aspects of the plot following Marc’s sacking

The actor’s contract was terminated in September, after he posted a series of racially offensive comments on Twitter and all scenes currently being screened were filmed before the incident.

At the time, an ITV spokesperson said: “We are deeply shocked by the entirely unacceptable, racially offensive comments made on Twitter by Marc Anwar.

How will the rest of the family react? 

“We have talked to Marc and, as a consequence of his comments, he will not be returning to ‘Coronation Street’ with immediate effect.”

He later apologised for the tweets and removed them from the website.

These ‘Corrie’ scenes will air form Monday 31 October. Catch up on all the latest soap news and spoilers here
