Corrie’s Shobna Gulati describes ‘terrible’ Covid battle as suffering continues

Former Coronation Street actress Shobna Gulati appeared on ITV's Lorraine this morning, discussing the release of her new book, Remember Me.

Shobna revealed she wrote the book, which details her mother's heartbreaking dementia battle, while she was suffering from coronavirus.

The 54-year-old actress, who played Sunita Alahan on the ITV soap only to leave the role in 2013, admitted she is still suffering symptoms of the virus.

When host Lorraine Kelly asked how she was doing, she said: “I'm doing a lot better, it has been a very tough time.”

Though Shobna first contracted Covid in March, she continues to suffer exhaustion, as the virus left its mark.

She said: “My whole body decided to give up.”

Adding she is “still feeling the effects of it,” Shobna revealed: “I get terribly, terribly tired.”

At the time, Shona's book offered a welcome distraction from her symptoms, as she put pen to paper to overcome the virus.

She said: “The book gave me a huge focus.”
