Corrie's Sair Khan ‘splits from boyfriend Simon Lennon’ after nearly two years

Coronation Street actress Sair Khan has split from actor boyfriend Simon Lennon, according to reports.

The 31-year-old actress, most known for playing Alya Nazir on the ITV soap since 2014, is claimed to be taking a break from the Our Girl star after nearly two years of dating.

According to The Sun, the split resulted from conflicting work commitments preventing them from spending time together, following Sair’s intense training for Channel 4’s Sink Or Swim.

Speaking to the publication, a source said: ‘Previously, the pair spent a lot of their spare time together.

‘Now both of them have huge work commitments and are at pivotal times in their careers. They have tried to make it work but are taking some time to give each other breathing space.’

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Sair’s reps for comment.

Sair recently opened up about the death of her mother on Instagram, explaining how she was seeing a hypnotherapist to deal with anxiety in the aftermath.

She wrote: ‘This year I have felt a loss so profound that my whole body has ached. I’ve cried enough tears to fill the English Channel. I’ve felt raw pain and I know I’m not the only one.

‘I stand in solidarity with all of you who have lost a parent, a friend, or anyone that has shaped you into the person you are today.

‘I honour them and I honour my Mama… I’ve learnt to swim but I’m still learning to heal. Grief is a suspicious thing but the last two months of swimming have been a much-needed release.

‘If you’re a non-swimmer and our show has sparked an interest then I encourage you to safely explore your curiosity because there are loved ones watching over us making sure we’re safe [sic].’
