Corrie star opens up about the death of her mum in emotional post

Coronation Street star Sair Khan has been seeing a hypnotherapist to deal with anxiety following the death of her mum last year. The star, known for her role as Alya Nazir and also her appearance on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! shared an emotional post on Instagram opening up about the sad loss.

Sair is currently taking part in the challenging Channel 4 show Sink of Swim for Stand Up To Cancer, in which celebrities who struggle in water attempt to swim the English Channel.

After the most recent episode aired, she shared an in depth post detailing her struggle and she added that her ‘whole body ached’.

She wrote: ‘My Mum died. It’s so hard for me to say those words without getting a lump in my throat. Let me tell you a thing or two about the lady I called Mama. She was strong and fierce and a little bit sassy.

‘You definitely wouldn’t mess with her. In primary school I desperately wanted my independence, the last thing I wanted was my mother walking me to school. I fought and argued with her and sometimes she let me set off alone and although I hardly ever looked back I always knew she was just a few steps behind me.

My Mum died. It’s so hard for me to say those words without getting a lump in my throat. Let me tell you a thing or two about the lady I called Mama. She was strong and fierce and a little bit sassy. You definitely wouldn’t mess with her. In primary school I desperately wanted my independence, the last thing I wanted was my mother walking me to school. I fought and argued with her and sometimes she let me set off alone and although I hardly ever looked back I always knew she was just a few steps behind me. The protective lioness who would never let me come to harm. Beneath her toughness there was a love so pure. I didn’t admit it but I was scared and so thankful for her watching over me, I know she still is. 💫 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. It wasn’t Cancer that took my mum but I know about countless hospital appointments, endless treatment plans and the sleepless nights consumed with worry and fear. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to raise money for Stand up to Cancer, for my friends in remission and my friends who are continuing their treatment. Please donate if you are able or help us to raise awareness. You can even do your own Sink or Swim fundraising https://www.standuptocancer.org.uk/fundraise/sink-or-swim 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.
