Khan was the one who offered the idea to the ITV show producers to raise awareness about the issue. “I get a lot of people coming up to me, young Asian girls, Asian guys, that are so happy to see me on the television a representation of them,” she told BBC.

“It just goes to show how rampant racism still is,” Adam expressed in his original post.
