Maria (played by Samia Longchambon) has had multiple romances over the years on Coronation Street, but has never found Mr Right as they either leave or end up dead. After countless relationship failures, the hairdresser thought she’d finally found the man of her dreams in Gary (Mikey North). However, viewers of the ITV soap know he is the latest villain to stalk the cobbles of Weatherfield and after the tragic events of Christmas Day, his girlfriend has now too become dubious about his criminal empire. As the months tick by and secrets unravel, could the expectant mother be killed as her time on the show comes to an end?
Last month, it was revealed Maria was pregnant with Gary’s baby after they both got swept up in a whirlwind romance.
The hairdresser had no doubts about her boyfriend at this point, but her ex Ali Neeson (James Burrows) stuck his nose in and tried to warn her about his loan shark company.
Following the shooting during the soap’s festive episodes which left Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill) dead and Shona Ramsey (Julia Goulding) in a coma, the expectant mother quizzed her partner about the rumours circulating about him, falling hook, line and sinker for his shady explanations.
Upcoming scenes will see the residents of Weatherfield turn on the couple, but could it come at a cost of the hairdresser’s life after actress Samia, 37, teased a grim conclusion to the relationship?
