Maria Connor (played by Samia Longchambon) hasn’t had much luck when it comes to relationships in Coronation Street. The hairdresser is engaged to Gary Windass (Mikey North) but Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien) has recently discovered he’s a murderer. As actress Samia admitted Maria is guilty of pushing her concerns aside, could the hairdresser be hiding a secret pregnancy?
In recent scenes, Sarah discovered Gary had killed Rick Neelan (Greg Wood) before the loan shark was the victim of a hit-and-run.
The mum-of-two was on the phone to the police when she stepped in front of a moving vehicle but was saved by her ex-boyfriend.
Maria was horrified when she discovered Gary had been seriously injured but was proud of her fiancé for saving Sarah’s life.
However, Tyrone Dobb’s (Alan Halsall) recall of events leading up the accident cast a shadow over Gary’s heroic efforts.

Despite wondering whether her fiancé still loves Sarah, in an interview with Express.co.uk actress Samia teased why Maria is so reluctant to question Gary.
She said: “It got a little bit awkward in the hospital when she arrived and found out what had happened with the accident and everything.
“She was concerned for Gary, and she's also glad Sarah's okay.
“But then it was just a weird moment that happened when Tyrone came in," Samia added.
