Maria Connor (played by Samia Longchambon) has had over 30 lovers during her 20-year stint on Coronation Street, but she is currently married to super-villain, Gary Windass (Mikey North). It seems she and her husband have turned against the residents of Weatherfield after being done over by the neighbours for the last time. This has led the loan shark to strike a deal with ruthless businessman Ray Crosby (Mark Frost) who has a plan to demolish the cobbles in scenes which will air during the ITV soap’s 60th anniversary week in December. However, will he regret his decision as his wife falls into bed with his fellow villain?
In recent scenes on the weeknight serial drama, Gary agreed to sell his share of the Underworld Factory to the businessman only if he was the man to drive the bulldozers to flatten the cobbles.
Upcoming episodes will see the super-villain begin to manipulate the residents of Weatherfield into selling their properties so Ray can begin his regeneration project.
This means the pair will be spending a lot more time together and with Maria also having her own agenda for getting her husband in on the deal, she will probably be sharing more scenes with her husband’s business partner.
As her other half focusses more on destroying the place where they live rather than working on their relationship, she could begin to flirt with Ray.
He’s unlikely to stop her advances and as a result, a steamy affair could begin, but if Gary were to find out, he would be gunning for revenge.

Soap star and Maria actress Samia Longchambon, 38, recently spoke about her character’s future with Gary and it’s fair to say, it doesn’t look too positive.
Speaking on ITV chat show Lorraine, the star said things “weren’t looking good for the couple” as she added: “It was going to happen.
“I don’t think Maria is ever going to find her Prince Charming and certainly not in Gary, but at the moment she’s wearing blinkers.
“She’s trying to see the best in him and she thinks she’s won the jackpot with him but it’s all going to come out
