Samia, 35, was quizzed about the Coronation Street legend’s fate by today’s Loose Women panel, and despite keeping rather quiet about it all, she did say that whatever happens it’s going to be “very, very sad”.
The actress - who has starred on the ITV soap as Maria Connor for the past 17 years - explained: “We got to see a screening of these episodes. The stuff that you’ll see tomorrow is incredible, she [Barbara Knox] is just magnificent.”
An intrigued Ruth Langsford then went on to ask: “People are obviously worried that she’s going to be written out. I don’t want to spoil it, I know people record it. But, she’s very very unwell.
“You probably can’t tell us too much, but are they writing her out?” she then added.
