Spoiler alert! Shock pregnancy to hit Coronation Street
You know it’s getting close to Christmas when soap stories start getting even juicer than normal, and the latest shock pregnancy set to hit Coronation Street is a biggie.
Maria, a widowed mum-of-one, is to have a night of passion with her gay best friend Marcus – and fall pregnant!
The will-they-won’t-they storyline has been building up for a while, with the openly gay Marcus appearing to struggle with his feelings for Maria. A Coronation Source told the Mirror, “Deep down there are fires burning inside the two of them – and finally they end up in bed together. The shock of the year will be when Maria finds out she’s pregnant.”
Samia Ghadie, who plays Maria, said, “The fact that Maria may have developed feelings for Marcus shocked me when I first read the scripts. She should know better than that – she’s been with enough blokes and had enough failed relationships to know when to steer clear!
“He’s an openly gay man, so there’s not much future in it. There would always be something missing between them,” Samia tells Female First.
What does the future hold for this unlikely partnership? We can’t wait to find out!
