Corrie's Maria to discover Marcus and Todd affair
'Coronation Street's' Maria Connor will be shocked next week she discovers her boyfriend Marcus Dent's affair with Todd Grimshaw
'Coronation Street's' Maria Connor will discover Marcus Dent's affair with Todd Grimshaw next week.
The hairdresser, played by Samia Ghadie, is left shocked when she walks in on her boyfriend (Charlie Condou) embracing Todd (Bruno Langley).
Maria has arranged a house viewing with Marcus, but Todd - who has been pursuing the midwife since his return to Weatherfield last year - decides to turn up to at the show home to steal a moment with Marcus instead. However, things take a dramatic turn when Maria and Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) also arrive at the house.
Samia told the official 'Coronation Street' website: "Todd decides that it's a brilliant idea for him to turn up at the viewing of the house instead of Maria and seduce him in the show home. So, as Todd and Marcus are getting it on in the house, Audrey and Maria are walking up the garden path.
"Be prepared for some huge drama when Maria finds out about Marcus and Todd."
Maria has no idea about Marcus' recent affair with Todd and is convinced he is committed to her, despite previously identifying himself as gay prior to their relationship.
Samia added: "Maria hasn't a clue of what happened between Marcus and Todd. There's been no alarm bells ringing in her head ... she just thinks Todd is a friend. Marcus has put all her fears to bed about him being gay and she completely trusts him.
"Todd's on a mission to prove to himself and Marcus that he is, in fact, gay and to break them up. He doesn't care one bit that Marcus says he's happy with Maria."
