After fearing something wasn't right with her pregnancy, Maria was raced to the hospital by former boyfriend Ali Neeson, only for her worst nightmare to become a reality as she was told she had lost her baby.

Ali was by Maria's side as she was told the devastating news, bringing the pair closer together than ever before.

Ali was even there when Maria was told about having measles, and being a doctor it meant he could explain to her that the illness was very likely the reason she had a miscarriage.

But could having Ali by her side as she went through something so traumatic mean Maria is starting to see her ex in a new light?

According to the official ITV website for Coronation Street, next week will see Maria start to question Gary's actions, believing he is not to be trusted again...

"An upset Maria confides her suspicions about Gary to Ali, and they share a passionate kiss," states the website.

But does this mean Gary is old news and things are going to hot up between the former flames?

It seems Maria's timing couldn't have been worse when she gets back home and finds that Gary's shady dealings can easily be explained...
