Maria Connor to die in Coronation Street after dating 'cursed' man!?

Maria with Ali in Coronation Street

Maria has so far failed to spot Ali's interested in her and starts to go on a run of terrible dates...

Coronation Street star Samia Longchambon has revealed how Maria Connor is set to go on a date with a man whose previous girlfriends all ended up dying! Does this mean the end of Maria?! Did he kill them all?!

In what promises to be some funny scenes ahead, Samia said that poor Maria will go on a string of horror dates with the types of bloke who’d make anyone give up on love forever!

“She starts to go on all these crazy dates with really unsuitable guys,” Samia, 36, told The Sun.

“One is a Mummy’s boy, another is cursed – all his girlfriends die – and one likes to dress up as a dog!

“It’s been loads of fun to film and we’ve had some lovely guys playing Maria’s dates.

“Bless them, I’ve felt quite sorry for them, because they’re literally in and out, because the dates don’t last very long.”

Ali Coronation Street, played by James Burrows

What about Ali? Come on Maria!!

Perhaps Maria should give dishy doc Ali a try? In the Rovers the other night, she moaned to him about her love life and failed to take his hint when he said there’s probably someone right under her nose!

Maria also got some seriously raunchy responses to her dating profile. Bethany Platt (Lucy Fallon) couldn't believe it until she checked Maria’s profile and saw that Maria had put “Netflix and chill” among her interests. Maria was horrified to learn from Bethany that “Netflix and chill" means something quite different online to what she imagined!

We’ve previously reported that Maria may well end up with Ali after going on her doomed dates.

Samia, though, isn’t sure she wants Maria to find a husband. “It would be nice if Maria found happiness. But at the same time it’s always good when things go wrong – it’s more fun to play.”
