Gary Windass’ (Mikey North) killer secret is set to be exposed in Coronation Street, and it’s safe to say that Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon) is devastated to discover that her beau is a murderer.
Maria has stood by Gary through everything, in spite of fellow cobbles residents warning her about his villainous nature.
The only thing the hairdresser asked of her beau was that he be honest with her. Unfortunately, Gary refrained from telling the full truth about his crimes.
Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien) knows what he’s capable of, and with her having reported the location of Rick Neelan’s (Greg Wood) corpse, the police arrive on Gary’s doorstep and haul him in for questioning.
‘I don’t think Maria’s surprised by anything that happens with Gary any more,’ actress Samia Longchambon told Metro.co.uk, ‘We saw that after the honeymoon when they came back, she was questioning him about some credit card bills that she’d found, he’d been maxxing them out, so she knows that he keeps things from her.
‘But this is huge. She knows he’s a lot of things but she doesn’t think he’s a murderer. So this is the first time that she’s like: ‘What the hell’s going on? Why are you being questioned about a man’s disappearance?’
Could he actually be capable of murder? I don’t think she truly believes that he could murder somebody but the doubts are creeping in.’
Those doubts are multiplied when Maria later walks in on a a conversation between Gary and Sarah, as Sarah calls the young man a murderer.
‘She’s annoyed with him.’ reveals Samia, ‘Even though Sarah’s a friend, she’s still quite wary of their relationship, so when she walks in the house and sees Sarah accusing him of killing Rick, it obviously takes her aback a bit, and then later she questions Gary about it.
‘I think it’s really pushing her to the edge with him, I don’t think it’s looking goof for them because of the level of trust that she hasn’t got for him any more because of all this, she just knows, deep down, that he’s hiding someone from her and something so serious.
‘Yes, Maria’s gullible, but she’s not completely dense, she knows that it must be quite serious if the police are questioning him, he’s been telling her for ages that Rick’s gone off to Spain and no-one really knows where he is, so people are asking more and more questions now so she can’t ignore it.
‘Even if she wants to, she can’t ignore it this time.’
