After all the controversy they caused getting together in the first place, it would seem that the romance between Maria Connor and boyfriend Marcus Dent is due to come crashing to an end in Coronation Street this week.
Fans of the show will know how Maria (Samia Ghadie) and Marcus (Charlie Condou) got together last year, despite the fact that they were both in other relationships, and despite the fact that Marcus was gay!

As fans of Coronation Street will know, in last week’s episodes, cash strapped Tina McIntyre volunteered to become a surrogate mother for Gary Windass (Mikey North) and Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston).
However, when Tommy (Chris Fountain) found out about the deal that Tina had struck with Owen (Ian Puleston-Davies) – in which he offered her £15k to carry the baby – he went mad and told Tina that if she goes through with the idea, he’ll leave her.
Which is a tad unreasonable, given that the couple’s financial woes are in fact all his fault!
But nonetheless, in tonight’s double bill of episodes, we’ll see that neither Tommy nor Tina are prepared to back down on their opposing stances.

As we reported recently, when Coronation Street’s unlikely hero Kirk Sutherland rushes to Beth Tinker’s aid – after a bloke in a pub insults her – Kirk walks away with a black eye, but also a new found respect from gobby knicker stitcher Beth…
And today, Inside Soap reveal that Lisa George – who of course plays Beth – has hinted that there’s a romance in store for her Corrie character in the near future.
Refusing to name names, Lisa teased, “I can’t tell you who the man in question is – but he likes animals!”
Well that’s just about got to be our Kirky – who’s played by the brilliantly funny Andy Whyment, who also stars in The Royle Family as petty criminal Darren – who’s been single ever since his relationship with Julie Carp (Katy Cavanagh) ended a good few years ago now… Read more & comment »
In a forthcoming episode of Corrie, poor old Kirk Sutherland – he of the tiny brain but big heart – will find himself on the receiving end of a punch in the face, thanks to Beth Tinker!
The storyline begins when chivalrous Kirk (Andy Whyment) sticks up for Beth (Lisa George) when she throws a pint over a particularly obnoxious pub goer…
However, his knight in shining armour routine gets him a shiner as the bloke lamps him, flooring the poor knicker packer.
But when Beth’s overwhelmed by his chivalry as the pair end up “rolling round in the gutter”, could things be taking a romantic turn?
Apropos of gutters, Coronation Street star Kym Marsh has received a caution for fly tipping after a bag of her household refuse – including scripts from the show – were found abandoned at a roadside… Read more & comment »

As fans of Corrie will know, Steve McDonald and Tracy Barlow – though technically, she is now Tracy McDonald of course – are at war since Steve (Simon Gregson) divided No13 up into two separate flats.
Tracy (Kate Ford) has tried to make life as difficult as she can for Steve in the hope that he’ll give in and take the partition walls down, thereby – in her own head – giving Tracy the opportunity to get back in his good books.
However, as the Sun’s TV Biz reports today, Tracy’s about to get her wish as Steve does indeed take down the partitions, but there’s a horrid twist in store when Tracy discovers Steve’s moved gobby knicker stitcher Beth (Lisa George) and her out of control son Craig into the house.
Of the plotline twist, Kate told the paper, “Tracy is completely horrified. This is a nightmare… Read more & comment »
She was Steve’s nightmare date at the Bistro back in August, but Beth, played by Lisa George, is set to return to the Street later this year.
Beth was last seen when Steve (Simon Gregson) tried to make his ex Becky jealous, and called up an old flame.
Unfortunately for Steve, Beth had put her modelling days far behind her and had also brought her son Craig along for the date!
And it wasn’t long before Beth and Becky (Katherine Kelly) were arguing and Nick (Ben Price) had to throw her out! Read more & comment »
