Coronation Street's Samia Ghadie revealed that a popular character is being killed off - but who's it going to be?
Someone in Coronation Street is heading for the chop, and it’s going to be a weepy scene according to Samia Ghadie. Tissues at the ready, then…
The actress, who plays Maria Connor, wrote a blog for OK! Magazine revealing that she’d been filming “some of THE saddest scenes I’ve ever done in my 17 years at Corrie. When I first read the scripts I was in tears… You may need your tissues when they air. And we say a sad goodbye to a well loved member of the cast.”
Cue mad panic about who would be departing the cobbles in a weepy farewell.. WHO could it be?!
Well, we now know – Maria’s dog Ozzy is going to bark his last bark. *Sob*
In scenes described as ‘devastating’, Maria will have to lay her pooch to rest. He’s been at her side through some tough times: he went missing in 2008 when Maria and her former fiance Liam took his to the Lake District. Not long afterwards, he was a source of furry comfort when Liam was killed in a hit-and-run.
Ozzy briefly lived with Maria’s brother Kirk Sutherland when she moved to Ireland to live with Liam’s parents after his death, before moving back in with her and her son Liam Jr. He’s really been there through thick and then – who needs a husband with dogs like Ozzy about?
That’s not the only drama Maria’s going to face. Samia also revealed that Maria and Aidan Connor – played by Shayne Ward – will enjoy some drunken, er, shenanigans, despite both of them being taken. How very naughty. And she won’t even have Ozzy to cuddle during the inevitable fallout!
Thankfully, things are going much smoother in Samia’s personal life – she and fiance Sylvain Longchambon are “nearly good to go” for their wedding. Altogether now: aww!
