Samia Ghadie teases shocking death of popular Coronation Street character
Coronation Street star Samia Ghadie has teased a “well-loved member of the cast” is set to die in “some of THE saddest scenes” she’s ever filmed on the show.
Ghadie, who has played Maria Connor on the soap for seventeen years, said: “It’s been great fun filming, but this week I’ve been recording some of THE saddest scenes I’ve ever done in my seventeen years at Corrie.
“When I first read the scripts I was in tears so getting to film them has just sent me off. You may need your tissues when they air. And we say a sad goodbye to a well loved member of the cast.”
While the identity of the death is being kept under wraps, reports have suggested the character dies after a huge explosion rips through the cobbles.
Last month, The Sun reported that: “This is going to be up there with some of the best scenes in Corrie history.
“Characters are going to be crawling through flames to escape, and there’s talk of killing at least one character.”
It was recently announced that Coronation Street would be adding an extra episode per week of the soap from 2017, and more characters would be added to shoulder the additional workload.
