Elsewhere, Maria Connor (played by Samia Longchambon) found herself yet again between two men, as she berated boyfriend Gary Windass (Mikey North) after she saw him attacking a man, and in turn, drowned her sorrows at the barbershop where ex-partner Ali Neeson (James Burrows) paid her a surprise visit.
In scenes which aired last week, those watching at home saw Maria throw herself at Ali, as if they were making up for lost time.
As the two rekindled their lost love, will Ali expose his and Maria’s secret to Gary?
But now the villain has dropped to one knee, will the torn hairdresser say yes?
