Coronation Street character Maria Connor is set to find herself in deadly danger in Spring when newcomer Frank Foster does something truly shocking! The newcomer played by ex-The Bill actor Andrew Lancel debuted last week and is set to show a nasty side.
The drama all kicks off when Maria replaces Michelle as Carla's right-hand woman and suave Frank is a client for Underworld. A Corrie insider said: ''Carla sees flirting with the clients as part of the job for Maria, just like Michelle before her.''
The insider continued: ''But what starts out as an innocent bit of mixing work with pleasure develops into something more sinister as Frank makes it clear that he expects to bed Maria. She'll be shocked when he makes a serious move on her.''
In a shocking twist, viewers will watch as Frank sexually prepositions Maria and gets violent when she knocks him back.
With Maria having already dated Charlie Stubbs, married philandering Liam Connor who was then murdered by her next beau Tony and now dating bad boy Chris, it's looking like Maria isn't having much luck with males. Exciting times are coming up!
