Coronation Street storylines

Over the last few weeks, Maria hasn't been on-screen as much. However, it looks like there will be more to come for her over the next few months.

Although she hasn't been seen as much, her fiancé Gary has been acting very strangely.

As viewers know, Gary murdered loan shark Rick Neelan last year. But when Rick's daughter Kelly came looking for answers on her dad's whereabouts, he told her he had fled the country as the police were looking for him.

However, his past came back to haunt him when Kelly started hanging around the street. As Gary tried to help her with issues in her personal life, Gary's nemesis Adam Barlow started to become suspicious.

Will Adam find out what really happened to Rick, and will Maria find out?

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
