Coronation Street has released new images showing the moment that Maria Connor (Samia Ghadie) and Aidan Connor (Samia Ghadie) have their illicit one-night stand.
The pair are to get passionate on Friday 12 August when each hit problems with their respective partners.
Upcoming scenes will see Aidan get irritated by the speed with which Eva wants to accelerate their relationship, while Maria loses her temper with Luke after he makes an unfortunate blunder.
Seeking solace in each other’s company, Maria and Aidan find themselves getting stuck into the wine and reminiscing about their childhoods – all of which eventually leads to a surprise kiss on the sofa.
Speaking about the upcoming drama, Corrie boss Kate Oates said recently: “Maria decides that – if things were different – Aidan would be someone she’d be interested in.
“But she’s cheated, so she does the right thing and breaks it off with Luke, which terrifies Aidan because he’s worried that she might come after him!
“He’s heard rumours about when she lost the plot, so he starts to think, ‘have I just slept with a crazy lady?’ Of course, Maria finds that insulting, so what you’ll see is a wedge between her and Aidan.
“Eva is blissfully unaware of all this. As far as she can see, she’s got her man and found someone to complete her.”
