Maria to face breast cancer scare

We've seen Sally go through it, and next month, Maria will face a breast cancer scare. There's a long interview in the Mirror with Samia Smith who tells us that she herself when through a breast cancer scare just after her baby was born. She found a small lump and was lucky to be able to get in and have it seen straight away and in her case, it was benign.

As far as Corrie goes, this will be the catalyst to a different sort of relationship triangle when Maria turns to Marcus for support, not Jason. She and Marcus will find their feelings are stronger than they realized.

“They are good friends but the lines start to get blurred. She knows he is gay but she can’t help her feelings for him."

As you can imagine, poor Jason is going to be broken hearted yet again. Will Marcus and Maria go the distance? I reckon not and she'll be broken hearted as well. Again. 

Samia also talks about motherhood but says very little about her divorce and new relationship with former co-star Will Thorpe other than to say she's happy.

Well, if we're going to revisit yet another storyline, at least it would be more interesting for Maria to have an unexpected pregnancy and turn to Marcus rather than Jason, particularly with the surrogacy business happening elsewhere on the Street.

It would be much more interesting and original if one of the MALE characters was diagnosed with breast cancer - or even prostate cancer.

Why breast cancer again? Why not cervical cancer or bowl cancer or Lupus or Motor Nuron, very unimaginative writing again. Also I dont think Samia Ghadi is a strong enough actress to take on a serious storyline like this, it would have been strongly done with someone like Jane Danson.

Samia Ghadie is a fine actress and will be great with this storyline!

Any excuse to get Maria and Marcus together.

And how many times is Jason going to get dumped and broken hearted by his girlfriends. The past few years we had Sarah (although he chose not to go with her to wherever it was), Becky, Tina, Rosie and now Maria. This lad never gets a break.

What is with these writers? Do they just sit in a boardroom, write down ideas (even though they;ve been done before) toss them in a box, and randomly choose one?
List of characters that need to go.
Maria
Gloria and take the rest of the Stella's with her
Windass family
Tina/Tommy
Dev/Sunita et al
and
Tracy friggin Barlow!!

Maria/Marcus romance reminds me of Bob & Rose series with the wonderful Lesley Sharp. Gay man falls in love with someone who happens to be a woman. The drama was a non-preachy discussion fluid nature of sexuality. Gays are always saying how you can't help whom you love, and this turned that on its head. I hope Corrie does something similar.
