‘Coronation Street’s Mikey North suspects Gary Windass and Maria Connor will eventually split.
The 33-year-old actor’s character Gary is set to marry Maria – who is played by Samia Longchambon – after he declared his love to his ex-girlfriend Sarah Barlow, but Mickey has little confidence Gary and Maria will have their happily ever after.
Speaking to TV Times, he said: "My guess is they probably won’t be together … but who knows? This is the world of soap, so we’ll have to see!"
Mikey believes Gary does truly love Maria but is unable to move on from Sarah after the two shared a moment together.
He continued: "It’s a nice family unit that they have got, and their kids get on. I think she has been great for him. She has forgiven him for a lot of stuff, and been really lovely to him, and he feels that he owes her a lot.
"[He] genuinely does love Maria, and he comes to the conclusion that he wants to be with her".
However, it seems Samia doesn’t have a lot of confidence in the couple’s relationship either, as Maria has unknowingly wed a killer.
Gary is responsible for the deaths of Rick Neelan and Rana Habeeb, having killed off the villainous Rick in self-defence and accidentally wiped out Rana when he tampered with the factory roof and it collapsed.
Samia said: "I think she’d be furious and devastated she’s potentially about to be married to a murderer. Especially after her first husband, Liam, was murdered and she got engaged to his killer.
"She’s not got a great track record with murderers. I think she’d run a mile if she actually found out the truth. She doesn’t learn from her mistakes and trusts people too quickly considering what she’s been through.
"My advice to her would be to stay away from men. She’s very naive."
