Coronation Street: Audrey comforted Maria

Viewers will know that last night on the cobbles (Tuesday, April 2), Maria rushed out of work and left a bridal party to do their own hair at the salon.

She’d been watching her secret camera app and had seen Liam go into the bathroom and not come out, fearing the worst.

When she got back to the flat, realising that Liam was fine, Maria made out that she was just picking up her hair rollers. At the salon, the bridal party were livid and were then given the service for free as an apology.

Tonight, Maria broke down in tears at work as she told Audrey about Liam looking up ways to end his own life on the laptop.

Audrey was taken aback to hear this revelation and then told Maria that she’d attempted to take her own life previously after suffering an overdose.

Maria was heartbroken as she had no idea that Audrey had struggled too. Audrey then explained how lucky she felt to have her loved ones to support her.
