Samia Longchambon was shocked to learn that her soap character, Maria Connor, has had 31 boyfriends on the cobblestones over the past two decades

The Coronation Street star, 38, said the revelation made her ‘eyes water’ when TV host Lorraine Kelly shared about the figure on Friday in Lorraine

Lorraine laughed and revealed a screen with a number of images of all the men Maria had dated on the fictional street since 2000

Proving that she had forgotten some of the relationships her soap character had been involved in, she added: « It’s pretty impressive – it blew me away! »

Samia’s character Maria recently married bad boy Gary Windass and hinting that their romance might be short-lived, she added: « I don’t think Maria is going to find her Prince Charming – certainly not in. Gary!

It comes after Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh revealed she hopes to land the soap opera role in 2020

Kimberley was also up for the role, she confirmed, and was in the bottom two or three

She was so close, but Samia got the part and has remained on the ITV soap opera ever since

Speaking on The One Show on Tuesday, Kimberley confessed to hosts Gethin Jones and Alex Jones

She explained: « I actually went down to the last two or three for Maria in Coronation Street

« I think it was like the year before I entered Girls Aloud so yeah things could have been very different »
