Smacker shock

TV Times - - Soaps -

n paper, Maria and Caz have a lot in com­mon – both are beau­ti­ful but bonkers. But while Caz is out and proud, Maria def­i­nitely prefers men and is hor­ri­fied when her pal and lodger tries to kiss her.

Caz makes the move mo­ments af­ter Maria tells her that Ai­dan has se­cured her an in­ter­view for a job at a ‘lo­cal’ fac­tory.

‘Maria’s not sure how to re­act,’

Osays Samia Ghadie, who plays the con­fused crimper. ‘It’s not a full-on snog, so Maria won­ders if there re­ally is any­thing in it. But Caz does kiss her more than a friend would.’

When Maria tells Au­drey and So­phie about the in­ci­dent, it dawns on her that Caz did mean some­thing. Au­drey laughs and, re­call­ing Maria’s pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship with Mar­cus, sug­gests she’s ‘a mag­net for gays’. Caz over­hears and runs off, and Maria then dis­cov­ers that she’s packed her bags and fled.

Adds Samia: ‘Maria’s pri­or­ity then be­comes to get Caz to talk to her again. She doesn’t want to up­set her and feels guilty that she heard them all laugh­ing about the kiss. She knows Caz has got nowhere else to go and is wor­ried about her.’

Maria en­lists So­phie’s help and they even­tu­ally find Caz at a hos­tel. They man­age to per­suade her to come home, but she’s an­gry with Ai­dan for not telling her the fac­tory job was ac­tu­ally in New­cas­tle. Maria then makes a dig about the Un­der­world boss’s dis­hon­esty in front of Eva, which makes him squirm.

At home, Caz and Maria agree to put the kiss be­hind them, but Ai­dan calls Maria out for hav­ing a go at him and warns her that Caz fan­cies her. Is he right about that?

Maria’s con­fused when Caz moves in for a kiss…
