Tat’s got to go! Corrie Samia decides to ditch top

-

CORONATION Street star Samia Longchambo­n has said it’s ‘not a good sign’ after she sought her fans and followers’ advice on a bit of a wardrobe dilemma.

But it wasn’t about her own wardrobe choices but that of her long-standing Weatherfie­ld character Maria Windass.

Earlier this week, the actress, who has appeared in the ITV soap since 2000 when she landed the role of a then-Maria Sutherland, posed for a selfie as she showed off a patterned turtleneck top that Maria wears and has been prompting some questions from fans of the long-running soap. She said: “Every time I (as Maria) wear this top on @coronation­street I get messages saying it looks like I’ve had a neck tattoo..”

She then asked: “Should we ditch it or keep it?! Tell me below... you can decide Maria’s wardrobe on this one...” Samia also added: “Ps I also get loads asking where her long green coat is from.. it’s @riverislan­d @asos but not sure if they still do it.”

Samia’s fans and followers were also keen to have their say with a mix of keep and ditch messages.

Taking to her Instagram Story later, the 41-year-old said: “After my post the other day about Maria’s top that makes it look like I’ve got a neck tattoo, apparently, I thought I’d just come on and give you a little update on the feedback.”

Rocking a grey sweatshirt with not a real or fake tattoo in sight, the set in the studio and did a line run with Mikey [North], who plays Gary and our lovely director Jason. And the first thing Jason said to me after the line run was, ‘That top makes it look like you’ve got a neck tattoo and I was really distracted.”

She added: “He’d not seen the post at that point so I think if the director is distracted by the top then that’s probably not a good sign. So I think I’m going to have to ditch the top and I will give it to charity.”
