Coronation Street fans think there could be an affair twist coming up on the cobbles between Phill Whittaker and Maria Connor.
During the latest instalment, Phill helped Maria turn her campaign around as he gave her confidential information about the council, showing that they have been covering up the dangers of local air pollution.
Maria, who is determined to get on the local council, then handed the information over to The Weatherfield Gazette, revealing that she had spoken to a whistle blower.
Celebrating the good news, Maria, who is with Gary Windass, offered to buy Phill and his partner Fiz Stape a drink as she declared: “Your fella is a hero, honestly, you are Phill!”

Soap watchers now think that Phill and Maria could get close due to bonding over her campaign as they even predicted an affair twist.
One person said: “Why do I get the feeling there’s a Maria/Phil affair storyline coming??! #Corrie.”
A different account put: “#Corrie Phil and Maria are gonna get it on!”
Another follower wrote: “I think Maria will try and steal Phil from Fizz or Phil will try to seduce Maria. #Corrie #CoronationStreet @itvcorrie.”
While a different viewer added: “It’s only a matter of time before Maria nicks Phil off Fiz! #Corrie #CoronationStreet.”
Elsewhere, it was a dramatic episode after Lydia Chambers attacked Adam Barlow following a confrontation.
During the latest instalment, Adam was left devastated as his wife Sarah said she wanted a divorce after Lydia pretended that she was having an affair with the solicitor.
Adam then decided to play Lydia at her own game as he met her at a shopping centre with his phone recording their conversation as he confronted her about her lies.
However, Lydia soon realised she was being recorded as she snatched Adam’s phone away and he chased her upstairs where they continued to argue.
During the confrontation, Lydia revealed why she was out for revenge, reminding Adam that he cheated on her at least three times as well as telling her to “get rid of it” when she discovered she was pregnant aged 19.
After hearing her side of the story and thinking they had made progress, Adam begged Lydia to tell Sarah the truth and that she had been lying to which she then accused the solicitor of not being sorry.
A scuffle then started between the two before Lydia shoved Adam off the balcony and he fell to the ground below with Daniel Osbourne witnessing the fall and calling an ambulance.
