Corrie fans convinced they know who is targeting Maria with sick messages

Coronation Street fans are convinced that they know who's trolling Maria Connor online after the latest episode of the ITV soap.

Maria, played by Samia Longchabon, has been on the Street for over two decades but has never faced issues like the one she's facing currently.

Having put a request in to make a change to the bin schedule in Weatherfield, sick trolls have targeted the poor mother in the aftermath, including Photoshopping her head onto a naked body.

Maria later decided that being on the council is not worth all the strife it’s putting their family through.

However, it seems that Corrie fanatics have rumbled who's behind the sick messages and deep fakes – and it's someone that Maria knows very, very well.

Taking to Twitter, fans commented on the storyline and fumed over the identity of the culprit – convinced they've cracked it.

"#Corrie it's Gary texting Maria he doesn't want you to be a powerful women," one suggested, whilst others suggested Gary was the reason behind the trolling: "I wonder if someone is targeting Maria to get back at Gary for something? #Corrie @itvcorrie."

Others took to social media to comment on the tough storyline.

"The simple fact is, ignoring trolls no longer works. Don't be telling victims "ignore them, they'll go away" because trolls don't go away. More needs to be done to stop online abusers. It can go on for years and years. #CoronationStreet," one wrote.

Another added: "Feel so sorry for Maria. Getting trolled there is zero need to troll someone. If you don't like someone then scroll past what they post etc #CoronationStreet #Corrie," as a third wrote: "That's the thing with trolls, they'll do/say anything online just to get a reaction from anyone, best thing to do is ignore them. #Corrie."

Explaining how Maria feels about it all, Samia explained: "She’s absolutely mortified. One, that it even exists, and two, that [her son] Liam has seen this video and thinks that it’s her – these deep-fakes actually look like the person.

"So she’s absolutely mortified thinking that everyone’s going to think that she’s been doing pornography. She thinks that everyone who voted her in as councillor will see this video and think that she’s someone that she’s not."
