The brand new Barlow boys, Adam and Daniel, will be causing carnge all over the cobbles during the festive period and we wouldn't have it any other. Well, Adam will, anyway.

Adam and Aidan Connor's rivalry over Maria will turn incredibly violent over the christmas period as Maria refuses to be Aidan's 'other women' and spends the night with a very keen Adam Barlow instead. Mainly to get back at Aidan, of course.

And Bethany could seriously ‘go off the rails’ soon following a series of devastating blows recently – including discovering that her mum Sarah Platt is now dating her crush Gary Windass.

Maria has found herself in quite a spot of bother recently, but the real reason she will find herself back behind bars is not because she was framed for the "murder" of Caz Hammond - despite Maria currently being on remand in jail after she was framed by Caz, who faked her own death.

Instead, the hairdresser is to face a 12-month prison sentence following the exposure of her sham marriage.
