A character in British Soap opera Coronation Street is set to become pregnant after a passionate fling with her gay best friend.

Character Maria Connor will discover her pregnancy after a one night stand with male midwife, Marcus Dent.

A Coronation Street source told Britain’s The Mirror newspaper: ‘Both Marcus and Maria have struggled with their emotions for months but deep down there are fires burning inside the two of them – and finally they end up in bed together.’

Audiences have seen the pair growing closer over the last few months as Marcus helped his friend during a breast cancer scare.

The pressure and confusion during the situation resulted in the pair sharing a kiss, luckily stopping before Maria’s boyfriend Jason entered the room.

The episode is due to air in the New Year.
