Coronation Street Blog Interview: Samia Longchambon

There’s nothing quite like an eleventh hour wedding interruption, and when it comes to Coronation Street, we’ve been treated to more than a few. On Monday’s Corrie we had the pleasure of experiencing yet another when Maria burst in in the middle of Aidan and Eva’s lavish ceremony.
