Su Pollard for Marcus' mum on Coronation Street? That was our fan of the week's fantasy Coronation Street storyline last week and it really put a smile on my face. But it also made me think a little more about Marcus' mum and what she'd be like and then it got me thinking some more.
What do we really know about Marcus? He turned up fully, and quite perfectly formed as a boyfriend for Sean, and he's a hit with the fans too. But have we heard him mention his family, his background or where he's from?
I reckon it's time we got to know more about Marcus and if that means bringing in Su Pollard to play his mum, so much the better. What do you think?
