Marcus is gay, always has been, always will be, says Charlie Condou who plays the smitten Mr Dent on Coronation Street. So what's the point of him kissing Maria? I'm not enjoying this storyline, in fact I think it might be my least favourite story on Corrie right now.
I like Marcus, a lot. In fact, I think we should meet his family and he should be given more of a background. Let us see him grow on the Street within the confines of the cobbles. Let him have some excitement, some drama. Kissing Maria in the kitchen isn't it.
If I had my way, and I know I don't but bear with me while I dream. I think Marcus should dump Aiden, meet another fella and fall in love and get wed, adopt kids. He should patch things up with Sean who could be the best man at Marcus' wedding.
But never mind what I think about Marcus and Maria - what's your take on it?
