An eccentric spinster who was introduced as Norris Cole’s competition rival. 

A friendship developed and Mary was clearly smitten with Norris. Sadly, Norris didn’t reciprocate. 

After a brief hiatus travelling the world, Mary returned to the street and set up home in her motorhome on the cobbles. Mary was desperate for Norris to love her that she went to extreme lengths. She held him hostage while on a Brontë holiday in Yorkshire but Norris escaped. Mary finally came to the realisation that she would always be second to Rita in Norris’ eyes and she agreed on friendship.

Over the years, Mary has offered her services to many street businesses. She helps out at the Kabin and Roy’s Rolls and since 2013 she has become a full-time nanny to Aadi and Asha Alahan. 

Having been rebuffed by Norris, she then tried to woo Dev Alahan but had a rival in Julie Carp. But in 2015 she met Brendan Finch and they began a relationship. But sadly he was revealed to be married. Mary went on to have a brief fling with him but when they were confronted by his wife, Mary came to the realisation that Brendan would never leave his wife for her.

She's anything but boring :)
and it's great when she comes out
with those weird little stories from
her past, or that relate to a given situation
but not quite appropriately.

And she's super great with Dev's kids.

Rock on Mary, keep the faith!
