Maria and Pablo's sham marriage was exposed this week on Coronation Street. It's time, then, to take a look at my personal top five Corrie couplings that weren't all that they seemed.
1. Graeme Proctor marries Xin Chiang
2. Steve McDonald marries Karen Phillips
Janice Battersby bet £10 that Karen wouldn’t be able to get engaged, so Karen persuaded Steve to propose to her in front of all the Rovers' regulars. Janice then upped the stakes from a few pounds to two days wages, on the condition that Steve and Karen got wed. Neither Karen nor Steve would back out - but each thought that the other would. They were as surprised as the other guests when they both turned up at the Register Office - and even more surprised when they both said "I do"! Their first marriage ended in divorce and they married again a few years later.
3. Roy Cropper marries Tracy Barlow
4. Emily Bishop marries Arnold Swain
5.Peter Barlow marries Shelley Unwin
Any more sham marriages you can recall from Corrie's past?
