Corrie Maria’s online abuser identity ‘exposed’ as fans work out exit for star

Coronation Street fans are sure they have uncovered the identity of Maria Windass’ online harasser after she was once again targeted after becoming a local councillor.

Maria has been battling trolls for much of the year, with her previous abuser exposed as one of the men unhappy with her eco-campaigning – but now eagle-eyed fans think they’ve rumbled a huge twist.

And viewers now think Maria’s neighbour Shona Platt could be the one targeting her this time under the pseudonym Sadboy55.

With Maria accusing Shona’s step-son Max and Shona desperate to defend him, fans think it could herald a temporary exit for actress Julia Goulding while she heads off for maternity leave.

Taking to Reddit to air their theories, one fan wrote: “I think it’s Shona and it will somehow link to her having to leave for a period of time.”

Another echoed: “Going by her strange behaviour and the fact that they need to write her out for a while, I’m going with Shona.”

As a third fan guessed: “Shona, she was so adamant it wasn’t Max!”, someone else agreed: “I was sure it’d be Max until [Friday]. I’m now thinking Shona.”

Someone else had a very well thought-out theory, taking to the Coronation Street subreddit to write: “Well, whoever it is, they know she works at Trim Up North, so they're either local, or have been lurking/stalking in the background, in which case, they probably also know where she lives.”

All of which would make sense for Shona, as her husband David is Maria’s employer at the salon.

However, the eagle-eyed fan wasn’t drawing any conclusions as they went on: “Does ‘Sadboy55’ mean it's a male, aged 55, or born in 1955?

“Or lives/lived at a house/flat/whatever, numbered 55? Or is it really a female, pretending to be male to throw people off the scent, and for whom the number 55 has no relevance whatsoever?

“If it's a man, born in 1955, he'd be 67 now, so that could mean it's one of the other councillors, maybe?”

Other fans were eager to suggest Hope Stape as the culprit after she became sneaky about her own online activity with Mad Dog – while other suggestions included Nina Lucas and even Tracy Barlow.
