Ever since his return to the cobbles Todd has set his sights on Marcus and he recently succeeded in his mission, while Maria remained happily oblivious.
"Things for Maria and Marcus have been brilliant at the moment," explained Samia. "They've been house hunting for a while, they've been looking for the perfect house but it's not transpired and that might be fate, there might be a reason for that.
"Maria hasn't got a clue about what happened between Marcus and Todd.
"There are no alarm bells ringing at all in her head. She just thinks Todd is a friend, Todd and Marcus get on great so that's fine."
But unknown to Maria, Todd has been scheming to steal Marcus from her to strengthen his point that Marcus is gay and doesn't belong with her.
"Marcus has kind of put all of her fears to bed about him being gay and she just completely trusts him," said Samia.
"Todd's on a mission, he is on a mission to prove to himself and to Marcus that he is in fact gay and to break them up.
"He doesn't care one little bit that Marcus is saying he is happy with Maria."
And soon Todd will finally get his moment to expose Marcus' actions...
Samia explained: "So Todd comes into the salon for a little trim and overhears Maria saying to Audrey that she is going to surprise Marcus because she can make the house viewing and Marcus will be really chuffed.
"Todd decides that now is his time to pounce, quite literally.
"Todd decides that it's a brilliant idea to turn up instead of Maria at the viewing for the house and actually seduces him in the show home.
"As Todd and Marcus are getting it on in the house, Audrey and Maria are walking up the garden path.
"Be prepared for some huge drama when Maria finds out about Marcus and Todd!"
