    Coronation Street star Samia Longchambon has gained support from her co-stars after opening up about her grief following the death of her dad 13 years ago.

    The actress, 40, who plays Maria Windass in the ITV soap, shared a photo on Instagram of her and her father Joseph which had been placed into a photo frame.

    She said: "A funny thing just happened. I just thought I’m going to give my dad a call. He passed away over 13 years ago but every now and then for a split second I forget."

    The actress added: "And then it’s like a punch in the gut all over again to know that I’ll never be able to speak to him."

    She went on to say: "I still have his number in my phone," adding: "Grief is weird isn’t it. Just thought I’d share it in case it happens to any of you who have lost loved ones… sending love to you."

    Samia ended her post by saying: "I’m gonna listen to some classics from the drifters now (his favourite band) and remember some fun times."

    Corrie co-star Sally Carman, who plays Abi Webster, said: "Oh Sam, sending you so much love."
