Samia Smith returns to work after discovering body in van

Tuesday September 8, 2009

Coronation Street actress Samia Smith has returned to work on the popular soap just days after she found a dead body in the back of a van.

The actress called police on Sunday after seeing the body of a 26-year-old man in a parked Vauxhall Combi in Manchester.

It is believed a barking dog from inside the vehicle alerted Samia and her property developer husband Matthew to look inside.

The soap star, who plays Corrie hairdresser Maria Connor, is due to give birth to her first child later this month.

"Samia was quite shaken up but was still able to make it into work to film scenes,"  an insider says.
