3rd March2011: Frank Foster showed his true and depraved nature when Maria Connor was sent to his house to try and close a business deal for Underworld by Carla Connor. Frank's initial interest was in Michelle Connor but she hadn't returned the compliment. Maria glammed herself up for the evening. They shared a few drinks on his sofa, and Frank forced himself on her, believing he was onto something. Panic-stricken, Maria managed to heave him off and then bolted from the house in tears. The next day, he blithely arrived at the factory to sign the contract. Maria tried to act "professionally" at first but then broke and accused him of trying to rape her. He apologised, saying he had misread the signals and swore he meant no harm. A supportive Carla suggested calling the police but Maria stopped her, knowing it would be her word against his.
Kylie Platt is the wife of David and mother of Max and Lily Platt. Kylie was raised by a drug addict mother and abusive father. She resented her half-sister Becky Granger for leaving home when Kylie was eight, and was thrown out after falling pregnant at nineteen. Max's dad, Callum Logan, ended up in prison, and Max was taken into care as Kylie was homeless. In 2010, Becky tracked Kylie down and helped her regain custody of Max, but fearing she couldn't hack it as a mother, Kylie sold Max to Becky and Steve McDonald and left. She made a surprise return to Weatherfield the following year after meeting and getting engaged to David Platt in Tenerife, where she was working as a cage dancer. After getting married, the Platts won custody of Max and in 2013 Kylie gave birth to their daughter Lily - although there was uncertainty over her parentage due to a one-night stand between Kylie and Nick Tilsley. Arriving in the Street as an opportunistic thief, Kylie frequently pushed David to get what he could from his family - including Audrey Roberts's salon where they both worked - but matured as she was accepted into the Platt clan.
