Biography

Liam is the son of Maria and the late Liam Connor. His older brother, Paul, was stillborn a year before Liam was born.

After Liam's father was killed in a hit and run organised by Tony Gordon in October 2008, Maria discovered she was pregnant. She gave birth to Liam in July 2009 with the help of his father's killer Tony, who helped support Maria and was to later have a relationship with her. Maria named her baby Liam in honour of her late husband, and also gave him the middle name Anthony, in honour of Tony.

When it was later discovered that Tony was a murderer, Maria moved to Ireland along with Liam to live with his grandparents Barry and Helen Connor, but they returned to Weatherfield in 2010, moving into 2a Coronation Street, the flat above Audrey's salon.

Liam would later find another father figure in the form of Marcus Dent who in 2012 began a relationship with his mother. However this family unit would come to an end in March 2014, when Marcus slept with Todd Grimshaw, prompting Maria to throw Marcus out and bar him from seeing Liam. After a nervous breakdown, Maria took Liam to see her parents in Cyprus, and when they returned she allowed Liam to see Marcus and made up with him. They said goodbye to Marcus when he left Weatherfield in July 2014 after splitting up from Todd.

In 2016 Maria married Argentinian Pablo Duarte, in order to help him return to the UK. She later made a full confession to the police after coming under suspicion of Caz Hammond's murder. She was cleared of that charge when Caz was found alive and well, but with the sham marriage charge hanging over her, Maria was forced to explain to Liam she may be going away for a while. On Christmas Eve that year, Maria was sentenced to twelve months in prison, leaving Liam distraught. When Darryl, the pet rat of Craig Tinker, died after chewing through some electric cables in February 2017, Liam called the police. Tearfully, he falsely confessed to the "murder", hoping he would be taken to prison to be with his mum. His spirits were raised when Eva Price escorted him to visit his mum in prison, where the two shared an emotional reunion. Maria was later released after only three months due to good behaviour.
