Mary (played by Patti Claire) will notice Tyrone (Alan Hasall) is struggling to mange with the childcare of his young daughter Ruby Dobbs (Macy Alabi) on Coronation Street, whilst also trying to maintain his workload at the garage.
Tyrone has been left to fend for himself as wife Fiz Brown (Jennie McAlpine) is living in Birmingham, trying to seek help for daughter Hope Stape’s (Isabella Flanagan) behavioural problems.
The mechanic’s grandmother Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman) is also taking a break from life on the cobbles as she enjoys a holiday with her other adopted grandson James (James Butler) in Italy.
However, Tyrone will believe all his prayers have been answered when Mary turns up on his doorstep on the ITV soap, but he will issue some words of caution when he begins to question her motives.
Tyrone won’t think anything of Mary’s intentions until his boss Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) suggests the florist may have taken a shine to him.
Initially dismissing the comments, Tyrone will become more concerned when he discovers Mary has left a hot water bottle in his bed after a long day at work.
What strikes a chord with Tyrone that Mary may have really developed feelings for him is when he receives a Valentine’s card from a mystery admirer.
Noticing the handwriting matches Mary’s, it’s not long before Tyrone confronts his new nanny about her feelings towards him.
Next week, Tyrone will tell Mary he only sees her as a friend, trying to let her down gently.
However, Mary won’t take the comments too well and leaves Tyrone wandering whether he got misread the signals.
Tyrone is then left grovelling to Mary, trying to make amends for misinterpreting her intentions for helping him.
Will Mary forgive and forget, or is her reaction a deflection of her growing feelings for Tyrone?
If the florist realises she sees Tyrone more than a friend, she may be trying to fight for his attention when Fiz and Evelyn return to the street in the near future.
However, this could have serious repercussions as the lovestruck nanny finds herself a victim of the factory collapse set to rock Weaterhfield later this year.
In an attempt to get closer to Tyrone, Mary could spend more time hanging around the garage, which neighbours with the Underwold factory.
