Shona Platt (Julia Goulding), who will shortly return to Coronation Street, is unsure if she wants to continue living on the cobbles after seeing David’s (Jack P Shepherd) activities.
David is currently dealing with Max’s (Paddy Bever) imprisonment as a result of his guilty plea for his participation in Griff’s (Michael Condron) extremist group.
David has been left to handle the fallout alone because Lily (Brooke Malonie) and Shona are in London. The following week, after finding that Max had been attacked in the STC, David gets drunk in Victoria Garden.
David approaches Maria (Samia Longchambon) after being seen by her, but ultimately leans in for a drunken kiss.
Later, Gary (Mikey North) walks into the bar and tells Shona everything, making her feel utterly ashamed.
Shona informs David that she is leaving him when she returns home.
The following day, a dejected David confesses Shona’s departure to Gail (Helen Worth).
Will Maria’s assurance that David’s inebriated pass was meaningless convince Shona to give him another chance when she finds Shona in the meantime?
