In upcoming episodes of Coronation Street, a struggling David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) will kiss Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon).
This will happen after David finds out his son, Max (Paddy Bever) has been attacked while in prison.
Max was arrested a few weeks ago after a teenager called Blake (Adam Little) told the police that Max’s propaganda videos inspired him to go on a stabbing spree at Speed Daal.
Viewers will know that Max was groomed and manipulated by extremism gang leader Griff (Michael Condron) and now, he believes he needs to spend time behind bars to face the consequences for his actions.
This, of course, has put David in an incredibly difficult position, but with Shona (Julia Goulding) in London with Lily (Brooke Malonie), he finds support in the wrong place.
David kissing Maria has left us wondering what the future will hold for Shona and Julia, who is on maternity leave after the birth of her second child.
Fortunately, because of the strong relationship David and Shona have, she sees it as something worth saving, as Julia Goulding explained:
‘Every time Shona’s away, David tries to get off with someone else!’, she told Inside Soap Magazine.
‘The Shona of old would have [left David and the family], because she is more cutthroat. But Shona and David have been through so much together and she really loves the kids; she quite likes the life she has.
‘She sees that as something worth saving — you do when you grow up, don’t you? You don’t pack your bags half as much when you have a row. From Shona’s point of view, there’s no point laying the blame at Maria’s door, which I think is really nice’.
‘It shows female solidarity, rather than a woman immediately blaming the other woman.’
