Coronation Street fans will soon be in for a wedding like none other, as actor Jack P. Shepherd, who plays David, has hinted at he and girlfriend Shona (Julia Goulding) will be tying the knot in upcoming months.
However, their big day could be set for devastation if Shona’s killer son Clayton shows up.
Viewers will remember Clayton murdered David’s late wife Kylie and it was later revealed, Shona was Clayton’s mother.
After their relationship was nearly broken by the revelation, they have managed to move past it and David recently proposed.
But will the impending wedding mean a shock return from Clayton?
Speaking to the Inside Soap Yearbook, Jack said: “I would like to see Shona and David get hitched soon.
“But I don’t want any of this bistro wedding nonsense! Everyone’s done it.
“If we do it, I want it to be a proper church and then a big do at a stately home,” the actor explained.
However, he did suggest the wedding and indeed relationship won’t go smoothly.
“Are David and Shona rock solid now? There’s no such thing in Weatherfield!” he laughed.
“They’ve been through a lot but the fact her son killed David’s wife is always going to be in the background,” Jack added.
Although Clayton is currently serving a long prison sentence, it seems he will also overshadow David and Shona’s relationship.
Nevertheless, it isn’t the only potential turmoil the Street will be facing, as Lewis Archer (Nigel Havers) is on his way out.
The soap recently confirmed his character to be the one who will be killed off over New Year.
Whilst those scenes will be dark, Jack assured Metro.co.uk there would be plenty of lighter storylines to even the load.
“Everything has got to be more light and fun,” he revealed.
“Everyone tells me how funny David is…there are lots of David quips coming.”
The “lighter” storyline will be relief for David after his heartbreaking year, which saw him raped by Josh Tucker (Ryan Clayton).
Whilst fans know Josh will not receive a criminal sentence, they know he will receive alternative punishment from David.
Could the recent reappearance of Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) suggest he too will be involved when Josh returns?
Coronation Street returns tomorrow night at 7.30pm on ITV.
