David s big Decision
‘I would like shona to have a boyfriend,’ says Julia Goulding, who plays the troubled mum of Kylie’s killer, Clayton. ‘she’s a loner, and all of her previous relationships have been so bad and so detrimental to her own growth that it would be nice to see her with someone decent, who’d allow her to let her guard down.
‘Whether or not it’s David, who knows? If she did end up going out with him, I think it would probably be one of the most complicated relationships that the street has ever seen, because she’s never going to stop being Clayton’s mum.’
‘I think Maria and David should get together, and I keep saying that to Jack,’ says samia Longchambon, who plays the widower’s friend and salon colleague. ‘They’re quite similar in that they’ve both had their husband/wife murdered [Maria’s husband, Liam, was murdered in 2008], they’ve both got kids, and they’ve both worked in the salon all these years. They’ve grown up together and know one another inside out.
‘I think they could have fun together as well. It wouldn’t be that they got together and it would be all serious – I think it
would be lots of fun.’
