SHONA IN LOVE...
... but will her bond with killer son Clayton put David off a relationship?
David went ballistic when Shona returned to the cobbles last month, but he soon calmed down, and it’s pretty obvious why. As much as he wants to despise the mother of Kylie’s killer, the truth is, he fancies the pants off her.
As we move into autumn, the crimper will give into his feelings and embark on a relationship with Shona, even though Gail disapproves and the thorny issue of Clayton continues to cast a shadow. David hates the murderous teen – but Shona loves him. And as her maternal pull remains as strong as ever, she finds herself keeping a big secret from her new boyfriend.
‘David’s going to have to come to terms with the fact that Shona is Clayton’s mum and that’s not going to change,’ says star Jack P Shepherd, who plays him. But can he? And how will he react when he discovers what Shona has done?
