David Platt’s marital woes drove him into the arms of one other girl in Coronation Avenue when he was caught cavorting with Underworld employee Alina Pop.
The shock hook-up aired on Wednesday 25th March after downbeat David received chatting and ingesting to lonely Alina in regards to the poor state of their respective love lies.
A number of cans of beer later the pair have been scorching and heavy on the couch, a lot to the consternation of Seb Franklin who was surprised to seek out his outdated flame/flatmate in flagrante and later punched Mr Platt accusing him of taking benefit.
It’s unlikely this heralds the beginning of a shock new romance on the cobbles, as Jack P Shepherd reveals: “David doesn’t have any emotions for Alina, it’s a rebound factor as a result of finally he wants to be with his spouse Shona but he’s not getting any affection from her.”
Mrs Platt is presently recovering from amnesia after being shot. She has no reminiscence of her and David’s relationship and introduced earlier this week she wants a divorce and by no means wants to see him once more.
“He’s tried and tried but he’s not getting anyplace with Shona. David is on a downward spiral so when he sees Alina in Victoria Gardens, they strike up a friendship as they’re each susceptible in that second.
“It’s an identical scenario to what occurred between David and Emma after he was raped, David seems for consolation in the incorrect locations.”
Shona’s absence has been concocted to clarify actress Julia Goulding’s real-life maternity depart (she gave start to a son in November), but she’s back on display screen in the approaching weeks and Shepherd is hoping all is just not misplaced for the pair, who tied the knot on-screen simply earlier than the Christmas capturing.
“I really like working with Julia,” he shares. “And I actually like David and Shona collectively, I feel they’ve a powerful bond. It could be a disgrace in the event that they cut up but that’s cleaning soap!
“Julia could be mortified in the event that they do find yourself divorced as a result of she loves being a Platt! David is breaking down and Shona’s rejection is actually affecting him but he’s not letting anyone in. Every part could also be misplaced except David can do one thing drastic to win Shona back.”
