Coronation Street producer teases Shona and David future

Coronation Street producer teases Shona and David future
Coronation Street producer Iain MacLeod hints at what's to come for Shona and David as she makes a long-awaited return to the cobbles.

Coronation Street producer Iain MacLeod has revealed that Shona (Julia Goulding) will still not recognise David (Jack P Shepherd) when she returns to the cobbles.

Shona slipped into a coma after being shot during the winter wonderland massacre and, upon waking, had no memory of her husband or his family - mistaking David's son Max for her own son Clayton.

The cafe worker transferred to a Leeds rehab facility and eventually ordered David to stop visiting her and told him she wants a divorce, but for reasons yet unknown makes a return to Weatherfield in upcoming episodes.

"It's not love at first sight when she sees him – for his part, David's challenge is to make her fall back in love with him," MacLeod said in a press call this week. "But she's also a different proposition too so he also has to fall back in love with her.

"Nobody has a long term desire to split them up so they will have a happy ending. They're like cheese and crackers – none are good without the other. But it's a very unique and emotionally complicated story.

"What we want to do is ensure that it feels like a love story so we need some kind of warm ending - or a confetti moment for the audience to punch the air with joy."

Coronation Street continues Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
