Coronation Street’s Gail McIntyre is set to offer Kylie Turner £1,000 in cash, if she doesn’t marry her son David Platt.
The concerned mother – played by Helen Worth – acts on a suggestion made by her eldest son Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) and bribes the Weatherfield newcomer not to go through with her wedding ceremony.
In an interview with InsideSoap, Paula Lane, who plays Kylie admits that Kylie is shocked by the lengths Gail will go to in order to stop the nuptials.
Paula said: “Kylie’s got no idea until her hen night how determined Gail Is to stop the wedding.
“Gail finds her outside the bistro, and that’s when it suddenly hits Kylie that Gail wants rid of her for good.
“Kylie’s been playing the game with Gail but there’s a lot of hostility between them. Gail’s just not on Kylie’s radar though – compared to Becky, she’s easy competition.”
Gail decides to take action after a row escalates between her and David (Jack P. Shepherd) when he walks in on her begging her mother Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) not to sign paperwork that would mean David inherited her salon.
Paula added: “When David walks in on Gail trying to persuade Audrey not to sign over the business, he lets rip at his mum for trying to ruin his future. It’s a massive row.
“Nick also reckons Kylie is a gold-digger so he thinks she can be paid off. Gail feels a bit uneasy at the idea of bribery, but finds Kylie and tells her that if she leaves town for good, she’ll get the cash.”
With Kylie then late for her own wedding, fans are left wondering if she’s accepted Gail’s offer or if she and David will upset his relatives and finally make it down the aisle.
