Coronation Street: Kirsty-Leigh Porter Is David Platt’s New Girlfriend


For a boy so creepy, David Platt sure does land some top quality totty. The geeky looking teenager is due to hook up again, and ITV have announced that his newest love interest will be played by Kirsty-Leigh Porter.

David will meet Zoe (played by Kirsty-Leigh) while washing her hair at his nan’s salon. He will invite her to a party in a bid to make his ex, Tina, jealous but will end up falling for her.

Kirsty-Leigh, told the soap’s official website: “I’m absolutely delighted. Me and my family have been lifelong Corrie fans and – if [it's] possible – I think my mum is even more excited than I am!

She added: “I can’t wait to start working with Jack [P. Shepherd] and the rest of the cast.”

The actress has previously appeared in The Street, Doctors and Ashes to Ashes.
