The Platt family are set for an unhappy Christmas in Coronation Street, as the Sun newspaper reports that Kylie will cheat on David on Boxing Day with a one night stand.
Fans of the award-winning ITV soap will know how David (Jack P Shepherd) and his feisty wife, Kylie (Paula Lane) are currently experiencing a rough patch in their marriage after the revelation that Kylie was still taking the pill, despite telling David they could start trying for a family.
When Kylie eventually came clean about her lies, David reacted in, well typical David style really, getting bladdered and winding people up. His narky attitude landed him a pint in the face from ex-girlfriend, Tina (Michelle Keegan), but showing a much more mature side of him, David went round to Tina’s flat afterwards to apologise.
The pair had a real heart to heart, and for a minute it looked like there might have even been a spark of the old flame, but they controlled themselves, and David ended up falling asleep on the sofa, leaving us all wondering just what Kylie’s reaction will be in tonight’s show when she realises her husband has stayed out all night (He should compare notes with Ken Barlow on how to avoid such situations in future!).
Whether she forgives him or not, it is not the last drama this couple will face before the end of the year, as Kylie is set to stray on Boxing Day, and sleep with an unnamed assailant.
Show bosses are keeping the identity of Kylie’s lover top secret, but Paula Lane, who plays Kylie in the hit show has revealed to Radio Times that her character will definitely live to regret her actions:
“She falls into bed with another man because the one person she has given herself to for the past two years, and built up a great marriage with, has completely let her down.”
The actress goes on to explain how the next morning she realises the mistake she has made, and that it’s David she really wants:
“That feeling of, ‘Oh no, what have we done?’ The person in question is very good at talking her round saying, ‘Let’s forget it happened’. But Kylie feels so guilty.
“It’s going to be hard for her to move on from this.
“As soon as she sees David after the one-night stand, she knows that he’s the person she wants to be with.”
