Gail finally susses David is not a perfect son
Coronation Street’s Gail Platt has put up with a lot from her son, David, over the years.
It even seems that she still feels the slightest bit of sympathy for the teenage tearaway despite showing him the door after his drugs stash left young Bethany fighting for her life in the local hospital.
However, even Gail won’t be able to recognise any redeeming features in him when his latest storyline comes to its chilling climax.
After learning that he has not been invited to the wedding of his sister Sarah and her boyfriend Jason, David – played by Jack P Shepherd – sneaks into the builder’s workplace and sabotages some scaffolding in an attempt to put off the nuptials permenantly.
David promptly confesses to the attempted-murder to his mother, though the police are unable to find enough evidence to secure a conviction.
“You’re so full of hatred – your eyes are burning with it,” Gail will tell him, a source close to the show told the Daily Star.
“I want to believe you’re not rotten to the core but I can see it in your face.”
While it is not yet known whether there will be a happy ending, what is certain is that 23-year old actress Tina O’Brien, who plays teenage mum Sarah, will be leaving towards the end of the year to seek fame and fortune away from the cobbled streets of Wetherfield.
