As she warns him off, he takes no notice of her whatsoever, so she leaves and calls the police on her way home.

But she doesn’t get very far before she’s jumped by two thugs, who give her a vicious beating and leave her unconscious.

She’s found battered and bruised by Craig Tinker, who gets her to hospital as quick as he can.

Once she’s awake however, she realises she needs to warn the Platts immediately, so checks herself out of hospital and rushes to the street to see David.

And what about Shona – she clearly wasn’t well enough to leave hospital as she’s back in there next week having an operation for a ruptured spleen.

As she wakes, David is by her bedside and Gail is stunned to see him give her a gentle kiss.

But later in the week he catches her at Kylie’s grave. And given Shona’s already told him about her child who went off the rails, is David about to use those brain cells of his and work out exactly who Shona is?

And what would that mean for their fledgling romance?
