While Shona Ramsey is left stunned by the news that her son, Clayton Hibbs, has been brutally attacked in prison and might die, David Platt is off celebrating the news.
Shona overhears Faye Windass telling Phelan that there has been a vicious brawl at the young offenders’ institute and that Clayton has been left fighting for his life in hospital.
Shone rushes out, but David – who lost his wife Kylie when Clayton pulled a knife on her – heads to the Rovers to celebrate.
Later, Shona finds a very drunk David sitting on the cobbles in the exact place where Kylie died. The young mum, reaches out to him as she realises just how affected he is by Clayton’s actions.
But as she tries to comfort grief-stricken David, will she reveal the truth about being Clayton’s mum?
Viewers were left reeling last month when it was revealed that mysterious newcomer Shona was actually Clayton’s mum.
Julia Goulding, who plays Shona said of the big secret: “Well, as is quite well known in soap, secrets don’t stay secret for very long do they?
The reason she is not telling the truth about who she is, is that it has got so far now that she knows the repercussions of coming clean would just be huge.
She is finally settled in this community got herself a job and friendships. But I personally thinks she should, it’s always better to tell the truth.”
Is Shona ready to face those huge repercussions? And will Clayton survive?
