Clayton's past forgotten

But despite Clayton's horrible history, viewers want him to stick around on the cobbles for a while and become a regular on the show.

In a clip posted to Coronation Street's Twitter account for tonight's episode (Monday, March 23) it shows David going to visit Clayton in prison.

David tells Clayton to keep away from Shona, but Clayton loves seeing David miserable and makes it clear he'll be staying in contact with his mum.

Although fans of the show know exactly what Clayton is like, they want him to be a regular.

One tweeted: "If Tracy Barlow, the murderer, can be a regular on the street then why can't Clayton?"

Another tweeted an excited gif which said: "Yes!"

A third fan also appeared excited for the character's return and begged for it to be permanent.

Viewers know Clayton, David and Shona all have a complicated history.

What did Clayton do?

Clayton went to prison for killing David's first wife Kylie.

David started a relationship with Shona before she knew who she was.

When David found out the truth he tried to cut ties with her.

However the pair decided to make things work.

Last year, Shona went to visit Clayton when she found out his dad had died. But at the funeral, where Clayton was let out on day release, he escaped.

He later took Shona hostage and she was forced to stab her son to get free. Shona then disowned him.

Shona was shot on Christmas Day and she went into a coma.

When she woke up, the only person she could remember was Clayton.

With Shona refusing to see David, it means Clayton has been able to fill her head with all sorts of misinformation.

Will she ever remember David and her life with him?
