And on Friday night, he was seen picking another fight with a stranger on his way to the tram stop and it seems like David has a death wish.

Judging by his reaction to the excitement of pursuing trouble, it looks like David is on for months of this new behaviour.

In Friday night's episode David barged into a much bigger man who soon backed down when he looked into David's eyes but the scene has given a taste of the darkness ahead for David.

He has been struggling since his wife Shona lost her memory and asked for a divorce but this new deadly David is his new way of coping.

It comes as actor Jack P. Shepherd celebrated being on the cobbles for 20 years this week.

Jack shared some pictures from his life before the soap, showing throwbacks to his toddler and school years.

He also shared highlights of David, which included his bunny Barney, sharing a kiss with Tracy Barlow and a scene with girlfriend/stepsister Tina McIntyre.

Jack also included David's tougher moments which included being kidnapped by Richard Hillman, saying goodbye to wife Kylie, who was murdered and the shower scene when David broke down after being raped by Josh Tucker.

HOW DID JACK CELEBRATE 20 YEARS PLAYING DAVID?

Jack captioned the post: "Today marks my 20th year anniversary playing the role of David Platt.

"Here's a few photos of my life before I got the part and a few highlights of my character. Thank you @coronationstreet for everything."
