Next week his mum Gain is going to realise something is amiss with his behaviour.

And when he takes himself off for a walk, Gail asks where he’s going and he refuses to tell her.

The soap has already hinted at darkness to come for David with his fights but if he hides what he’s going through then it’s set to get even worse for him.

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.

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.”
