He said: “It becomes a story about Shona and her son and throws into question David and Shona’s relationship.

“Clayton has been locked up and it provides the biggest challenge to David and Shona’s relationship since the Josh story.”

Iain added: “We have explored some of this before but not in as much detail.

“The fact that David is in love with the mother of the boy who killed the love of his life is so huge and it’s a ripe area for us to explore.

“It’ll ultimately become quite gritty, that will kick off relatively early in the year and play right the way through for the next few months afterwards.”

Sounds like there’s more drama for the Platts coming! Poor David!
