Coronation Street hints David Platt goes to prison as his family celebrate without him

Coronation Street has dropped a huge hint David Platt is going back to prison.

Nick was the one who stole the money originally with con woman Natalie's help, but when David found out he didn't force him to give it back - he blackmailed him into funding his dreams of owning his own barber shop.

The brothers have both since turned on each other after Audrey reported them to the police.

David has told the truth but Nick has insisted on trying to put all the blame on David - even roping in girlfriend Leanne Battersby to do his dirty work.

Posting a picture from the week's filming on Twitter as a Saturday Sneak Peek, the ITV soap has revealed David's daughter Lily's birthday party and there's one person missing.

Does it mean David has been banged up? Fans certainly noticed his absence. One said: "Where is David? Lily is his daughter and Shona is his fiancee."

A second asked simply: "Where is David?"
