David Platt meet his new love interest Emma when she starts work at Audrey Roberts’ salon next week.
But the pair don’t get off to a particularly rosy start when David realises Maria Connor has taken on the 19-year-old apprentice.
Yet she spots that David isn’t okay when Alya Nazir bursts into the salon and reveals she has a hot date with Josh Tucker.
While Alya, Maria and Jenny gush over Josh, Emma spots that David seems distressed.
Could this connection be what draws David to Emma in coming weeks?
Corrie boss Kate Oates has already confirmed that David will sleep with the young newcomer as he attempts to prove his masculinity following his sexual assault ordeal with Josh.
Also next week, David will be raging when he discovers that mum Gail has let his kids see his ex-girlfriend Shona Ramsey behind his back.
David dumped Shona last week after she started asking awkward questions about why they weren’t having sex anymore.
Rather than reveal his tragic secret, David told a hurt Shona that he didn’t love her or fancy her anymore.
While Gail helps out Roy in the cafe, Lily and Max sneak upstairs to where Shona is living.

When David finds out he hits the roof and tells Gail she can’t look after the kids anymore if she lets them see Shona.
Later Gail confesses to Sarah that she’s worried about David and his erratic behaviour.
Better late than never, eh Gail?
