Coronation Street is lining up a heartbreaking New Year storyline for David and Shona

Nooooo.

Coronation Street is lining up a heartbreaking New Year storyline for David and Shona, according to reports.

The couple have had more than their fair share of ups and downs over the years. But it looks like the start of 2020 is going to be bringing fresh heartbreak for the newly married pair.

Official spoilers from ITV revealed that in the Christmas Day episode, Shona plans a treasure hunt for David's birthday, in a bid to make it really special.

She plans for herself to be the prize -  but with the clues leading David and the rest of his family to Winter Wonderland, they soon find themselves in the middle of the holiday horror between Derek Milligan and Gary Windass.

And producer Iain Macleod revealed that what happens on Christmas Day will spark "a really heartbreaking and serious story for the Platts," Shona and David in particular.

"We sat down recently and realised that David has never cheated on any of his romantic partners," he told Digital Spy. "I will hasten to add, he's not really going to this time either, but their relationship is sorely and severely challenged across the whole of next year really, but the beginnings of that will be in top gear across the first month or so."

Looking towards what is going to be happening elsewhere in the cobbles in 2020, MacLeod promised that the "final chapter" of the saga involving Jade Rowan, John Stape's daughter, will play out.

He also promised that there would be a "very special episode" airing within the first two months of 2020.
