Shona Ramsey (Julia Goulding) is heading home to Coronation Street but when things get too much and she is unable to recognise her surroundings or anyone around her – including son David (Jack P Shepherd), she freaks out and disappears out of the back door – but is she walking into serious danger?
Shona lost a huge amount of her memories following a brain injury last year and she has completely forgotten about her marriage to David and subsequently asked him for a divorce.
But Iain MacLeod has assured fans that there could be a happy ending in store. He told Metro.co.uk: ‘At the bottom of it all is a love story really – it’s interesting to see two characters who have been in love for years have to fall in love all over again when one has had a brain damage that has changed their personality.
‘They work best as sparky and funny so there will be comedy but her feelings are absent and there’s no emotional attachment – it will be a bumpy road. It’s not love at first sight when she sees him – for his part, David’s challenge is to make her fall back in love with him. But she’s also a different proposition too so he also has to fall back in love with her.
‘Nobody has a long term desire to split them up so they will have a happy ending. They’re like cheese and crackers – none are good without the other. But it’s a very unique and emotionally complicated story.’
He even hinted at a second wedding, adding: ‘It’s certainly been discussed – that’s the most poignant thing about it. To Shona the wedding pictures she has been shown are just two strangers dancing in the bistro.
‘What we want to do is ensure that it feels like a love story so we need some kind of warm ending – or a confetti moment for the audience to punch the air with joy.’
That seems like a way off for now though – as a search is launched for missing Shona, things may get a lot worse before they get better…
