Under questioning about Audrey’s money, David shops Nick…
With the ugly truth now revealed – that Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) stole Audrey’s inheritance and David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) helped him to spend it – it’s time for the consequences in Coronation Street.
But as the guilt-ridden brothers try to talk round their disgusted loved ones, David must decide whether to accept Nick’s offer – he wants David to take all the blame, in exchange for sole ownership of their barbershop.
Nick’s desperate to hear David’s decision, but there’s no time to sort it out as the police arrive and arrest them this evening!
When questioned by the cops, David’s informed his brother has put him in the firing line, and he doesn’t hesitate to expose his culpable sibling.
Later, released and at the barbershop, the brothers are having an almighty row when Gail turns up. Despite her part in Audrey’s pain – having insisted that her mum’s now dead ex, Lewis, actually stole her money – Gail dares to ask her mother to drop the charges against her sons.
Deeply torn, Audrey is given food for thought by old friend Ken, who’s no stranger to family treachery…
“For her, it is not even about the money. It’s more that they both allowed her to think that Lewis, the man she loved, had done this to her,” says Sue Nicholls, who plays Audrey. “You can repay money but they can never give back to her the fact they ruined the name of the person she really loved. She is devastated.”
As Ken counsels his friend to forgive, what will conflicted Audrey decide to do?
Coronation Street is on at 7.30pm and 8.30pm tonight.
