'Coronation Street's Kylie Turner has a ''real connection'' with David Platt and thinks the hairdresser can be her ''meal ticket'' to a better life
'Coronation Street's Kylie Turner thinks David Platt is her "meal ticket" to a better life.
The couple - played by Paula Lane and Jack P. Shepherd - are set to stun the rest of Weatherfield when they announce their engagement following a holiday romance, and while Paula admits there is a "real connection" between the pair, one of her alter ego's major motivations is believing the bad boy crimper owns his own salon.
Paula said: "There's a real connection there. They're quite similar and, of course, Kylie thinks David might be a bit of a meal ticket as he's told hr he owns a hairdressing salon in Weatherfield.
"I don't think Kylie has ever imagined any man would ever ask her to marry him. She sees this as a chance to better herself."
Though Kylie is furious when she finds out David actually works for his gran Audrey (Sue Nicholls), she still has hopes that her lover will one day inherit the business, particularly after a client dies in the hairdressing chair.
Paula added: "She slaps David and calls him 'Phony and Guy'. She's angry but she still sees an opportunity for herself. She's got big idea for the salon and can see one day it will be David's.
"Kylie isn't there when the client dies, but she knows Audrey starts thinking about the future of the business. Kylie wants it to go to David so she can make her mark on the place."
