Coronation Street's David Platt to have new lady love?
Jack P. Shepherd has hinted his 'Coronation Street' character David Platt could have a new love interest later this year
'Coronation Street's Jack P. Shepherd has teased a new romance may be on the cards for his character this year.
The 28-year-old actor has hinted that his stylist alter-ego David Platt could nab himself a new love interest when his wife Kylie Platt (Paula Lane) leaves the Cobbles this month.
Asked if he'll miss Paula when she bows out, he said: "Yes, they're a good partnership. I've always said that. So it'll be a shame when that goes. But there might be somebody else."
But, although he'll miss the chemistry he has with the brunette beauty on-screen, Jack is convinced Paula - who is leaving to have her second child - will likely return in the near future.
He said: "As for Paula, it's not a sad thing. She wanted to leave, so it's not like they wanted to get rid of her. And obviously, she's going off to have another child and be a mother for a bit. And then she'll probably get back into it."
Meanwhile, as Jack celebrates 16 years on the soap, the handsome star is open to spreading his wings but is adamant he'll never turn his back on the show for good.
Asked if he would leave the programme temporarily to do other things, he told the Radio Times Online: "If something came about and it was too good an offer to turn down, then of course I would want to do it."
