Natalie Watkins (Cassie Bradley) has been about as subtle as Dev Alahan’s nuances when it comes to her attraction to David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) and tonight she makes her move and plants a kiss on him while they’re alone in the barber shop in Coronation Street.
With Natalie constantly flirting – and Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) wanting her kept sweet as she knows about the money theft – David has been stuck between a rock and a hard place. And when she goes for it tonight and plants the lips on him, he rejects her, reminding her that he is in love with Shona Ramsey (Julia Goulding).
However, with Nick insistent that David has to keep Natalie on side at all costs, will he be tempted when she makes an indecent proposal? And will it lead to a split for David and Shona?
Shona has already sussed that something is amiss with Natalie and can see as clearly as the rest of us that she has designs on David. ‘She’s only human,’ as David himself points out. Fair point.
Worried about them spending so much time together at the shop, Shona tries to persuade Roy Cropper (David Neilson) to go for a trim and see if he can pick up on any worrying signals. He refuses but Billy Mayhew (Daniel Brocklebank) reluctantly agrees to the task.
However, his clumsy approach to questioning David about Natalie leads David to realise how unsettled Shona is and he reiterates that she has nothing to worry about.
However, while Natalie’s kiss may have been snubbed, she still seems to be smug and hopeful that she has David exactly where she wants him. Will she make another pounce or is her confidence misguided?
And will Shona be pushed to the edge as Natalie continues to play games?
