CORONATION STREET favourite Shona Platt has been taking a backseat from the drama on the ITV soap recently but a new theory by Express.co.uk suggests she could end up becoming one of the most successful business people on the cobbles.
After being shot on Coronation Street at the end of 2019, Shona (played by Julia Goulding) has been working to put her life back together. Although she is not the same person, Shona is unquestionably a part of the Platt family. Despite their recent arguments, Audrey Roberts (Sue Nicholls) and Stephen Reid appear to be the only people siding with the matriarch (Todd Boyce). With this in mind, Audrey might make a significant gesture to express her gratitude to Shona for all of the support she has provided her on the ITV soap opera.
The Platt family was celebrating Audrey’s birthday at the start of Friday night’s show, but she didn’t seem to want to be there.
Shona was eager to join the celebration as the rest of the family planned their apology to their grandma for berating her about their fortune.
Shona was making infantile guesses as to what the Platts’ surprise for Audrey may be, speculating that it might involve skydiving.
The family drove Audrey back to her favorite salon, where she felt on top of the world, after they had all completed dining at the restaurant.It was discovered that the Platts had redecorated it and wanted Audrey to reopen the business after being unobserved for more than two years.
When the blindfold was taken off her eyes, she said, “It’s my old salon,” to which Gail Platt (Helen Worth) replied, “It’s not old any more.”
“We are taking back the lease from Debbie [Webster]. The paperwork is complete and ready for signature “Ben Price’s Nick Tilsley explained.
The family realized Audrey wasn’t herself at the time, and Gail said to her mother, “We believed it would give you a new sense of purpose.”
Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien) said, “Got all your old equipment,” to which her grandma replied, “Which hasn’t been used for over a year.”Shona said, “It’s not as good as sky jumping,” when David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) indicated that everything had been tested and was in working order.
Audrey was shocked to learn that her family was still attempting to convey to her how well they had performed in order to make amends to her.
“I can’t blame you for being startled,” Nick told his grandma. “We busted a gut trying to keep it a secret.”
“Well, I must say that I thought it was a quite sweet gesture. They know what rat bags they’ve been lately, so they wanted to make it up to you, Audrey added, adding: “So thank you everybody.”
Audrey announced she was going home since she needed to get some sleep when Gail suggested they go back to the restaurant to celebrate.
She did, however, return home, and the following time viewers saw her, she was lying in a hospital bed.and misrepresenting her location to her daughter.
