Shona (played by Julia Goulding) seemed to be out of the danger zone after being shot by Derek Milligan (Craige Els) during Coronation Street’s festive episodes, but later took a turn for the worse when an internal bleed left her in a comatose state. David (Jack P Shepherd) has been by her side throughout the harrowing ordeal and has done everything in his power to reject the idea his wife could die. Upcoming scenes on the ITV soap will see the cafe worker brought out of her current state, but it seems her memory has been greatly affected by her condition.
The drama unfolds as doctors remove Shona’s breathing tubes from the aids currently keeping her alive, to which she responds well as she is able to breathe on her own.
Hoping the next step will be his wife regaining consciousness, David plays all manner of environmental noises she is familiar with to try and wake her.
It seems the plan will have some response as his beloved flickers her eyes, with doctor’s telling the barber the cafe worker is coming out of her coma.
However, heartbreak strikes when it’s clear the traumatised character has no idea who her husband is, placing the seeds for a devastating amnesia plot.

David’s heart is ripped apart by his wife’s initial response and it becomes harder for him when she fully comes to, still having no idea who he is.
Speaking with the medical professionals, Shona’s husband is told her memory has been severely affected by the trauma and it could take a year for any improvement to happen.
Hoping to kick start her recovery, the barber brings his step-son Max Turner (Harry McDermott) and daughter Lily Platt (Brooke Malonie) to visit their step-mother.
Her beloved is left further devastated when she mistakes the young school boy as her own child, Clayton Hibbs (Callum Harrison).
