Spoilers: Corrie boss confirms that Shona has changed forever
Shona Ramsey’s (Julia Goulding) life changed forever in Coronation Street when she was shot and left with a brain injury that has meant she has forgotten her recent memories – including her soulmate David Platt (Jack P Shepherd).
As Shona has tried to recover and get back to normal, it has been a long journey and will continue to be as she strives to fall back in love with her husband.
And what’s more, fans are getting used to a ‘new’ Shona, who is more blunt and tactless, which can be a long term symptom of having a brain injury.
Show boss Iain MacLeod has promised an uplifting ending for Shona and David but has warned that Shona won’t fully get back to normal as that would be a disservice to those suffering with similar injuries.
The producer explained: ‘There is a hopeful start to a resolution for David and Shona – new Shona may find love for David and vice versa. We wanted it to be unusual and two people falling in love together again after becoming strangers.
‘There is a happy ending – it will be resolving around Christmas and I am really pleased with the story.
‘New Shona is filterless, is abrupt and brutal and we will retain a lot of that going forward. My mum had a serious head injury in my teens – it can permanently shift your personality – not necessarily in a damaging heinous way but it means people have to get to know you again so it would be dishonest to just hit reset.’
