    I would have thought that Julia Goulding has been there long enough to have had this touching faith knocked out of her.

    I think only the storylines where Pat Phelan is involved are ...ummm... well.. absurd, farcical, ludicrous etc, but the major stories with David (Kylie's death and his grief), Bethany's grooming story were well done and I am sure that Jack will do a good job of this forthcoming storyline .. occasionally they get things right, sadly not often these days

    I wish that they had kept quiet about this storyline for a while. They told us before he even started on the street!

    Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd has spoken about David Platt's male rape storyline for the first time.

    The ITV soap airs one of its darkest ever plots next week as David is sexually assaulted by his boxing coach Josh Tucker (Ryan Clayton) after a night out.

    Soap fans have known about the story since late last year, but the full details have been announced today (March 6) ahead of broadcast next week.

    In Coronation Street's double bill on Friday, March 16, Josh spikes David's drink while on a night out and later takes him back to his flat.

    David wakes up the next morning in Josh's bed and although the mechanic has already left, a traumatised David starts to remember what happened to him the night before.

    Struggling to come to terms with what's happened, David then wrestles with a difficult decision over whether to report the crime to the police or not.

    He also keeps his ordeal secret from his family and friends, who grow increasingly worried when they notice him acting strangely in the weeks that follow.

    Corrie producer Kate Oates and her team have worked on the storyline with help from local charity Survivors Manchester and its founder Duncan Craig, who also previously consulted on male rape storylines in Channel 4's Hollyoaks.

    Speaking about the storyline, Jack explained: "David thinks he has made a new friend in Josh. He hasn't really ever had a male friend and no male role models, because his dad is not around and Nick has moved away.

    "He's been trying to impress Josh with his training for the fight and he is enjoying his company. He has no reason to think Josh is anything other than a mate.

    "When I was told about the storyline, Kate Oates and I met with Duncan from Survivors Manchester and that was when I realised the gravity and significance of the storyline. David's reaction and decision to remain quiet because he feels ashamed about what has happened is not uncommon.

    "Hopefully people will start talking about the storyline and it could help someone who has gone through something similar to realise the need to open up and speak to somebody."

    Kate Oates added: "We decided to cover the topic of male rape to help try and highlight the culture of silence that surrounds male sexual assault, and issues surrounding male mental health in general.

    "Survivors Manchester have been so generous with their time and knowledge, working with Jack, Ryan and the team, and I'm in awe of the work they do.

    "Over the next few weeks of Corrie, our message is to talk: it's hard to speak out, but if you're suffering in silence, there are people out there willing to listen and support you."

    Coronation Street airs these scenes on Friday, March 16 at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.

    Survivors Manchester is available to support adult male survivors of sexual abuse and rape. Its website can be found at www.survivorsmanchester.org.uk and its helpline is 0161 236 2182. Local support agencies for all male and female survivors can be found at www.thesurvivorstrust.org. In an emergency, please dial 999.

    How Low can Corra go!!!

    I found this very disturbing and before the Watershed hour.
    What is going on with Corra now, what ever happened to the innocent story lines that Corra used to have?

    I remember the Deidre and Mike Storyline and found it a "must see" time, proper acting and no crime, just what can actually happen to anyone, and
    stories that most people can relate to.

    I get that Corra is trying to bring things to the viewers, but we have just had the Bethany, sleazy sicking story, still got Pat and now this, must be honest I don't know of one person
    who has suffered any of these situations. I honestly don't think enough people have this happen and Corra would be better focussing on more topics people are familiar.

    David Platt will go off the rails following his harrowing rape ordeal at the hands of Josh Tucker in Coronation Street – and Metro.co.uk can reveal that he will sleep with a young newcomer after ending his relationship with Shona Ramsey in a bid to prove his masculinity. David will continue to bottle up his ordeal from his loved ones and his behaviour over the coming weeks will leave them baffled as Coronation Street continues the exploration of his deteriorating mental health. And when the salon takes on a new recruit, he takes drastic action. Audrey Roberts’ 19-year-old new intern Emma (played by Alexandra Mardell) is proving pretty inept at her job but while David is initially frosty with her, things suddenly take a turn and he spends the night with her.
