Coronation Street couple David and Kylie Platt – played by West Yorkshire actors Jack Shepherd and Paula Lane – are at the centre of a dramatic soap storyline when Kylie dies suddenly.
With Tony Stewart in the frame for Callum’s murder it looks as though David, Kylie and Sarah are off the hook. However Kylie is uncomfortable about letting an innocent dead man take the wrap for a crime she committed and suggests the family leave Weatherfield once and for all and put the events of the past year behind them.
But their excitement and future plans are cut short by Kylie’s unexpected death.
The details of how Kylie dies are being kept under wraps so viewers can watch the events unfold on screen.
Paula Lane, from Hebden Bridge, who plays opposite Jack Shepherd, from Pudsey, said: “It was very emotional to film the scenes knowing that I would never return and her death has huge consequences for David and all the family.”
