Show bosses have previously revealed the pair will have a second wedding as they vowed the couple’s love story will have a happy ending.
Corrie’s showrunner Iain MacLeod warns that while it will be a “bumpy road”, all hope is not lost and there is light at the end of the tunnel for the duo.
He said: “It’s not love at first sight when she sees him – for his part, David’s challenge is to make her fall back in love with him.

They have been battling through since Shona lost her memory after being victim of a shooting
“But she’s also a different proposition too so he also has to fall back in love with her. Nobody has a long term desire to split them up so they will have a happy ending.”
MacLeod, who has produced the soap since 2018, described the plot as a “a very unique and emotionally complicated story.”
He added: “At the bottom of it all is a love story really, they’re like cheese and crackers – none are good without the other.”
Coronation Street airs the scenes in an hour long special on tonight at 7pm on ITV.
