David Platt will get a shock when his ex-cellmate reappears – this time in Weatherfield.
In upcoming scenes on Coronation Street, David is horrified when Paul Foreman returns six months after they last saw each other.
David was jailed for failing to turn up to a court date after brutally beating up Gary Windass during a charity boxing fight.
Having not told anyone about his rape, David ended up losing it over rapist Josh Tucker’s taunting and took it out on Gary.
While struggling to cope in prison, David ended up lashing out at Paul .

And it looks like his memories will come flooding back when Paul turns up on David’s doorstep.
A source told The Sun Online : "David isn’t going to know what to do when he sees Paul on the cobbles.
"He and Paul got on well in prison but David doesn’t want to think about that time."
They added that David is "confused and horrified" by his reappearance.

The insider also revealed that soap bosses had been keen to bring back actor Peter Ash, who plays Paul, back after he had impressed them with his performance.
"It was a no brainer to bring him back for a longer stint," they said.
