Julia Goulding has spoke about Shona’s plight
Corrie actress Julia Goulding has reveal why her character needs to see Clayton.
She said: "Her mothering instinct kicks in and she just needs to get to her baby and break the news to him that his dad has died, so it’s not an easy job.
"Yes it’s exactly that, he’s an absolute mess and all her instincts as a mother completely kick in and it’s heartbreaking for her to see. She just wants to do anything she can to help him."
On revealing she’s visited Clayton to David, Julia added: "Absolutely she’s worried about telling David she’s been to visit him, they’ve got a rule that they don’t talk about it so even though she doesn’t talk about it she does keep in contact with Clayton, it’s just never mentioned.
"But with such a huge betrayal at stake there with David if she does keep this is a secret that’s on her mind too."
