A panicked David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) is to abscond with his kids after growing increasingly scared that Callum (Sean Ward) will get custody of Max.
With drug dealer Callum determined to insinuate himself at the Platts’, David feels he has little choice but to flee with the children in tow. But Nick (Ben Price) and Sarah (Tina O’Brien) are worried to discover that the kids’ passports have also been taken, while Callum is fuming when he learns about what’s happened.
Then, in scenes to be shown on Friday 8 May, David will be seen calling Gail (Helen Worth) assuring her they’re fine, but admitting that he can’t return home and risk losing Max.
But as David kills the call, he’s horrified to realise that Max has disappeared. As David searches the streets in vain for Max, the young lad is seen alone in the city pulling out his mobile and making a call. But who is he contacting?
