Coronation Street actor Christopher Harper has hinted that cafe worker Shona could be the one to bring sinister Nathan to justice.
Tanning salon owner Nathan – who is currently grooming an unsuspecting Bethany – has history with Shona, as was revealed in a recent episode of the ITV soap. Shona was seen recounting to Gail that her abusive ex-boyfriend used to burn her – but only we and not Gail realised that she was talking about Nathan.
“Nathan seems to have taken his eye off the ball where Shona is concerned,” said Harper. “We saw Shona out in the Bistro having a drink with Gail, who talked of Bethany having a boyfriend called Nathan. When Gail said that she thought he must have been about 19 years old, Shona was thinking, ‘thank God it’s not the Nathan who used to burn me with cigarettes’. But I think the clock is definitely ticking on that one.”
Speaking about where the disturbing plot is headed, the actor added: “The storyline is reaching a point where it’s becoming hard to act. There is some horrible stuff coming.”
