It’s been a brutal month on the cobbles, but it seems there’s going to be even more drama involving all the characters on the Street.

We’ve broken down the trailer for you with all the storylines we’re going to be gripped to in the coming weeks…

David risks his life

David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) has a habit of going on the path to self-destruction when something isn’t going his way. But in the new May trailer, it seems he might actually put himself in real danger this time. For no reason at all, David makes his way to a dodgy estate, and provokes some residents causing them to chase him. Police officer Craig spots the whole thing and seems to give him a good telling off, but will the words sink in? Or is this the start of a dangerous route for David?

Yasmeen heads to court

Poor Yasmeen Metcalfe (Shelley King) hit breaking point at the beginning of May when she stabbed villainous abuser Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) in the neck. But, she’s going to pay for her actions – unlike Geoff – when she heads to court for her crimes. Granddaughter Alya says it’s a “nightmare” and honestly, it is. How will she prove her innocence?

Geoff turns the tables

Asha’s woes continue

Following the leak of her intimate pictures, Asha Alahan (Tanisha Gorey) has been a shell of herself. And it seems like her woes won’t be ending anytime soon as she can be seen in the trailer confronted with a group of teenage boys, probably about to wind her up. It looks like one resident in particular has had enough and makes a stand… but who will Asha’s ally be? And will she ever be free of her torment?
