David Platt and his mother Gail (Helen Worth) are set to bid farewell to their home at No. 8 on the street in emotional scenes set to air on Monday’s double-bill.
The Platts have lived at the house for decades, but have been forced to make the difficult decision to leave the iconic street after Ray Crosby manipulated David (Jack P. Shepherd) into selling him the property last year.
David sold the house after Ray (Mark Frost) convinced him to do so when he couldn’t afford to fix a sinkhole that had appeared in their back garden.
