Coronation Street star Paula Lane has revealed that her character Kylie Platt's pregnancy will delight her husband David.

Warning: Spoiler alert!

Next week on the soap Kylie discovers that she is expecting a baby, however, due to her recent one-night stand with David's half brother Nick Tilsley, she is unsure who the father is.

Unaware of her unfaithfullness, David (Jack P Shepherd) is ecstatic when he finds Kylie's positive pregnancy test in the bin. This comes after Nick (Ben Price) has convinced Kylie to have an abortion.

Lane said to All About Soap: "I think her marriage means more to her than the pregnancy, so she's trying to paper over the cracks. Her marriage and Max have to come first, so she thinks an abortion is the best option.

"[But David] finds the positive pregnancy test and he's just ecstatic. He can't believe it and practically tells everybody in the street."

When Eva Price (Catherine Tyldesley) informs David that his wife is at the abortion clinic, he rushes over to confront her.

Labe added: "Kylie's horrified. She thinks he shouldn't be there and it totally throws her. It highlights just how much she's hurt David.

"She claims she's scared about being left on her own with two kids if it all goes wrong. She's desperate and saying anything she can think of to rescue her marriage. She gives him every excuse under the sun as to why they shouldn't have this baby, but he insists they can make it work."
