DAVID Platt was left horrified in Coronation Street tonight when murderer Clayton Hibbs threatened to stab Shona to death in front of him.
Clayton previously stabbed David’s wife Kylie Platt to death in 2016, with the villain being imprisoned for his crime.
In this evening’s episode of the ITV soap, Clayton held his mum Shona hostage as he desperately tried to avoid being sent back to prison after his dramatic escape last month.
As authorities closed in on the derelict warehouse where Shona took Clayton last night, the criminal went into a panic.
Speaking to a police negotiator on the phone, the villain said that he had taken Shona hostage, with David being left stunned when authorities arrived at his house and revealed that his girlfriend is at risk.
He and Nick ran to the warehouse to try and help, but are held back by a police cordon.
While David watched on in horror, Clayton dragged Shona out of the building with a knife to her back – demanding £10,000 and a car or she will die.
The scenes bring back painful memories for troubled David, who previously held his beloved Kylie in his arms as she died following Clayton’s brutal attack.
The murderer staged a prison break earlier this week, phoning Shona for help after trying to survive by sleeping rough.
Actor Callum Harrison, who plays Clayton, previously told The Sun Online that he struggled filming tonight’s dramatic scenes because the set was haunted and the cast heard ghosts.

He said at the time: “It is a really spooky place, the place where we filmed it was on Most Haunted.
“We were doing a take and one of the assistant directors said can we stop talking in the back.
“Everyone was looking at each other like there’s nobody talking.
“But there was whispering on the mic and no-one was there. That was freaky, honestly that happened, no word of a lie, we really were like Jesus.”
