Speaking to the Radio Times, actress Julia Goulding who plays Shona revealed that the character really thinks this is the end for her.

She said: “She truly believes that’s it, game over. It’s bonkers because she can’t quite believe this is happening.

“She tired, she hasn’t slept in 24 hours, she’s been there all night, her head is all over the place and she’s not thinking straight.

“But she absolutely, 100% believes that Clayton is going to kill her.”

The drama begins for Shona when Clayton makes a break for freedom while at the funeral of his drug-dealing dad, Dane.

Although under police escort, Clayton’s brother Macca attacks the guards and the troubled youth runs off.

As news hits the cobbles the Platts all suggest to Shona’s boyfriend David Platt, played by Jack P Shepherd, that she might have had something to do with it.

After his wife Kylie was killed by Clayton, the father-of-two is terrified he will come back to hurt them so takes the family to his brother Nick’s.

Trying to help her son and get him to turn himself in, Shona goes to see Clayton in the abandoned building where he’s hiding out.

Julia revealed in the interview: “Shona has taken money from David’s savings tin and met up with Clayton in an abandoned building because she wants to be the positive light for her son and begs him to hand himself in.

“But when Clayton tries to escape he realises the place is surrounded by police. He feels he has no choice but to hold Shona hostage and threatens to kill her if the police don’t mean his demands.”

The highly charged scenes are due to air from 4 March and Julia admits it was actually scary at times.

She said: “It was really scary because when I came out and there’s all the police and the cars, it really got me in the zone.

“We had police officers on set to advise what would happen in that situation in real life which helped.”
