The Platts were told to move out as their home was deemed unsuitable and with nowhere to live, Ray stepped-in to offer them a room at one of his hotels in Manchester.
In one of tonight's (Monday 14 September 2020) episodes, David visited Ray at Viaduct Bistro to thank him for the generous hospitality.
Having a conversation, David asked what Ray was getting out of this arrangement. Ray reminded him of the trouble he had with Michelle Connor. Ray went on to explain that he wants people to see that he is a nice man despite what others may think and hopes his gesture towards The Platts will garner more customers to his Mawdesley Street restaurant.
David became skeptical and couldn't believe his ears, but with Ray being the one responsible for the mess in David's garden, why is Ray being so nice to The Platts all of a sudden?
Coronation Street continues this Wednesday on ITV/STV.
