The Sun exclusively revealed how David and Josh would come face -to-face again last month.
And David – who’s played by Jack P Shepherd in the ITV soap – is set to take bloody revenge on the man who almost destroyed his life during a riot in the prison.
David is set to stab Josh during the melee, while his family watch the drama unfold on the news as police surround the prison.
David manages to call fiancée Shona Ramsay and tells her that Josh has been stabbed and it doesn’t look like he’ll pull through.
But when Shona quizzes David about the stabbing, he doesn’t answer when she asks him if he did it.
Josh raped David back in March last year in one of Corrie’s most shocking storylines under former boss, Kate Oates.
The villain was seen slipping date-rape drug GHB into David’s drink during a lads’ night out.
Twisted Josh then lured David back to his flat where he dragged him into the bedroom.
The rape wasn’t shown on screen, but chilling shots of Josh pushing David face down on the bed while he unbuckled his belt left fans horrified.
Over 200 complaints were made to telly watchdog, Ofcom, following the traumatising scenes. They were later dismissed and Jack won a British Soap Award for his portrayal of David.
