8 Coronation Street is the residence of the Platt family. It was first seen when Maurice Jones built the new properties on the site of the former factory and community centre. In 1991 newly weds Martin Platt and Gail Platt bought the house for £38,000 and moved in with their children Nick, Sarah and David.
Nick moved away from Weatherfield in 1999 and by 2001 Gail was living there with her children after splitting from Martin. It later became a home to later husbands, such as Richard Hillman and Joe McIntyre. In 2013 David and his wife Kylie became the new owners of the house when Gail had lost her money to conman Lewis Archer, and her Audrey Roberts (also Lewis's former girlfriend) helped by lending them the money.
In March 2003 Richard Hillman attempted to gas Gail along with the children after being outed as a murderer. After being caught out, he drove off with them in the car en-route to Weatherfield Canal where he drove them in. Richard perished, however Gail and the children survived.
In March 2008 (and coincidentally on the 5th anniversary of Richard Hillman's death) David pushed Gail down the stairs in frustration when he discovered that she'd persuaded his girlfriend Tina McIntyre to have his child aborted. Gail survived, and after pleading guilty to several charges of criminal damage and assault during a rampage on the street, David was sentenced to four months at Larchfield Young Offenders Institute.
In September 2015, the family's rival Callum Logan (who was the biological father of Max) attacked his ex-girlfriend Sarah Platt when she attempted to entrap him by recording a confession of his dodgy dealings and threat of blackmail. Kylie returned home during the struggle and in panic grabbed a wrench and hit Callum over the head, killing him instantly. David helped them conceal Callum's body in a manhole in the garage which was later concreted over during conversion work.
