28th March1990: All eyes were on the new "posh" side of the Street as its first residents - Des and Steph Barnes - threw a ruckus housewarming party at No.6, on the same evening that Derek and Mavis Wilton had a romantic meal after spending the rest of the day moving their things into No.4 next door. The two households got off to a bad start as the Barnes' music ruined the meal, and Derek ended up joining the party after going there to complain. Steph won a bet with Des when she lured Kevin Webster upstairs and shaved off his moustache, while the trauma of the move took its toll on one member of the Wilton family as Mavis found Harriet the budgie dead in her cage.
Kylie Platt is the wife of David and mother of Max and Lily Platt. Kylie was raised by a drug addict mother and abusive father. She resented her half-sister Becky Granger for leaving home when Kylie was eight, and was thrown out after falling pregnant at nineteen. Max's dad, Callum Logan, ended up in prison, and Max was taken into care as Kylie was homeless. In 2010, Becky tracked Kylie down and helped her regain custody of Max, but fearing she couldn't hack it as a mother, Kylie sold Max to Becky and Steve McDonald and left. She made a surprise return to Weatherfield the following year after meeting and getting engaged to David Platt in Tenerife, where she was working as a cage dancer. After getting married, the Platts won custody of Max and in 2013 Kylie gave birth to their daughter Lily - although there was uncertainty over her parentage due to a one-night stand between Kylie and Nick Tilsley. Arriving in the Street as an opportunistic thief, Kylie frequently pushed David to get what he could from his family - including Audrey Roberts's salon where they both worked - but matured as she was accepted into the Platt clan.
