20th December1993: Vera Duckworth was ecstatic when son Terry was released from Strangeways Jail halfway through his sentence for GBH due to his supposed good behaviour, dreaming of a new life for him at their home with Terry's infant son Tommy. What she could have no idea of was that Tommy's maternal grandparents, Jeff and Doreen Horton were already in touch with Terry and went for a meal with him upon his release when they discussed the terms of a contract whereby they would gain lawful custody of Tommy for £5,000 upfront followed by £2,000 per year until he reached the age of sixteen. When Terry returned home, Vera looked forward to her "best ever" Christmas little realising that her world was about to fall apart...
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.
