Things are about to look up for Coronation Street's troubled teen David Platt.
Soap bosses have cast him a brand new girlfriend!
Actress Kirsty-Leigh Porter has landed a role on the ITV soap as Zoe, who meets David at his workplace.
Speaking of her new role Porter said: "I'm absolutely delighted. Me and my family have been lifelong Corrie fans and - if possible - I think my mum is even more excited than I am!"
She added: "I can't wait to start working with Jack [P. Shepherd] and the rest of the cast."
David first sets eyes on Zoe when he washes her hair in his Grandma Audrey's salon.
He then asks the pretty blonde to come along to his ex-girlfriend Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) and her new boyfriend Jason Grimshaw's (Ryan Thomas) housewarming party to try and make Tina jealous.
Porter has previously starred in 'Doctors' 'Shameless' and 'Ashes To Ashes'.
Viewers can catch her in Coronation Street at the end of September.
