Julia Goulding is taking just four months maternity leave.

The "Coronation Street" actress - who is expecting a baby with her husband Ben Silver - won't be away from Weatherfield for too long, and her co-star Jack P. Shepherd has hinted their alter-egos Shona Ramsey and David Platt could tie the knot on screen before she leaves.

Speaking to Inside Soap magazine, he said: "Julia's off for four months but we may cross over on screen when David gets out of prison.

"I'd like them to have a massive wedding, although I doubt that will happen, as they don't have any money now that David's given his nan the barbers.

"Shona doesn't make much at Roy's. I imagine it will be a registrar down at the town hall or the bistro."

David proposed to Shona in March, and Julia admitted at the time she was hoping for a big on-screen wedding.

She said: "Fingers crossed, they'll make it to the altar. I genuinely think they do love each other.

"I hope they have a big, big wedding. Neither of them have had an easy ride of it these past few years so I think a big celebration would be wonderful."

Shona called off their engagement last month after David revealed he had spent part of his gran Audrey Roberts" (Sue Nicholls) stolen money, but a Weatherfield wedding is definitely on the cards.

She added: "At the moment the engagement is off, but I am allowed to say that we will be getting married.

"I think she's tried really hard to bring herself out of the gutter and I think she calms him. I think she makes him a bit more mature."

Julia - who married Ben in February after three years of dating - revealed her pregnancy news in May.

She wrote on Instagram: "Ben and I are delighted to announce that we are expecting our first baby at the end of this year! We are absolutely overjoyed and can't wait to meet our little one!"
