David's DNA test won't reveal Lily's real dad - and here's why

Nick's demanded a DNA test and David's following his brother's orders to carry one out.  But it won't reveal who the father is - and here's why.

Paternity testing company Northgene in Newcastle have confirmed to us here at the Coronation Street Blog today that a test solely on David and Lily's DNA won't result in knowing who the baby's true father is.

Northgene told us: "Our office Coronation Street expert says we'd need DNA samples from both potential fathers and the child, because the brothers are only half-brothers we should be able to exclude one of them.

"The next question we would ask is whether the test had to be legal or peace of mind.  Legal tests can be used for birth certificate changes or for the courts or Child Support Agency, whereas peace of mind could only be used for the family only.

"The charge for a legal test is £478.80 and peace of mind would be £270".

So that means, whatever David's test results show, then it can't be considered accurate until Nick's been tested also to see what his results prove.
