She made her debut in June 2020 after Nicky struck up a friendship with widower Daniel Osbourne.

It soon emerged that she was a prostitute – but Daniel found comfort being with her.

So over the coming weeks and months he paid her to spend time with him – and even had her dress up in his late wife Sinead’s clothes.

Eventually she left the cobbles having received money from Daniel so she could quit escorting and move away.

But this year she made a shock return.

Having retrained as a learning assistant, she landed a job at Weatherfield High where Daniel works as a teacher.

However her career was short-lived after Max Turner exposed her past work to everyone.

She was sacked and lost her flat – before Daniel came to the rescue.

He offered her and daughter Maisie a place to stay with him and Nicky eagerly moved in.

But when it spelled the end of his relationship with girlfriend Daisy – Nicky tried to swoop in and replace her.

Daniel rejected her – and she decided it was time to move out.

Packing up their things, she told Daniel goodbye and insisted she was going to stay with a friend.

Fans assumed it was an exit for the character with one asking: “Ahh you’re not leaving are you?”
