She quickly made an impression on him - and viewers - and they later met up in a hotel room.

Nicky has quickly proven herself to be an exciting new character, but fans suspect there's more to her than just being Daniel's new love interest.

Viewers know evil Geoff cheated on wife Yasmeen with a succession of escorts during his campaign of control and terror against her.

She is currently in prison awaiting trial for attempted murder.
