Coronation Street: Daniel pays Nicky to dress in Sinead’s clothes

It's about to get a little bit awkward in Corrie

| Updated:

Coronation Street viewers were left heartbroken last night as Daniel paid prostitute Nicky to dress up in Sinead’s clothes.

Fans of Corrie know Daniel’s wife died of cancer last year and he has since struggled with grief.

But recently Daniel met sex worker Nicky and they have been meeting up, seemingly to talk.

However in last night’s episode (Monday, July 20) it was revealed that Daniel has been paying Nicky to wear Sinead’s cardigan and perfume.

Since Sinead’s death, Daniel has struggled to deal with the loss of his wife.

After she died, he jumped straight into a relationship with Bethany Platt, which ended badly when he proposed calling her Sinead.

Afterwards, he went to Scotland for a grief retreat. Since his return he has tried to get himself back into a routine.

He met Nicky at an event his nephew Adam dragged him to to try and get him out of the house.

But will Nicky be able to help him? Does she have another link to the cobbles?

Who is Nicky?

Whilst Nicky is known for her connection to Daniel, viewers have other theories about how else she could be linked to the cobbles.

Some believe she knows abuser Geoff Metcalfe and will play a part in helping free Yasmeen from prison.

Meanwhile, others think that she is connected to sleazy businessman and Bistro worker Ray Crosby.

Viewers were first introduced to Ray last year. He initially came across as a professional businessman. But he soon proved to be dodgy when he made a move on Michelle Connor.

When he took over the Bistro, Alya, Bethany, Daniel and Abi all worked together to expose Ray. They revealed he had propositioned many young girls and forced them to sign non-disclosure agreements.

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
