Coronation Street SPOILER: Nick Tilsley to own the factory again?

Nick has returned to the cobbles and he's got his eyes on his former business

Nick Tilsley’s return will see him take back control of one of his former businesses, Coronation Street star Ben Price has hinted.

The actor made his shock return to the soap on Friday night when Nick appeared at ex Leanne Battersby’s bedside in hospital.

But he won’t let the grass grow under his feet as he moves back to Weatherfield full time.

“He loves a business, Nick,” Price said at a recent press day.

“Hypothetically, I’d like the factory. Who knows what happens with the Bistro? But I think Nick works best in a business.

“There are certain characters that work really well running a business – Carla, Peter, Audrey, Kevin, Dev – they work really well, and you know what you get from them.”

He added: “I started in the factory, and I like the dynamic there. I like being with Ali King, too. So there’s a few possibilities for him, and I’m sure I’m going to get into a business.”

And Nick will be a changed man now he’s back.

Ben added: “Yeah, you can expect a different Nick.

“A lot’s happened to him. He will have more ties than we will have known and that will come out.

“When he comes back, he doesn’t understand what’s happened to his brother or his family. When he finds out, that’s a shock for him.”

But it’s his ignorance of what happened to his family while he’s been away will see him clash with them next week.

Ben said: “Nick slips back in easily with his mum and his gran. But other people hold a bit of a grudge, asking: ‘Where did you go? You left me’.

“You’ve got to work that out and we worked that out in real time. That’s what’s great about this show, as you work it out and you don’t have to just do it in one episode.”
