Nick Tilsley makes an unexpected return to Coronation Street next week but why is he back and what does he want?
Corrie bosses are keeping the details of Nick’s return under their hats but we can reveal that it’s his feelings for ex-wife Leanne Battersby that call him back to the cobbles.
He left more than a year ago after being devastated when his family life with Leanne Battersby fell apart.
The couple had been raising baby Olly together as parents, hiding the truth that Steve McDonald was his biological father.
Their happy secret was blown apart when Steve, overcome with guilt, revealed the truth to his wife Michelle.
A typical soap explosive storyline followed with Nick almost dying in quicksand.
He soon realised that he had to leave Weatherfield for his own sanity and promptly flogged his remaining share of the Bistro to Robert Preston.
A low key exit followed as Nick moved away to begin a new life.
It might be Leanne that’s made Nick return but he doesn’t know that another ex, Carla Connor, has also returned in his absence leading many to suspect that the old love triangle is about to resumed.
Nick famously battled Peter Barlow for both Carla and Leanne, so could his comeback see a return to that?
Actress Alison King recently teased: “Nick was the love of her life and he was the calm one.
“He is the calm grown up, the one that would have been good for her, and then there is Peter who couldn’t be more different.
“There is a lot there to be explored, it will interesting to see what impact his return has.”
Viewers have watched Carla fight against her own growing feelings for Peter, while Leanne has moved on completely.
