One of our favourite Corrie characters is making a DRAMATIC return to the soap

20th Aug 18 | News

Corrie has released the first picture of their return!

We love when Coronation Street brings back old characters to stir up some drama and take care of unfinished business.

A few familiar faces have returned to the Cobbles over the past few months including Carla Connor and Peter Barlow and another of our favs will be returning in the coming weeks.

ITV have released an image teasing the return of Nick Tilsley, played by actor Ben Price, who can be seen sitting in the Platt’s sitting room.

Nick left the Street after he almost died in a quick sand accident and decided he needed to leave and get a fresh start.

Having a complicated past with Leanne Battersby and Carla Connor, we can’t imagine it’ll be too long before Nick causes some trouble on the street.

Alison King who plays Carla in the soap revealed that Nick’s return will certainly have an impact on her life.

She said: It will be interesting to find out, I hope it does have an impact.”

"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."

The exact circumstances surrounding his return have yet to be revealed but producers are said to have created a “bombshell” storyline for the Ben.

A source told the Sun Online: “Everyone’s really excited to have Ben back.

“He was definitely missed during his break but he’s back now and it’s like he’s never been away.”

Corrie continues tonight at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on TV3 and 3Player or catch up on 3Player now.
