    NICK TILSLEY RETURNS AS A MARRIED MAN!

    Nick Tilsley is set to return to Coronation Street with his life in a very different way to the quicksand wading bistro owner we saw leave with his tail between his legs.

    We can now reveal that Nick will arrive back as a married man – but he won’t be necessarily rushing to inform people like his exes Leanne and Carla about his matrimony news.

    Nick was last seen a couple of years back ditching his relationship to Leanne after being unable to get his head around his own jealousy and he has a lot of catching up to do when he returns such as David’s ordeal and the return of Carla.

    But is it is a happy marriage ....as Nick is only returning because he’s running away from his wife!

    Suffice to say, Nick isn’t being honest – but when his wife rocks up, how will he explain?

    Fans will have to wait and see why Nick has returned and what he is running from but this is another fine mess he’s gotten himself into.

    Fans meanwhile, are desperate to know if he will hook up with either Leanne or Carla – he has unfinished business with both and both couples have their fandoms.

    What makes things even more complicated is that his long term enemy Peter Barlow is getting closer and closer to Carla at the moment too and they are even in business together.

    Whatever happens, we sense ructions afoot – and we can’t wait.

    Nick’s return comes amid other major Coronation Street autumn storylines such as Josh’s exit, a horrific car crash involving the Connor brothers and the culmination of Jim McDonald’s cruel scheme against Liz.

    He's back! Coronation Street aired Nick Tilsley's return scenes on Friday night (October 12) as he rushed back to Weatherfield following Leanne Battersby's involvement in the Connor family's horror car chase.

    The dramatic turn of events paves the way for Nick to become a permanent resident of the Street once again, as Ben Price has agreed to reprise the role on a regular basis after more than a year away.

    Here, we catch up with Ben about why it was the right time to return and what the viewers can expect from Nick now he's back.

    How does it feel to be back?

    "It feels good. It's nice to see everyone, including my on-screen family. They've been getting up to a lot of things while I've been gone. Remarkably, my first scene was back at Number 8 with the family, and within about 15 seconds, we were all gossiping before the take. I was back in, they said 'action' and it was like I hadn't gone.

    "I'm very lucky that I've got those ties on the street. It's nice to be with Jane Danson (Leanne), Ali King (Carla), Chris Gascoyne (Peter) and then the family. The Platt family is a nice place to be."

    Was it difficult to get back into the character of Nick?

    "There's not much to it. The show gives you your character, while the family give you a sense of where you are and what you've done. So that's very easy to play and then you just fall in. Before you know it, you are just talking to your brother or your gran. So they made it very easy for me. I didn't feel like: 'This is a bit weird'. I just thought, 'Oh, okay, I'll have a cup of tea and say some lines'. And that's what we did."

    How did the return come about?

    "We talked about it for a while, maybe nine or ten months ago. It was more to do with me trying to balance my home life and my work life. That was really why I left the show. I think I made it clear at the time when I went. It wasn't because of the show, as I love the show. It wasn't about me going off to do another thing. It was me just going home, making a packed lunch, taking the kids to school, just being at home and being a dad.

    "So I did that. Then we worked out a way for me to get a bit more of a balance. Then they had to think about how they were going to write me back. [Corrie's former producer] Kate Oates was very good. I was very lucky that they found an easy way for me to come back in.

    "When we talked about me coming back, I didn't need to know the story. I didn't want to know and I don't like to know. Jack P Shepherd (David) is the same, actually. All of the Platts are the same. We don't like to know beyond what we're doing, or else you're always chasing something else."

    Are you looking forward to the storyline that's coming up for Nick?

    "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.

    "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."

    Why didn't Nick stay in contact with anyone?

    "I think Nick recognises what the street is. It's not a 'dip in and dip out'. Not with his mum and not with his gran. If he had known about his brother, he would have come back. It's a black-and-white situation for Nick – he's either there or he's not. When he's not there, he has to block it completely off.

    "Leanne is his first point of contact and afterwards, Nick knows in his heart that the street is where he belongs. It's obvious. Everything's there for him – his ex-wives, his family. Family is everything to him."

    Nick has connections away from the Street, though, doesn't he?

    "I can't say much about that, but I think it's good that he's had a life. There are a lot of complications. He's not been static while he's been away. That will add to the fabric of how he comes back. I think it is important that he is different. Not majorly, but there's stuff going on."

    Is it difficult for him to see Carla?

    "No, it's Peter he hates! With Carla, they drive each other a bit. With Leanne, it's old love and first love. With him and Carla, it's that bit of fire. He kind of loves her as well, I think. In a way, he loves the excitement."

    Could Nick and Leanne rekindle things?

    "I think so. I hope so. It's up to her. He's pretty much on the back foot, I think. Once a character in a story absences himself so heavily, then all the characters who had to deal with that life turn around and go: 'You weren't there, actually. So how would I trust you?' That definitely applies to David and it won't be very easy with Leanne either."

    Will Nick be there to support Leanne with her recovery after the crash?

    "He's definitely there. Nick loves a little rescue! But as for how much she'll let him, I don't know. When Nick left, he couldn't handle the fact that Leanne had a child with Steve. All of those things broke down for him and he couldn't see a way through it, so then he left. But after the accident, he's come in and tries to help."

    Did you watch any of Jack's big episodes this year when David was raped?

    "Yeah, I did. I think it was really stunning work and fantastic acting. It was painful to watch and thought Jack did a brilliant job. While I was away, we texted every day, a bit like brothers. I saw Helen Worth (Gail) a lot too.

    "It's hard, because you're in a story like that for a long time. I've had those stories myself where you are in a maelstrom of crying and pain. So I think Jack did brilliantly. So yeah, I watched it. He asked me to!"

    Are you looking forward to Nick and Peter's rivalry?

    "Yeah, it's great. Peter represents everything Nick doesn't like, and Nick represents everything Peter doesn't like. Immediately, the two characters see each other and they hate each other. But strangely, Nick really likes Peter's son. He's really there for Simon. Peter really doesn't like that, but he recognises that Nick has an ability with him. So in a brilliant way, it's never as clear cut.

    "That was actually the easiest thing to play, as soon as Chris Gascoyne walked in. I spoke to Chris a lot while I was away. When we filmed our scenes back together, it was just Nick being nasty. I found it funny, so I just laughed on the take. Which is lovely, because that's what you want. You want it to progress. You can't play the same thing. We did that six years ago, so now I want to play something different."

    Could Nick take over one of the local businesses?

    "He might do! He loves a business, Nick. 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.

    "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."

    Could overprotective Toyah stand in the way of Nick and Leanne?

    "I don't know whether she will but I'm sure she'll try! Nick and Toyah don't get on. I think she is the one character that Nick can't swerve. She's protective of Leanne and she doesn't trust Nick.

    "Nick tries, but he can't find a way in with her. She just out and out doesn't trust him and I'm not sure whether that will change. I'm not sure whether it should. I think there should be an element of some characters going: 'I don't like him. I'm not sure about Nick'. Because I think that's healthy.

    "You've got to remember that the audience are watching it and you need to have some of them going: 'Oh, I don't like him'. You've got to cater for that. There will be people sitting on the same settee with completely different opinions on the characters – and that's what telly is."

    Coronation Street is lining up a family feud for the Platts that will rage throughout 2019.

    It has most definitely been a rocky road for David Platt (Jack P Shepherd) and Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) since Nick returned to Weatherfield, but there are no signs of the brotherly bond improving next year.

    Corrie producer Iain MacLeod has revealed to Digital Spy and other outlets that the half-siblings will be at each other's throats, thanks to Lewis Archer's (Nigel Havers) rumoured plot to swindle Audrey (Sue Nicholls) of her £80,000 inheritance from Archie Shuttleworth.

    "The Lewis/Audrey story we're running at New Year is the launchpad of a massive family saga for the Platts that will draw in and pit against each other all the members of the Platt family in counter argument and recrimination," the producer teased.

    "Nick and David end up running a new business together on Victoria Street – a barber shop with a pun in the name. A secret emerges after the New Year, which proves so corrosive that they end up hating each other more than they ever have.

    "We're likening it to Cain and Abel – one of them isn’t going to kill the other, but they’ll come pretty close in how much they come to loathe each other. It starts in January and plays out over the next 12 months."

    BIB Erm - i thought that was going to be Ali and Ryan?

    A Corrie source said: “It will be very Cain and Abel because of that sibling rivarly. They’re not siblings but they kind of are.”

    He used to be likable and a bit caring to others.

    I think its definitely Nick. Did you see his face when Audrey said they she had no savings. He really looked guilty.
