In future Coronation Street scenes, Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) experiences the negative effects of his bargain with the devil after realizing that accepting Harvey Gaskell’s (Will Mellor) money for the restaurant comes with a lot of conditions.
Ryan (Ryan Prescott) is horrified when he is confronted by masked men brandishing guns, and Nick is even more terrified when he learns that Sam (Jude Riordan) is also involved in the events. All of this is happening as Nick reluctantly permits Harvey’s brother Damon (Ciarán Griffiths) to use the bistro to deal drugs.
Nick has to take Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) into his confidence after hiding Damon’s secret goal from her. Ben Price informed us that Nick’s activities have a significant negative impact on his and Leanne’s relationship.
She realizes they are both involved in this and that they must find a way out at that precise moment. “When it calms down, I think it will be different.” She then dives right in, and they begin to devise a strategy to escape,’ Ben said.
They experience it frequently and manage to overcome it by leaning on one another, but I believe Leanne to be slightly more resilient than Nick in these circumstances.
At the end of the day, he would prefer to include her in the dialogue than not, even if it meant breaking them. Sam and Damon begin to have this strange relationship where he buys Sam things and gives him advise, and Nick finds it to be a little too dark.
Although Leanne and Nick are working together to address Damon’s immediate issue, Ben predicts that their relationship will change going forward.
“I don’t believe Nick is terrible, but I think he’s naive. He didn’t get into this deliberately, and I think Leanne appreciates that,” said the speaker. He wants this family to be together, but I don’t think Leanne will make it simple for him; he’ll have to work for it,’ he told us.
However, he does believe that their bond is strong enough for them to endure, and he believes that the public wants that to happen.
He insisted: “I think people want to see them persevere when things become really, really tough, like Carla (Alison King) and Peter (Chris Gascoyne), like Deirdre (Anne Kirkbride), and like Ken (William Roache), because that is real. They may endure so much, yet they manage to stick together.
Many times, it has been the other way around, and he has supported her. The audience wants those characters to stick together even when it’s difficult, so I believe they do need to be together.
