Leanne Battersby actress Jane Danson has teased the imminent fireworks lit by Nick Tilsley’s Corrie secret.
Next week, Nick finally confesses to his other half that Damon Hay is in fact villain Harvey Gaskell’s brother and, right under her nose, he’s been using the Bistro for drug drops.
“After everything they went through with Oliver, then Jacob turning up and then Harvey, this happens. It all came on the back of such a traumatic time and they got through that,” Danson admitted.

“Then just when she thought her life was back on track, she’s dealing with her grief and getting over the Harvey situation this happens. It’s almost like it just comes back to hit her in the face, because of the one person she trusted more than anybody.”
But how will Leanne deal with this deception?
“She’s incredulous at first, she’s like, ‘Are you absolutely joking me, after everything we’ve been through this is the way you got the money. Could you not have been to a bank, could you not have found another way or even just given up on the Bistro and started again? But no, you took money from Harvey,’ and it’s devastated her,” Danson added.
“Her default mode is just explode and think later. So she kind of does that true to form at first, she’s just so upset.”

By the sound of things, Nick will be lucky to earn forgiveness here.
“It will be interesting to see if Nick and Leanne can patch their relationship up,” the soap actress pointed out, before suggesting her character “needs space to work out how she feels”.
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
