love And lies

Leanne con­sid­ers a re­u­nion with Nick, but she’s un­aware he’s hid­ing a se­cret…

TV Times - - Cover Story -

There’s no doubt that Leanne Bat­tersby and Nick Til­s­ley are meant to be. They were each other’s first loves and, de­spite ev­ery­thing, they’re al­ways pulled back to­gether. So it shouldn’t come as much of a sur­prise that, fol­low­ing Nick’s re­turn to the cob­bles, Leanne ig­nores step­sis­ter Toyah’s ad­vice, and con­sid­ers giv­ing their re­la­tion­ship an­other try.

‘Nick and Leanne are soul mates,’ says Jane Dan­son, who plays Leanne. ‘They’ve been to­gether since they were 16, on and off.’

But as Leanne con­sid­ers a fu­ture with the man she’s al­ready mar­ried twice, lit­tle does she re­alise that Nick isn’t be­ing straight with her. He has a big se­cret, con­nected to his time in Not­ting­ham.

‘Nick has an­other life,’ teases ac­tor Ben Price. ‘You’ll find that all is not quite as it seems...’

Obliv­i­ous, Leanne ac­cepts Nick’s of­fer to pay for her and Toyah to live in Johnny and Jenny’s old flat, but her neigh­bours aren’t so trust­ing.

Shona is sus­pi­cious when she over­hears Nick ly­ing to a mys­tery caller that he has to stay in Weather­field be­cause Gail is ill. Mean­while, Carla smells a rat when Nick is vague about his busi­ness in the Mid­lands. What is he hid­ing?
