I want you back!

Nick lays his heart on the line to Leanne. Will she agree to them try­ing again?

Leanne is the love of Nick’s life, but it’s com­pli­cated…

They’ve been on and off more times than Steve Mcdon­ald’s trousers. Are Leanne Bat­tersby and Nick Til­s­ley now about to re­unite once again? Fol­low­ing his sud­den re­turn to Weather­field, Nick apol­o­gises to his ex for hav­ing walked out on her last year, and then makes it clear that he wants them to try again.

Nick’s dec­la­ra­tion comes when things are fraught with his fam­ily, who aren’t ex­actly pop­ping cham­pagne corks when they hear he’s back in town. Nick has spent the last year run­ning a restau­rant in Not­ting­ham, but it could’ve been in Outer Mon­go­lia for all they’ve heard of him.

As a re­sult, he knows noth­ing about Bethany be­ing groomed by Nathan, nor of David’s rape by Josh, and the Platts are bit­ter that he wasn’t around to sup­port them dur­ing their dark­est days. Even Gail, who nor­mally wor­ships the ground St Nick walks on, has a few choice words for her old­est son. ‘The re­ac­tions to Nick’s re­turn are all bad,’ re­veals Ben Price, who plays him. ‘Gail’s is bad, but you know Nick will get round her even­tu­ally. With David, it’s not di­rect anger to­ward Nick; it’s dis­ap­point­ment. Nick was al­ways there for him, but he wasn’t around this time when David needed him the most.’

It’s not just Nick’s nearest and dear­est who re­act un­favourably. Un­sur­pris­ingly, Peter Bar­low isn’t hang­ing out the bunting, while Toyah Bat­tersby has a pop at him for leav­ing her sis­ter in the lurch.

As Nick heads over to No.8 to try to build bridges, Gail soon thaws, but David sticks to his guns and says he wants noth­ing to do with his brother. Nick is stunned when Gail then re­veals that David went to prison for beat­ing up Gary Win­dass.

Feel­ing suit­ably guilty, Nick vows to get his life back on track, and tells Leanne that he wants to make things up with her. Will she give him an­other chance?

‘Leanne is the love of Nick’s life, but it’s com­pli­cated,’ adds Ben. ‘Nick was re­ally hurt with how things ended up last time he was in Weather­field re­gard­ing baby Ol­lie and Steve and Peter.’

As Leanne pon­ders his propo­si­tion, Nick is hor­ri­fied when David then lets slip that he con­sid­ered sui­cide. As Nick takes in the shock rev­e­la­tion, will David open up about his ordeal?
