Whilst still coming to terms with their one night stand, Coronation Street’s Nick Tilsley and his sister-in-law, Kylie Platt, are set for even more drama when it is revealed that their brief encounter has resulted in Kylie getting pregnant!
Fans of the hit ITV soap will know how Nick (Ben Price) and Kylie (Paula Lane) turned to each other after Nick’s wedding to Leanne (Jane Danson) was called off on Christmas Day, and Kylie’s marriage to Nick’s half-brother, David (Jack P Shepherd) seemed to be over.
After their Boxing Day betrayal, the pair decided that they would put the huge mistake behind them and get on with their lives, despite Kylie wanting to come clean to her husband.
However, as with all soap secrets, things are set to get even more complicated when Kylie discovers that she is pregnant in the next few weeks.
Ben Price, who plays Nick, told Inside Soap: “Of course Nick’s one-night stand with Kylie will come back to haunt him. There’s just no way something like that can be hidden on the Street.
“If I was Nick’s mate, I’d tell him not to dig any more holes for himself and leave Weatherfield for good. But I don’t want to do myself out of a job!”
Meanwhile, Paula Lane – who plays Kylie – told Radio Times of the pregnancy: “This could blow the whole Platt family apart. No matter what option they go down, there are risks involved. So it’s just trying to work out which isn’t going to hurt so many people.
“Kylie’s got more to lose than Nick, but he doesn’t see it like that. It’s his family. So Kylie wants to come clean but Nick doesn’t. He says an abortion is the only thing that works for all of them, but Kylie’s not sure it works for her.”
Whatever they decide to do, things are not set to go according to plan when an enemy of the pair discovers the truth, meaning it is only a matter of time before David does too!
