As fans of Coronation Street will know, the whole Nick Tilsley and Leanne Barlow storyline took a surprising turn earlier this week when Nick (Ben Price) finally admitted that regardless of how humiliated he was by Leanne offering her ex-husband Peter (Chris Gascoyne) one last chance to reunite with her – on what should have been her and Nick’s Christmas Day wedding – he still loves her and still wants to be with her…

So he accepted her marriage proposal, and the pair will finally tie the knot tonight! However, whether it’s to be a happy ever after fairytale for the couple remains to be seen, but given this is soap land, that would seem an unlikely scenario.

Particularly given that Nick is about to discover that his sister-in-law Kylie Platt (Paula Lane) is pregnant, and he could well be the father of the baby!

He and Kylie of course shared a drunken night of passion in the honeymoon suite that Nick had booked for him and Leanne (Jane Danson), but after that night, Kylie patched things up with Nick’s brother David (Jack P Shepherd) and therefore he too could be the baby’s daddy…

And no doubt, if Kylie goes through with the pregnancy – she will consider a termination next week – it’s a storyline that’s going to run for some months yet before the paternity issue can be settled once the baby’s born.

However, being a long-term soap fan/addict, I don’t want a happy ever after for anyone on Corrie, and that includes Nick and Leanne! Do you? Or do you, like me, enjoy seeing your favourite soapy characters being tortured?

Time will tell of course, but for now, it’s all smiles – except for Nick’s mum Gail (Helen Worth) who doesn’t approve of the wedding – as Nick and Leanne finally become Mr and Mrs Tilsley.

Don’t miss the drama tonight of both the wedding and Kylie’s shock pregnancy news!

For now, here’s a reminder of the events of Christmas Day on Coronation Street…
