'Coronation Street' Ben Price: 'No happy families for Nick'

By
Coronation Street star Ben Price has warned that his character Nick Tilsley will never be on good terms with half-brother David for long.

Nick shows his caring side in the coming days as he tries to reunite David (Jack P Shepherd) with his estranged wife Kylie (Paula Lane), encouraging the troubled mum-of-one to return home to the cobbles.

The storyline begins in tonight's (May 17) episode as Nick heads out to a strip club with David and is left stunned to see Kylie working as one of the dancers.

Price, revealing Nick's point of view in the plot, told Daybreak today: "I'm the older brother and my younger brother has this tempestuous relationship with Kylie, and I think they love each other. I think it's young love, I think they're great together, I think she's been very damaged by other people and I want them to be happy.

"We go into this strip club just to have a little drink and have a bit of a laugh, and I see her and I know that if David sees her, it will devastate him. So I think Nick just wants to protect his brother and keep them together."

However, asked whether this means Nick and David will start getting along better, the actor replied: "Gail would love that! I think Gail wants this perfect, happy family, but that will never happen. [Nick] and David - there's always going to be a bit of stress and a bit of tension."

Price also praised the decision to film the upcoming scenes in a real-life strip club.

He said: "That was the best for us as actors. The real girls were there, so then when Paula was dancing, you got a real sense that you were in that strip club."

Coronation Street airs tonight (May 17) at 8.30pm on ITV1.
