Nick Tilsley is left out in the cold during next week’s Coronation Street when Leanne Battersby admits she doesn’t want him to feature on his son’s birth certificate.
Leanne gives birth to a little boy she calls Oliver next week and while Nick’s thrilled he’s soon brought crashing back down to earth.
Soap fans will know that Nick is not Oliver’s father, Steve McDonald is, and he’s hurt when Leanne breaks the news to Nick that she doesn’t want his name on Oliver’s birth certificate as it would seem wrong.
But later, after talking to David, Leanne tells Nick that she’s had a change of heart and she wants his name on the birth certificate.
Nick’s thrilled but as they’re about to leave, David stops them and explains that the Register Office will have to wait as Gail’s organised a party in the bistro to celebrate the birth of their baby.
As the Platts gather in the bistro, Michelle and Steve are forced to watch the party from their table nearby, both struggling to mask their conflicting emotions.
How will Steve feel when he finds out he’s been left off the birth certificate? For more Coronation Street news and spoilers click here now.
