Coronation Street viewers up and down the country were heartbroken when Ben Price, AKA Nick Tilsley, announced he was quitting the show back in January 2017. After breaking things off with his ex-wife Leanne Battersby for what felt like the hundredth time, his final scenes aired last June.

Although it was sad to see him go, Ben, who has played Nick on Corrie since 2009, revealed in an interview on This Morning in February last year that he was leaving to spend more time with his family, who lived 200 miles away, adding that he was only seeing them for a day or so.

However, back in April of this year, it was announced that Ben was returning to the cast, after a source told The Sun of his return.

They said: "Exactly how Nick will be brought back into the fray is still to be decided. But the Platts, and in particular Nick, are a massive part of the Corrie family and always at the heart of some of the show’s biggest storylines.

"Producers are currently coming up with a bombshell way for him to come back to Weatherfield."

And it sounds as though they've done just that as it's now being reported that Ben will return to our screens as Nick Tilsley in the autumn, with his scenes airing this October.

A source told The Sun Online that the cast couldn't wait to have Ben back on the show, saying: "He was definitely missed during his break but he's back now and it's like he's never been away."
