Coronation Street spoilers: Escort Nicky to be terrified as she's drawn into Geoff Metcalfe's sights

CORONATION Street sex worker Nicky Wheatley is set to be drawn into the sick and manipulative world of Geoff Metcalfe, soap boss Iain Macleod has revealed.

The prostitute – who is played by actress Kimberly Hart-Simpson in the ITV soap – has so far avoided the clutches of the abusive villain, but that is all set to change.

Executive producer Iain told The Sun Online: "We have more for Daniel – we have seen his slightly messed up friendship with Nicky.

"That will go on for some time but not the way you are expecting.

"It draws in Geoff at a certain point which becomes significant for Yasmeen’s trial in a huge way – that’s going to be really big."

The news comes as the soap confirmed it will return to airing six episodes per week from Monday September 14.


A series of explosive storylines will see David and Shona fighting to rekindle their lost love, Daniel’s confused emotional connection to sex worker Nicky deepen, an epic feud between Abi and Debbie begins, while Peter’s involvement in Abi’s dark past will bring trouble to his own door with Carla.

Leanne will take on the world as she fights to save her son Oliver, however a face from Nick’s past threatens his future when Natasha Blakeman returns to Weatherfield.

Natasha isn’t the only face returning to Coronation Street, Todd Grimshaw’s return spells more heartache for Eileen and plants a bomb under Billy and Paul. 

But it’s not all heartache for Eileen when a new arrival puts a spring in her step and finally gives her a worthy love interest.

Iain said: “The amount of work that has gone into keeping Coronation Street on the air, and getting it back to six episodes a week, has been staggering. 

“I am so proud of the tireless efforts of everyone behind the scenes and onscreen. 

“We have been energised and motivated by the nearly 60 years of heritage behind the show, and the massively important place it still holds in the Nation’s hearts. “
