Nick Tilsley, a stalwart of Coronation Street, was recently kicked out of his house after Sam Blakeman and Leanne Battersby found out about his involvement in Damon Hay’s drug dealing.
After Nick (Ben Price), not realizing the money came from Harvey Gaskell (Will Mellor), had accepted it from Nick, Damon (Ciaran Griffiths), was using the Bistro as a front for a few months. Nick hid this from Leanne (Jane Danson), but after she and Sam (Jude Riordan) discovered his error, they decided it would be best if he temporarily moved out of their Coronation Street home.
Sam was devastated to learn that his father had turned to Harvey for help, given that Harvey was responsible for the death of Sam’s mother.
Upcoming scenes reveal that Sam and Hope Stape’s (Isabella Flanagan) friendship reaches a new level as they attempt to recover from the news and return to normal.
Official spoilers reveal that Nick is reminded of how much he misses his son when Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) reveals that Sam and Hope are now dating.
Sam had to extort money from Tyrone for the movie tickets because he was unable to ask his own father for them before the pair left on their date.
Sarah Barlow (Tina O’Brien) comes up with an idea when a dejected Nick admits that neither Sam nor Leanne want anything to do with him.
Will Leanne and Sam be reunited by Sarah?
Will Nick’s determination to win Leanne and Sam back only serve to further alienate them?
Since Hope assisted Sam with his mutism following the passing of his mother Natasha Blakeman, the two have been best friends (Rachel Leskovac).
She made the decision to give Sam a walkie-talkie and to sit in a different room from him so he wouldn’t feel overstimulated by other people’s reactions to what he was saying.
Since Sam helped Hope with her plan for revenge following the death of Cilla the Chinchilla, they have become closer.
Their charming relationship is evolving as they decided to become boyfriend and girlfriend in the cafe.
Do you want another milkshake, Sam enquired? Hope declined because she needed to clean her room first.
“Thanks for coming with me, talking to you is really helpful,” Sam continued. What about my girlfriend? Hope gave a perplexed expression and said, “I don’t know.”
Sam needed more information and turned to the nearby Summer Spellman (Harriety Bibby), who clarified: “Well first of all you have to like each other.
“Typically more than your other friends, like. That’s really all there is to it; as long as you both agree, everything is fine.
Iain MacLeod, the head of Coronation Street, recently discussed Hope’s upcoming months, saying they would be centered on the difficulties she faces as she approaches puberty.
He explained on Loose Women: “She’s certainly not going to continue going down such a troubled path, in the short to medium to long-term.
“We thought ‘Actually, we’ve done some very dark and twisted things with that character, and okay that’ll still be part of her, but for the next 12 months we’re going to do normal pre-teen stuff’.
“We’re going to be building a friendship with her and Sam that will verge on a very innocent pre-teen romance a little bit and they try to navigate those waters.
“Yes okay, it will always have a Hope twist on it because she’s maybe wired a bit differently than most kids her age. She won’t necessarily get help, but we’ll see a more down-to-earth grounded side of her.”
