A shocking secret is set to tear the Platt family apart and sees Nick Tilsley and David Platt become the next ‘Cain and Abel’.
Speaking about the explosive scenes airing next year, Coronation Street boss Iain MacLeod reveals the brothers start a new business venture together in Victoria Street.
However this all goes south and the pair end up hating each other more than ever… which is a pretty strong statement considering David has already tried to kill Nick after he slept with Kylie.
Chatting about the upcoming storyline, Iain said: "All the Lewis and Audrey stuff is a launchpad for a massive family saga for the Platts that will draw in and pit against all of the members of the Platt family.
"Nick and David end up, firstly, running a new business together on Victoria Street – a barber shop with a pun in the name. The idea is that Nick and David go into business together and the secret that emerges in the new year proves so corrosive that they end up hating each other more than they ever have.
"And I’ve written the words ‘Cain and Abel’ down here which is… well, one of them isn’t going to kill the other one, they’ll come pretty close in terms of how much they come to loathe each other."
Nick has already been hiding secrets from David since he returned to the cobbles.
The former Bistro owner failed to tell his family that he was married – and didn’t return David’s calls during his rape trauma earlier this year.
Nick and David appeared to be able to get over their initial hurdles, but what secret is set to come out of the woodwork that could split them apart for good?
