The pregnant resident develops shooting pains in her body and is rushed to hospital following concerns for her unborn child.
However, that’s not the only thing on her mind as evil dad Pat Phelan (Connor McIntyre) now has a key to her flat.
Pat spots nemesis Seb Franklin (Harry Visinoni) in the accommodation and instantly calls the police on the “intruder”.
Concerned Nicola tells Gary Windass (Mikey North) that her dad must be behind the report and instantly worries that he has discovered her back-stabbing secret.
When Nicola is rushed to hospital, tensions reach breaking point as Gary and Pat clash over their pregnant acquaintance.
The dodgy businessman slams Gary for ruining his relationship with his daughter, but Pat gets a taste of his own medicine when he is branded a liar and a murderer.
Thankfully, Nicola and her unborn baby are fine and must rest, but that’s easier said than done with the warring men in the room with her.
It goes from bad to worse for her after Pat asks to speak to her alone and she instantly worries that he’s on to her.
Will Pat discover her betrayal? And will her baby face another danger from her murderous dad?
This follows last night’s dramatic instalment of the soap which saw the beginning of the end for Pat.
The dodgy builder was asked by new boss, Mona, to drain a lake nearby their apartment project.
However, fans of Coronation Street will recall that his victims’ bodies lie in the water.
With the pressure on to finish the flats, will Pat risk his secret coming out?
Or will he choose to gamble his job in order to keep his wrongdoings hidden?
Coronation Street continues tomorrow on ITV at 7.30pm.
