Coronation Street's Nick Tilsley tries to convince Kylie Platt to have an abortion when he finds out she's pregnant.
The bad boy businessman - who is portrayed by Ben Price in the ITV1 soap - is horrified to find out he could be the father of the brunette beauty's baby after she cheated on her husband and Nick's brother David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) with him on Christmas Day (25.12.12) night.
Nick is "shocked" when Kylie - who is played by Paula Lane - tells him she's expecting following their one-night stand on his failed wedding day, and urges her to have the baby terminated "straight away" because she doesn't know who the father is.
Paula said: "It takes two to tango. It wasn't just her doing so he should be involved now. Nick's shocked. He's frightened and thinks she should get rid straight away, but then it could be David's baby.
"It's such a mess and Kylie's really struggling with the guilt. She can't guess who the dad is and that just makes it so much harder for her to make a decision."
Kylie confides in her friend and Nick's ex-girlfriend Eva Price (Catherine Tyldesley) about her pregnancy and Eva then tells David that Kylie is about to have an abortion, so he turns up at the clinic much to the her surprise.
Paula added to Soaplife magazine: "Kylie's horrified. He shouldn't be there and it totally throws her and highlights just how much she's hurt David. She claims she's not worried about their marriage not being strong enough. She's desperate and she's such a convincing liar that even I believed her.
"But David counters everything she comes out with, insisting they can make it work. She's really torn."
