Coronation Street's Nick Tilsley will slap his wife Leanne across the face on Christmas Day (25.12.13).
The short-tempered businessman - who is played by Ben Price - is set to fly into a fit of rage during a family meal on the festive day after his loving spouse (Jane Danson) teases him over a cracker.
Ben explained: "It's been a very stressful two days for Nick. On Christmas Day, there's lots of noise at the meal table and people keep knocking glasses over. It's too much for him and his frustration just boils over.
"His anger comes out and Leanne gets the brunt of it. Beforehand, it looks like he's fine but he's not. His head's all over the place - he has a headache and it's just too much. Leanne says the wrong thing at the wrong time."
However, the blonde beauty is left wondering whether she can trust the man she loves after a car crash in the summer, which was caused by his jealous brother David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd), left him with an angry personality.
Ben explained to RadioTimes.com: "It's awful for her. At that point, something dies in their relationship. They've lost that trust and he's done the worst thing he can imagine. She's shocked, upset and disappointed and Nick realises at this point that they're not going to be fine."
