Nick is ALIVE, we know it, Charlie knows it, Carol knows it and soon everyone will know it. He’s heading back to Walford to cause trouble for Dot, his long suffering Ma.
We all thought he was dead and buried when son, Charlie, arrived and delivered the news but since then things haven’t quite added up. Finally speculation ended during Monday’s episode when Carol answered Charlie’s phone and instantly recognised those sinister tones.
But why did he and Charlie fake his death? And why is he soon to be heading back? We can guarantee the answers won’t be boring!
With EastEnders 30th anniversary approaching, Executive Producer, Dominic Treadwell-Collins said “it’s only fitting that our original bad boy – and soap’s most iconic villain – returns to Albert Square to cause more trouble for his Ma. It’s time for the indomitable June Brown to have the Nick story to end all Nick stories – and with Declan and Pauline in the mix too, it’s going to be an exciting bumpy ride as the Cottons begin to unravel…”
It’s been 5 years since John Altman last wore Nick’s infamous leather jacket and he’s very much looking forward to his return, “After a five year break I'm very pleased and much looking forward to returning to EastEnders. With the promise of some hard hitting and gritty storylines I'm sure the residents of Albert Square will be none too pleased to see Nick Cotton back on the streets of Walford. I'm also looking forward to working alongside Declan Bennett and Pauline McLynn. And of course being reunited and working once again with my ‘dear old Ma’, the wonderful June Brown. ”
It won’t be long until we’re hearing ‘Hello, Ma”, again!
