Coronation Street star Ben Price wants to see his character Nick Tilsley hook up with Carla Connor.

Viewers have seen a friendship building between Nick and Carla, and now Ben has hinted it could be leading to something a lot deeper.

He told the Radio Times website: “I would love to see something happen between Nick and Carla. Being two business people, they could make for a bit of a power couple.”

The pair previously co-owned the local underwear factory, Underworld, but have yet to be romantically involved.

Nick and Carla have both had their fair share of heartache on the show. The bistro owner’s rocky marriage to Leanne Battersby ended in divorce, and his most recent fling with Erika Holroyd was never more than a bit of fun.

Knicker queen Carla has struggled with the breakdown of two marriages.

Now they’re both on the market, are sparks about to fly between the two entrepreneurs?

“He definitely fancies her,” Ben said. “And I’m massively excited about doing anything with Ali King.”
