Coronation Street's Nick Tisley (Ben Price) and Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) were worried sick during Wednesday's visit to Weatherfield as they feared little Sam Blackman (Jude Riordan) had gone missing again.
Sam's mum Natasha Blakeman (Rachel Leskovac) has only recently allowed Nick to see their son again after his and Leanne's troubles with Harvey Gaskell (Will Mellor)'s gang led to Sam being kidnapped and trapped in a van for days, an incident which left his family distraught.
When Natasha reached out to Nick next week and asked if he and Leanne can look after Sam for the week, Nick was chuffed to be able to spend proper time with his son again with Natasha's blessing.
