Who is Daniel's new love interest Nicky in Corrie and who plays her?

Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) has naturally been struggling to move on in Coronation Street following the death of beloved wife Sinead (Katie McGlynn) last year.

But it looks as though a new love interest could be on the horizon for the character, after he is persuaded to join Adam (Sam Robertson) at an event – and meets a woman named Nicky.

With the character having felt so lonely and isolated since Sinead’s death, it’s understandable he’s nervous about moving on.

But just who is Nicky – and who plays the Weatherfield newcomer?

Who is Daniel’s new love interest Nicky in Coronation Street?

Nicky is a woman who Daniel meets at a swanky lawyers’ drinks reception that he is invited to be Adam – with the pair hitting it off straight away.

As the night progresses and the pair get to know each other better, she suggests they make a night out of it – but Daniel is unsure how to proceed.

‘Nicky has no boundaries and for Daniel, who is so uptight, it’s refreshing to have someone who doesn’t tip-toe around him,’ Rob Mallard explained.


‘She is very bolshy and that is what attracts him. She is very opposite to Sinead because Sinead wasn’t like that but they are both a similar height, both are blonde and from the first glance, subconsciously, he will have been drawn to her. But she has a completely different energy to Sinead.’

We’ll have to keep watching to see how the pair’s relationship develops in coming episodes.

Who plays Nicky in Coronation Street?

Nicky is played in the soap by actress Kimberly Hart-Simpson.

Kimberly may already be familiar to soap fans, having played the role of Beverley in Hollyoaks earlier this year.

‘You might also recognise her from Sky One’s series Mount Pleasant.

The actress confirmed the news of her Corrie debut on Instagram earlier this month, saying, ‘After nearly decade of auditioning…believing…it’s happened. Proudest moment of my life.’

Coronation Street continues on ITV tonight at 7.30pm.
