The soap saw how Nick (played by Ben Price) and Leanne Battersby's (Jane Danson) relationship is at breaking point down at the seaside.
Walking off after a heated argument, Nick looked set to drown after becoming stuck in a quicksand horror scenario, but was rescued during tonight’s episode.
Director Michael Lacey revealed that plans for filming changed after conditions were different on the day of the shoot, explaining: “This time last week, the tide when it came in kind of covered most of all this area of grassland and marshland.

Steve McDonald actor Simon Gregson said: “We’ve got all sorts of people here. We’ve got the coastguard and we’ve got paramedics and stuff if the proverbial hits the fan.
