One possible theory is that Nicky is linked to evil Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholemew) who was revealed to have slept with multiple escorts.
Viewers only saw one of the women in question on-screen, so it could be possible the two have met before and she’s on the cobbles to spill the beans on his true nature.
With drama continuing elsewhere in the village, it could be possible the new character is linked to somebody else in the village
Perhaps, with the ongoing storyline over Carla Connor’s (Alison King) past and the involvement of The Rover’s long-term guest Scott (played by Tom Roberts) could she have a surprising link to the latter as questions start to be raised over his true identity?
