Nigel was the boyfriend of Imogen - the daughter of Fat Brenda and the antagonist of the Coronation Street spin-off Street Car Stories. He arrived at Street Cars to pick up Imogen and could be heard revving up his car from outside. A couple of days later he dumped Imogen by phone, which promoted an angry Steve McDonald and Lloyd Mullaney to phone him up challenging him to a fight for the way he had treated her. Imogen warned them that Nigel was a cage fighter and boxer but it was too little too late as, living in Tile Street, he turned up outside the cab office in a matter of minutes. This panicked Steve and Lloyd, however Brenda turned up and beat up Nigel for the way he had treated her daughter.
- The character was unseen, although he revved up his car in Victoria Street and was heard when he got into a fight with Brenda. After Steve and Lloyd looked out of the window they described Nigel as "massive and covered in tattoos".
