Coronation Street Wiki

Warren Jackson (born 24th November 1980 in Manchester) appeared as Nick Tilsley on Coronation Street from January 1981 to September 1996.

He was selected to play Nick when Christopher Quinten, who played his on-screen father Brian Tilsley, suggested him to the production team as Quinten was friends with Jackson's parents Peter and Jasmine Jackson.

Jackson left the role to concentrate on his GCSEs, expecting to return shortly afterwards, but he was instead replaced with Adam Rickitt in 1997.

He appeared in the 2004 documentary The Kids from Coronation Street, in which he was interviewed about his time on the main programme and even returned to the set with other former Corrie child stars including Lynsay King, who played his onscreen sibling Sarah Louise Platt.
