Coronation Street bosses are planning a dramatic storyline involving the warring brothers, David Platt and Nick Tilsley, which will see them end up in hospital.

The Sun reports that the pair will be involved in a major car crash which will leave Nick’s life hanging in the balance.

Tension has been building on the cobbles for the last few weeks since David (Jack P Shepherd) found out that his wife’s baby may actually be his brother’s and not his.

A source is quoted as saying that Nick (Ben Price) and David have a huge row in a car which spins out of control and crashes. Both brothers need emergency treatment at the hospital just as Kylie (Paula Lane) is about to give birth.

The scenes are expected to air on screen in August.
