He managed to keep Corey speaking long enough for the police to arrive and arrest him for breaching his bail conditions for Nina’s attack and Seb’s murder.
Viewers know Nina was attacked and left for dead by thug Corey Brent and his gang earlier this year.
The attack claimed her boyfriend Seb’s life and left the community devastated.
This week viewers have watched Nina’s wheels come off as she struggles to cope with her survivor’s guilt.

In tonight’s episode Nina will find Corey at a hotel in Manchester and realise he is being celebrated for his footballing achievements.
She humiliates him by exposing his evil deeds to everyone there – including Tommy Orpington and his agent.
But Corey’s veneer of innocence slips – and having already been charged with Seb’s murder and bailed he makes a fatal mistake.

He follows Nina home and attacks her.
“Hiya freak,” he says as he tries to force his way into the cafe leaving her terrified.
He began shouting about her being a coward and a “gobby little freak” before asking where Seb was to help her – and she snapped.
Thundering outside to confront him, brave Nina shouted: “A coward? You attacked me and Seb, kicked us on the floor and you call me a coward?”

Verbally tearing him to shreds, Corey continued to attack her calling her “a slutty little gothy freak”.
So she smashed his trophy and he went to attack her – but Roy’s arrival made him stop temporarily.
And as Corey said he was going to hurt Nina, Roy revealed he knew Corey had breached his bail conditions.
Cocky Corey bragged there was no witnesses or CCTV to prove he was there – until the police arrived and arrested him for breaching his bail conditions.
Fans were in tears over Roy saving nine.
One wrote: “‘I should point out you being here is a clear breach of your bail conditions’ Exactly Roy.”
A second said: “Yes! Corey is arrested! Well done Roy!”
Another added: “Roy and Nina’s relationship is one of the best in Coronation Street.”
