Nick and Leanne made the surprise decision to reunite earlier this week, sparking disapproval from almost everyone around them.
However, speaking on This Morning today (June 29), Price explained that Nick realises Leanne (Jane Danson) is merely on the rebound following her split from husband Peter.

Asked whether the romance is true love from Leanne's perspective, the actor replied: "No, it's not. He knows, though - he does know. I've got a business, I don't drink, I've got my own bistro, I can do a great cappuccino - I'm stability, aren't I?"
He continued: "She's got a child now, and I said, 'Fine, I'll take you, I'll take the child'. [Nick knows] she loves Peter, but that's part of the drama, isn't it?"
Price said that he also believes Peter (Chris Gascoyne) is not over Leanne, despite his new relationship with Carla Connor (Alison King).
He commented: "I think he still loves Leanne. [But] no-one wants to mess with Carla!"
Coronation Street fans will see the story continue in the coming days, building up to Carla and Peter's four-month break from Weatherfield. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
