Coronation Street offers the first hints of trouble ahead for Nicola Rubinstein and her evil father Pat Phelan tonight (October 13).

Nicola (Nicola Thorp) has decided to give Phelan a chance since discovering that he's her long-lost dad, ignoring warnings from Yasmeen Nazir that he's not to be trusted.

Of course, viewers know that Nicola is making a terrible mistake by trusting the villain – but could the truth be about to dawn on her tonight?

Friday night's Corrie double bill sees Nicola pay a visit to Lydia, who's an old friend of her family.

As the pair catch up, Lydia can't hide her obvious shock and dismay when she discovers that Nicola's real father is Phelan.

Later on, Nicola can't resist asking Phelan (Connor McIntyre) why Lydia was so horrified by his true identity, but he's quick to insist that he has no idea.

It's clear that Nicola is no fool, though, so could she look into this further? Is there yet another Phelan-related secret still to be discovered? And is Lydia another character that Phelan might have to start worrying about?

Corrie's recent autumn trailer showed footage of Phelan losing his temper with Nicola following the revelation that she's pregnant with Gary Windass's baby, so perhaps she'll start seeing his true colours sooner rather than later...

Coronation Street airs tonight (October 13) at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
