We saw him last on Coronation Street in 2007 but tonight, Audrey's son Stephen Reid, got a mention in the show.
Stephen is Gail's half-brother and the uncle to Nick, David and Sarah-Lou, who's in Milan, working for one of Stephen's businesses.
With thanks to Corripedia, we also remember that when Stephen was born, Audrey had to give him up for adoption.
Stephen turned up in the Street for the first time in 1996 to get to know Audrey and his half-sister, Gail. During his stay, Nick was
sent by Gail to live with him as Nick's relationship with his mother
became stained and Stephen offered him a job in Canada, which Nick accepted.
Could it be time for Stephen Reid to reappear?
