Ben Price: "I once spent eight hours fighting Peter Barlow"

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog January 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

In this week's Inside Soap magazine there's a good interview with Ben Price, who plays Nick Tilsley in Coronation Street.  Ben talks about Nick and Peter's punch-ups on the cobbles. He says that as he and Chris Gascoyne, who plays Peter, aren't getting any younger, their fight scenes take a lot more effort.

Ben says: "Recently we spent eight hours filming a fight scene and we aren't getting any younger, so by the end of it we were quite tired of trying to hit each other!"
Nick's got much on his mind next week in Corrie after Simon is injured in a car accident as Nick and Peter are arguing.  Simon turns out to be okay after a check-up in hospital but it really brings home to Peter how mich he loves Simon and wants to make peace with him.

Ben also says that his two children in real-life don't watch him on TV. "They're not particularly interested!" he says.
