NICKY immediately caught Gabby Thomas' eye upon his arrival in Home Farm.
The hunky nanny has an important announcement for her in upcoming Emmerdale scenes.
With Kim Tate taking both of them under her wing, Gabby Thomas (portrayed by Rosie Bentham) and Dawn Fletcher (Olivia Bromley) needed their children to be taken care of.
And although the latter chose to head back to the vet surgery and was even given an exciting job opportunity by Rhona Goskirk, Gabby remained determined to impress Kim.
As a result, Home Farm welcomed a new employee in the form of Nicky (Lewis Cope) who was hired as a nanny.
Nicky instantly hit it off with Dawn and Gabby's children – and the latter was quickly charmed by his good looks.

However, in scenes due on ITV next week, Nicky backtracks and makes a shocking confession.
Gabby is thrilled to learn the attraction she feels for Nicky is mutual.
But as a true professional, Nicky shows restraint and refuses to cross that line.

Many of them have chosen to keep a close eye on Nicky, believing him to be too good to be true.
This is mostly due to Nicky's past being shrouded in mystery as he seemed to appear in the eponymous village out of nowhere.
However, actor Lewis Cope revealed more about his character's history during a recent interview.
"Nicky's a great character. He's very relatable, likeable, and I'm just having fun with him", he said before moving on to Nicky's experience with children which helped bag the job in Home Farm.
"When Nicky was 16 his mam passed away, and he's the oldest of six – and he's basically looked after the kids since they were growing up. So he had a lot of experience with kids, and that's what got him into nannying."
