However, during the latest instalment on Wednesday (June 21) Caleb woke up from the coma leaving his soon looking rather concerned.
"He might not remember much anyway," the doctor told him, but it turns out they were wrong.
"‘I remember exactly what happened,’ Nicky insisted to his son.
"It was you that pushed me."
And viewers were not happy with the revelation – who slammed the storyline as “unbelievable” and “far-fetched.”

"You left me there dying," he pointed out.
It comes after Caleb star William teased a 'huge potential' for Nicky's mum to arrive following his character's brutal attack.

"Caleb had a line talking to Leyla [Harding, played by Roxy Shahidi] about his kids, plural.
"I've never had that discussion with producers or anything but Nicky may have siblings and I may have other kids and there's potential for those characters to come into it and I think it would be nice to flesh it out.
