Colin Lavender was the Mayor of Weatherfield and Guest of Honour at Nick's Bistro when they held a night for the Rotary Club in May 2012. An old council acquaintance of Audrey Roberts', he greeted her with a kiss and commented that he didn't know that the bistro was a time machine as she looked younger every time he saw her. Lewis Archer, Audrey's boyfriend, was not happy with the comment. He was further annoyed when Audrey agreed to sit with Colin at the hotpot meal, his sister having cried off from the engagement with "one of her migraines".
Unfortunately the meal proved to be red hot as Eva Price had put two bottles of tabasco sauce and a packet of chilli powder into the food as revenge against Nick Tilsley when she mistakenly thought that he had slept with Kylie Platt. She doused him with a drink in front of Colin and the guests were also witness to Eva's revelation which ended with David Platt attacking Nick across the mayoral table.
