Nathan Cooper (previously Harding) first appeared in April 2005 when Kevin Webster was looking for a new mechanic, following the death of Tommy Harris. Nathan left after breaking up with his girlfriend Frankie Baldwin largely to do with the fact her ex-husband, Danny Baldwin was still in the picture. In his final scene he punched Danny as he left the cobbles. He had previously romanced factory machinist Joanne Jackson and Tracy Barlow, he also enjoyed a brief flirtation with hairdresser Maria Sutherland in the Rovers. His fiery temperament was revealed when he almost blinded Ashley Peacock when they argued over their women while giving him boxing lessons.
"Nice hotel! is there a mini-bar?" (First line, to Tracy Barlow)
