Warren Jackson was born 24th November, 1980 in Manchester. He is the son of Peter and Jasmine Jackson who were friends of Christopher Quinten who played Brian Tilsley in Coronation Street from 1978 to 1989. Chris suggested to the production team that Warren should be picked to play the part of baby Nick Tilsley in the programme when his character was born on 31st December 1980.
The production team agreed, and Warren was in the show from 1981 until 1996. He left to concentrate on his GCSEs, expecting to return shortly afterwards, but he was replaced with Adam Rickitt.
