Enduringly popular couple Nick and Waverley had an unpromising start. Wave had set her sights on handsome Stuart Nielson, but decided to use slothful student Nick Harrison to lose her virginity.
But they became devoted to each other and when Wave thought she was 'pregnant as anything' in 1995, Nick asked her to marry him. Then she found out she was mistaken and he took it back.
Their relationship took a swerve when Nick and Rachel got married to protest student bursary cuts. A hurt Wave fled to Australia where she stayed for a couple of years.
She did return and Nick and Wave were back together and engaged (again). The happy couple's bliss was threatened by Wave's attempts to mould Nick into the successful businessman she knew he could be.
Things came to a head when she cut Nick's hair off - while he slept! Horrified, he called the wedding off! The couple eventually married (in 2002) and is expecting their first child together.
