Craig Alexander Harris (previously Nelson), played by Richard Fleeshman, was a fictional character on Coronation Street between November 2002 and October 2006.

Storylines

Craig was the son of Angela and Tommy Harris. The family moved into 6 Coronation Street as the 'Nelsons', under the witness protection programme. Craig's mum Angela had witnessed a murder in their home city of Sheffield and the family moved to Weatherfield. He later used his real surname of 'Harris' once the family's cover was blown and they decided to stay in Weatherfield.

When Craig's sister Katy started dating Martin Platt - her father's friend who was 20 years older than her - it caused Tommy and Angela to split up. Upset at this, Craig altered the brakes on Martin's car, hoping to split Martin and Katy up and bring back peace to his family. Unfortunately, Katy got in the car with Martin. Craig told his father and they raced to the rescue. Martin decided not to press charges once he found out the truth.

Tommy and Angela got back together when they realised how much their problems were affecting Craig. Craig started dating Rosie Webster, and the two became goths. They decided to sleep together, but at the last minute thought it would be best not to. However, Tommy found a condom Craig had been planning to use and thinking his son had slept with Rosie, punched him in the face.

Despite this, Craig was devastated when his father was killed. He found out Katy had committed manslaughter after discovering Tommy had lied to her over Martin having an affair, which caused her to abort her and Martin's child. Katy confronted Tommy and he made her so mad she grabbed a wrench and hit him with it. Angela took the blame for the kill, despite seeing what Katy had done and is now in prison. Katy, a diabetic, committed suicide by eating lots of sugar.

Craig then lived with grandfather Keith Appleyard, who, having decided that Craig had suffered enough problems, chose to move to Weatherfield rather than taking Craig back to Sheffield. He broke up with Rosie for a while after she made an insensitive remark about his family, but they put their differences behind them and got back together again. They then decided to have sex and slept together despite being under age and Keith and his girlfriend Audrey Roberts caught Rosie trying to sneak out of the house the morning afterwards. Rosie's parents found out on New Year's Eve when Sally Webster went round to wish the pair happy New Year. Craig answered the door in a dressing gown, and, seeing Rosie's dress lying on the sofa, went upstairs to find a naked Rosie in Craig's bed.

The pair were banned from seeing each other, despite protesting heavily that they were deeply in love. Later, Sally and Kevin Webster warmed towards Craig after seeing how devoted he was to Rosie, and Kevin offered Craig an apprenticeship at his garage (incidentally, this is where Craig's father worked and was murdered).

Craig was friends with David Platt and had a part time job working in the Corner Shop.

Craig was devastated when Keith told him that Charlie Stubbs was evicting them from their house and they were going to move away somewhere new for a fresh start as Craig did not want to leave Rosie.

Craig and girlfriend Rosie hatched a plan to run away to Berlin together to start a new life. When they were just about to get onto the train, Rosie froze. She told Craig that she could not leave her family, so after a long, tearful goodbye, Craig tore himself away from his sweetheart and got onto the train, leaving Paris, Weatherfield and his longterm girlfriend behind him.
