Leanne flees as Nick declares his love in Coronation Street
There’s heartbreak on the cobbles in Coronation Street as Leanne makes the life-changing decision to go into hiding with Simon – after evil drugs boss Harvey discovers that she has grassed him up to the police!
“Leanne faced the worst possible trauma when her young son Oliver passed away, so she can’t even think about losing Simon on top of that,” concedes actress Jane Danson, who plays the grieving mother, in this week’s Inside Soap. “Leanne will do absolutely anything to protect him, even if that means sacrificing her future happiness with Nick.”
In the lead-up to her big decision, Leanne already knows that betraying Harvey will cost her dearly. But when Harvey finally realises that someone has grassed him up to the police, rather than exhausting her energy trying to divert his suspicions, Leanne finally fesses up – and reveals that she ratted him out! And Harvey’s in for a shock when the Battersby in Leanne comes out fighting…
“It’s all bravado, as really she is very frightened,” says Jane. “But Leanne always has some fight in her, even when there’s hardly anything left in the tank!”
Harvey leaves Leanne in absolutely no doubt that she’s a dead woman walking. With that, Leanne concedes that the only way to ensure Simon’s safety is for them to move away from Weatherfield, and it’s with a heavy heart that she tells Toyah why they must go.
Meanwhile, after Nick hears about Leanne’s predicament, he calls round to the flat and confesses his love. However, as much as Leanne yearns to fall back into Nick’s arms, staying in the area is simply not an option while Harvey is still roaming the streets, gunning for her blood.
“Leanne still loves Nick and wants to be with him, but he has Sam – a son that he needs to put first – just as she has to with Simon,” concludes Jane. “Leanne is sacrificing her happiness for her child, which is the right choice.”
After tearful Leanne tells Nick it’s too late for them, he realises that he has to make a heartbreaking decision of his own: stand by the woman he loves, or be a proper father to little Sam? As Leanne makes good on her promise to leave, what will Nick do?
