Police officers swoop on Coronation Street this week after Leanne (Jane Danson) reveals all to officers about the physical abuse she’s suffered at the hands of adoptive son Simon (Alex Bain).
Following her visit to the police station, a guilty Leanne agrees to let Simon have the day off school. He’s delighted, yet completely unaware of his mum’s inner turmoil.
Having chosen a DVD, Simon snuggles up to Leanne on the sofa. But they’re interrupted by the sound of the police arriving on the scene. As realisation hits about what’s going on, Simon stares at him mum with a look of pure malevolence on his face…
Watch the scene from Friday’s episode below. And beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all this week’s drama on Coronation Street.
