Coronation Street: Leanne Battersby in pregnancy shock – and Steve McDonald’s the dad!

The paternity plotline looks set to unfold this summer on the ITV soap


Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) is to have a one-night stand with Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) – and end up expecting his baby!


An upcoming storyline on Coronation Street will see Steve have a bust-up with wife Michelle (Kym Marsh) and then have a drunken fling with Leanne.

Steve’s marriage looks set to hit the rocks after he discovers all about Michelle’s recent dalliance with her first love Will. But events take an unexpected turn when Steve seeks solace in the arms of Leanne.

A report in today’s Sun says: “Steve will be left in a tricky situation when he finds out that Leanne is pregnant – and refuses to have an abortion.”

And events look set to get even more complicated when Steve reconciles with Michelle, only for her to decide that she then wants them to have a baby.

Get set for more of Steve’s trademarked eye-popping reaction shots as he deals with the bombshells…
