Coronation Street: Leanne tells the father of her baby – “I’m keeping our child”

But who is the mystery dad being confronted in next week's episodes of Corrie?


Pregnant Leanne Battersby will confront the father of her unborn child in next week’s episodes of Coronation Street – and tell him that she’s keeping their baby.


Both Steph and Simon will rumble Leanne’s pregnancy secret, all of which leaves her determined to reveal all to the man with whom she had a recent one-night stand.

In the episode of Corrie to be broadcast on Friday 22 July, Leanne will be seen phoning the daddy, summoning him outside and delivering her baby bombshell.

The shellshocked guy then rounds on Leanne and calls her irresponsible. But as a row escalates, Leanne assures him that she doesn’t want his money and doesn’t expect him to play any part in their child’s life.


After expressing his horror at the news that she intends to keep the baby, Leanne explains to the father how this could be her last chance to have a baby. Despondent, he’s forced to agree.

But will Leanne and her mystery man be able to keep their baby secret under wraps? Or will word of what’s happened soon spread across Weatherfield?
