An under-pressure Leanne will decide to move to Liverpool to be with her sister Toyah in next week’s Coronation Street when the stress of keeping her baby secret becomes too much.
Corrie fans have already seen Leanne reveal to Steve that he is the father of her unborn child. But when Leanne realises that he’s blabbed to Liz about what’s going on, Leanne decides that enough’s enough.
Upcoming scenes will find Leanne spelling it out to Liz that neither she nor Steve will have anything to do with the baby. And later on, she also informs Simon that they’re leaving Weatherfield altogether!
In the episodes to be broadcast on Friday 19 August, a horrified Simon confronts Nick, hoping he can shed some light on Leanne’s sudden decision to up sticks.
Secretly begging Simon to go along with her story, Leanne concocts a yarn about merely going to Liverpool for a few week because Toyah needs a shoulder to cry on. Nick’s supportive and offers to look after Simon while she’s away, all of which leaves Leanne feeling consumed with guilt.
Opting to put the ball in his court, Leanne later tells Simon that he can either go to Liverpool with her or stay in Weatherfield with Nick. So what will Simon decide to do? And will Leanne end up going for good?
