Leanne will be forced to publicly announce her pregnancy in upcoming episodes of Coronation Street as next week sees Eva and Simon thwart her plan to move to Liverpool.
After Simon hides their tickets and they are forced to book onto a later coach, Eva takes the opportunity to tell Nick that Leanne loves him but she is pregnant. She urges Nick to go after her and stop her from leaving. During a conversation about how Nick is the love of Leanne’s life, Simon manages to ring Nick in secret so that he hears everything.
In dramatic scenes, Nick boards the coach to tell Leanne that he knows about the baby and he wants her to stay. She does, but later lies to Nick when he asks who the father of the baby is, telling him it was a one-night stand with a stranger. Nick attends the first scan with her.
Nick tells Leanne he wants to be a father both to Simon and her unborn child and suggests that they lie about the baby’s paternity and tell everybody it is his – a proposition Leanne says she will think about.
Before she comes to a decision, Tracy approaches Leanne while they’re at the Rovers. She asks her when the baby is due in front of everybody, and Steve watches on in horror.
Who will Leanne say is the father? Will she tell the truth and drop Steve in it or will she go along with Nick’s plan to pretend the baby is his?
