‘Coronation Street’ viewers will see Leanne Battersby preparing to leave Weatherfield in next week’s episodes - but will the mum-of-one go through with her plan?
Leanne has been wrestling with her conscious since accidentally getting pregnant, after a one night stand with Steve McDonald, and she’ll now resolve to leave the Street for a new start.
However, Eva Price has other ideas, and after seeing the opportunity to convince Leanne to stay, tells Simon to hide her coach tickets for Liverpool.
When, after a series of emotional goodbyes, Leanne realises they’re missing, she calls Eva and rebooks a later coach.
Her half-sister then meddles some more and goes to Nick, revealing that Leanne loves him but doesn’t want to stay because of her pregnancy.
Meanwhile, Leanne prepares to get a later coach, which Nick then boards in a bid to stop her from leaving.
The pregnancy is a shock not just for Leanne, but also Steve, whose wife Michelle is also expecting a baby.
Earlier this year, ‘Corrie’ producer Kate Oates revealed that the storyline is one of three that will dominate in the run-up to Christmas.
While Michelle is currently unaware that Steve is the father of Leanne’s unborn baby, this is soapland, so it probably won’t be too long before the truth comes out…
These ‘Coronation Street’ scenes air from Monday 22 August. Catch up on all the latest soap news and spoilers here.
