Next week on the Cobbles, Leanne Battersby will drop a big baby bombshell on the father when she tells him that she is expecting his baby.
Since finding out that she is pregnant, Leanne has been trying to overcome the news and keep it under wraps from her loved ones and Nick.
Next week on Coronation Street, Leanne will reveal her baby news to her friend Steph Britton (Tisha Merry) when she sees her looking worse for wear at the Bistro. But wanting to keep the news under wraps, Leanne tells Steph not to tell anyone, but she knows that she is going to have to reveal the news to her step son Simon. But it’s not that easy.
Simon has become aware of her unusual behaviour and he suspects that she may have cancer, but Leanne quickly responds to his worries and tells him that she hasn’t got cancer, but in fact that she is pregnant and tells him that he won’t be treated any differently when the baby is born.
But Leanne knows that she is going to have to tell the father of her baby the truth and therefore she rings him and drops the baby bombshell.
The meeting with the secret dad doesn’t go as planned as he calls her irresponsible for using him to get pregnant but Leanne quickly diffuses the conversation and tells him that she doesn’t expect him to be there for their child, but the secret fella is shocked to the core that she plans to keep the baby. But with Leanne breaking the news to the father, how long will it be before his identity is revealed? How long will it be before her baby news is revealed on the street?
Coronation Street airs these scenes on Friday 22nd July at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
