Where did Natasha Blakeman go in Coronation Street?

Natasha was forced to leave Weatherfield after landing an opportunity to open a new hair salon.

She had to leave before Christmas to get the staff trained up.

At first, her son Sam was going to go with her – but then he ran away to his dad’s apartment. Sam tried to convince Nick to let him stay with him.

However, when Leanne ruled it out and Natasha said no, it looked like Sam had no option but to go.

He now lives in Natasha’s flat for the three months while she is in London.

And she will definitely be back – so could the former lovers reunite?
