Coronation Street: Leanne and Toyah’s conversation about ‘replacing’ Natasha leaves viewers appalled

Natasha died in Monday's episode

Coronation Street viewers were left appalled by Leanne and Toyah’s conversation about ‘replacing’ Natasha so soon after her death.

Last week, Natasha was shot by drug lord Harvey, who escaped prison. Harvey was after revenge on Leanne for testifying against him in court, but shot Natasha thinking she was Leanne.

Natasha was taken to hospital, however she died during her second operation. As Nick and Sam waited for news, the doctor told Sam that his mother had died.

In last night’s scenes (Wednesday, October 28) Sam wanted to go and see his mum at the funeral directors.

Nick was unsure at first but when Sam said he needed to see her to say goodbye, Nick agreed.
