Coronation Street star Rachel Leskovac has revealed what’s next for Sam after the death of her character Natasha.

Last week, Natasha was shot by drug lord Harvey, who had escaped from prison.

Harvey was after revenge on Leanne Battersby for testifying against him in court and shot Natasha thinking she was Leanne, as they both had the same Morticia costume on.

She was taken to hospital and in tonight’s scenes (Monday, October 25) Sam was told his mum had been shot.

When asked if Natasha has faith in Nick as a father, she said: “She doesn’t really say much to Nick, but there’s a moment when she looks at him and just says his name. Hopefully in that moment what will come across is that feeling of knowing.

“The way she looks at him and his response is basically letting her know that he’s going to be alright.

“I think she does trust that he will be a good dad to Sam despite what they’ve been through. I don’t think she’s ever doubted his love for him, but perhaps sometimes his priorities.

“But sometimes it takes something really big to happen for people to step up and she doesn’t doubt that he will.”
