Last week, she went to the police for help and they forced her to become an undercover informant.

But soon, Harvey will discover the truth – and want deadly revenge on Leanne.

Actor Will told The Sun: “Leanne’s packing up to run away, but before she can leave the flat, Harvey kicks the door in.

“It was good to burst in like that. Jane [Danson, who plays Leanne] jumped out of her skin!

“Harvey calls her ‘a grass’ and goes to bundle her into the car to take her somewhere to finish her off. He says: ‘After you’re dead, I’ll make sure Simon’s taken care of – he’ll be in my little family,’ which means he’ll be selling drugs for Harvey.”

In next week’s scenes, one of Harvey’s dealers, Ned, turns up at Leanne’s flat and to her horror, he explains he’s expecting a delivery and will be using her flat to bag up the drugs.

When Simon lets himself in, Ned introduces himself and Leanne feels sick to her stomach. When Leanne quizzes Ned about the drugs delivery, he becomes suspicious of her motives.

Leanne and Simon manage to convince Ned that they’re on his side. She makes out she has to go shopping and ends up leaving Simon alone with Ned.
