Coronation Street: What else is coming up for Leanne?

As well as Oliver being ill, it looks like Leanne could be facing drama with her boyfriend Nick when he runs into his ex-girlfriend Natasha Blakeman.

Earlier this month it was revealed actress Rachel Leskovac would be returning to the cobbles after 10 years.

A chance encounter at the hospital with Natasha will put extra strain on Nick and Leanne’s already fragile relationship.

Nick and Leanne are struggling with Oliver’s diagnosis and Nick is finding it hard to know how to help Leanne.

As the stepdad, Nick will begin to feel increasingly sidelined as Leanne and Steve are forced to make difficult decisions about their son’s treatment.

But in early autumn Nick is surprised to run into Natasha at the hospital. The pair catch up on news of the last decade but Nick is reluctant to tell Leanne about his chance meeting.

Some fans have already predicted Natasha will return with Nick’s child.

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
