Nick and Peter’s past
Nick and Leanne have had an on and off relationship since they were teenagers.
However, between being with Nick, Leanne had a relationship with Peter and became a mother figure to his son, Simon.
Peter and Leanne married in 2010, but they eventually split up and, for a while, Leanne went between the two men.
In 2012, Leanne and Nick went to marry for the second time. But before the ceremony, she went to Peter’s flat to see if there was any chance of them trying again.
When Peter’s girlfriend Carla overheard, Leanne decided to go through with the wedding after all. However her half-sister Eva announced the real reason why she was late, causing Nick to call off the wedding.
They eventually made up and remarried in 2013. Although they have since divorced, they got back together in 2018.
