Coronation Street viewers call out obvious blunder in Leanne’s whereabouts lie

Leanne has been pretending to be in France

| Updated:

Coronation Street fans have questioned how Simon and Toyah haven’t figured out Leanne isn’t in France after spotting a major clue.

Before Christmas, Leanne told her family she would be going to stay in France for a while with her mum Stella and sister Eva.

However she has actually been staying in her flat by herself.

In last night’s episode of Corrie (Wednesday, January 7) Leanne listened to a voicemail from her oldest son Simon.

She soon made a call to Dr Gaddas asking for a prescription of sleeping pills. But when the doctor asked Leanne to come and see her, she hung up.

Later, Simon ran into Dr Gaddas and explained his mum was in France. But she realised something was off and called into Leanne’s flat to check on her.

The doctor soon prescribed her some sleeping pills.

After chatting to Kelly, Simon tried to call Leanne again. However it ended up going to voicemail and he left her a message.

But fans are questioning how Leanne’s family hasn’t figured out Leanne isn’t abroad, as there would be no change to her dialling tone.

When calling a mobile number which is an another country, typically the dialling tone will change.

As Simon left the voicemail, Leanne took a couple of sleeping pills.

Later this week Simon goes to get changed for his date with Kelly, but he’s horrified to find Leanne passed out on the sofa next to a bottle of sleeping pills and calls an ambulance.

An embarrassed Leanne admits she took one pill too many and had no intention of harming herself.

Simon is horrified when he learns his mum never went to France and has been alone in the flat for weeks.

As Leanne breaks down, Kelly is upset when Simon fails to show up for their date.

With his focus now on Leanne, Simon calls Kelly to apologise before telling his mum it’s time he looked after her for a change.

When Nick asks about the ambulance, Simon covers for Leanne as she continues to hide away.
