A popular character Coronation Street’s Leanne Battersby will discover that she is pregnant in a bombshell new storyline this summer.Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) will be stunned to learn that she’s expecting a baby after she has a shocking one-night stand with Rovers boss Steve McDonald, according to a report in The Sun today.
It’s thought that the unlikely pair will sleep together after Steve (Simon Gregson) splits from his wife Michelle Connor in the wake of finding out that she cheated on him with Will Chatterton. Although Steve regrets going on the rebound and later reunites with Michelle, his reckless behaviour reportedly comes back to haunt him when Leanne drops her baby bombshell.
Corrie sources have revealed that Steve wants Leanne to terminate the pregnancy, but she refuses and leaves him in complete turmoil as Michelle (Kym Marsh) is bound to discover the truth sooner or later.
Doctors had previously told Leanne that she would find it difficult to conceive, as one of her fallopian tubes was damaged when she fell down a set of stairs and suffered a miscarriage in 2011. Leanne is sure to want to cling onto what could be her only chance to have a baby of her own, but will she be able to deal with the inevitable drama that will surely follow?
