Corrie viewers will see Leanne pack the rest of her things and tell Nick she’s going to stay with Eva in France. 

Nick is devastated by Leanne’s revelation.

Will he let her go?

Viewers watched Leanne remain in denial about Oliver’s condition for months following his diagnosis. 

Insisting he was going to get better, Leanne even launched a legal battle to force the hospital to keep him alive. 

And when the court ruled that Oliver’s life support should be turned off, Leanne launched an appeal to save her son. 

Leanne then hit breaking point when her lawyer Imran refused to help her with her appeal, and barricaded herself in his office to try and force him to help her.

But when the doctors revealed Oliver had begun bleeding into his own breathing tube after being resuscitated while Leanne’s legal battle continued, Steve managed to convince Leanne to let him die peacefully. 

But her antics have driven a wedge in between her and ex Nick, who she dumped after realising he didn’t support her efforts to keep Oliver alive. 

Next week’s episodes of the soap will see Leanne tell Nick that she’d welcome his support at the funeral but that after that they’re over and they’ll have to work out the terms of their separation.
