Coronation Street actress Jane Danson has teased that soap fans will see the return of the ‘old Leanne’ in upcoming episodes.
The 42-year-old star has played the role of Leanne Battersby since 1997, taking a break between 2000 and 2004.
The Battersby family were dubbed the “Neighbours From Hell” and made an immediate impact on the long-running show’s loyal audience, but Leanne has certainly changed over the years.
Not only has she matured, but she’s also been through some very difficult times – with the worst being the death of her son Oliver.
Leanne is currently embroiled in drug-related drama thanks to her other son Simon – who got involved in some dodgy dealings with thug Harvey Gaskell (Will Mellor).
