Spoilers: Leanne loses it over Oliver’s death in big outburst in Corrie
Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) refuses to give up any shred of hope that she can fight for further treatment options for her dying son Oliver in Coronation Street – but when she ends up seeking publicity for her case through the local press, one question about the reality of the tragic situation causes her to lose it.
With Leanne already having a go at Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) for apologising on her behalf when she lets rip at Oliver’s appointed guardian Wendy who has been assigned to their case for the final court hearing, another reminder of the bleakness of what is ahead leaves her reeling.
Suki, a journalist friend of Natasha’s, tells Nick and Leanne she’d like to help by telling their story in a bid to boost fundraising. Leanne talks candidly about Oliver’s condition but when Suki mentions his impending death, Leanne loses it.
Apologetic about the article in the Gazette, Natasha (Rachel Leskovac) tells Nick she’d like to make a donation of £20k to Oliver’s appeal.
However when Nick doesn’t share this offer with Leanne, she finds out in her own way and she is tunned to realise that Nick doesn’t think it’s worth it – is he giving up on Oliver?
Nick confides in Gail that he fears Leanne is fighting a losing battle but he can’t tell her as she would see it as a betrayal. Gail urges him to be honest with her.
But how will Leanne react to this? Viewers are aware that Oliver’s story will have a devastating outcome but Leanne refuses to give up the battle, unprepared to lose her son – and she thinks everyone else is just abandoning the cause.
As she goes this alone, without people by her side, will losing Oliver finish her off?
Or can Nick find a way to support the woman he loves, despite knowing that her legal battle and her ongoing turmoil is futile?
