Leanne says her goodbyes to Weatherfield in tonight’s first Corrie
Eva begs Leanne to reconsider her decision to leave, but Leanne is adamant that a fresh start is what she needs. Eva quietly suggests to Simon that he should hide the coach tickets. Leanne then calls in the Bistro to say her goodbyes. Nick is gutted to realise she’s moving to Liverpool for good but tells her if things don’t work out, she knows where he is.
Michelle also tells Leanne that she’ll be sorry to see her go and reveals that she’s pregnant. Feigning surprise, Leanne congratulates her. Relieved she’s going, Steve wishes Leanne luck.
Having said an emotional goodbye to Eva and Ken, Leanne and Simon leave for the coach station. However, when Eva gets a call from Leanne telling her that she’s lost her tickets and had to rebook a later coach, Eva forms another plan. Cornering Nick, she reveals that Leanne has missed her coach, explaining that Leanne loves him deeply but feels she can’t be honest with him as she’s expecting a baby…
Meanwhile, as a celebration of Kylie’s birthday, David buys a garden swing for Max and Lily. Having built the swing, the family watch in amusement as Bethany tries it out and the swing collapses, leaving Bethany in a heap on the grass. Craig takes a photo and posts it online. Later, Bethany receives a parcel containing some diet pills and quickly stuffs them in her bag.
Elsewhere, Sharif and Yasmeen arrive home and are utterly thrilled to find their grandchildren have arranged a surprise 45th wedding anniversary party. Sharif makes a speech and announces to Yasmeen that he’s booked a holiday – the honeymoon they never had. However, he’s interrupted by the arrival of their old friend Sonia, who clearly upset and explains that her husband has thrown her out. While a concerned Yasmeen heads off to make Sonia a cup of tea, grim-faced Sharif makes it clear that he’s unimpressed by her surprise visit.
Also today, Michelle books an appointment at the doctors to discuss her pregnancy and insists Steve must accompany her. Steve reluctantly agrees.
