Jane Danson Shares Her Views on Nick & Leanne’s Coronation Street Future
Actress Jane Danson, star of England’s most popular soap opera “Coronation Street”, was recently interviewed by the UK’s The SUN and shared her views on where her character Leanne Battersby and beau Nick Tilsley will develop in the show.
The fictitious pair finally started a romance back in 2010, albeit an illicit one as her character is still married.
As per Danson, the character Nick offers Leanne a comfortable life as a kept woman or mistress.
She’ll have a measure of happiness and be provided for. In true soap opera fashion, Leanne’s son decides to live with her and her sugar-daddy.
Jane said of Leanne getting back with Nick: “Well, after everything that’s happened with Simon and Peter, Leanne is just craving stability and a normal family life – and I think she sees this as an opportunity to get that.
“Nick has got his business, he’s got a secure place to live, and he loves her.
“On paper, it’s all perfect. But the question is whether Leanne is just settling for him, or whether she actually loves him in return. That’s going to be the main issue as they move forward.
“When Nick confesses his undying love for Leanne in the episodes coming up, she’s the one in control.
“She’s got to decide whether this is best for Simon and whether Nick can provide the continuity and family life that she’s craving. In the end, she decides that he can and it would be a good idea.”
“It all gets a bit messy.”
Here in Canada, you can watch Coronation Street week days on CBC from 6:00pm to 7:00pm and on Sundays from 7:00am to 12:00pm.
