Coronation Street: Leanne said goodbye to Simon

Viewers will know that Leanne has been off on a retreat with the Institute over the past couple of weeks meaning that she had no idea about Simon’s plans for the future.

Returning home last night, Leanne explained that she’d stayed at the retreat for an extra night because a workshop overran. She was told to keep her phone off.

She wasn’t happy to hear that Simon was heading off to work on the yacht with Peter, complaining that nobody had told her.

Nick then revealed that he’d asked Rowan to pass the message on…

After Leanne waved Simon off in the taxi, she then logged onto her laptop and told someone that she missed them.
