Former 'Coronation Street' husband and wife Leanne Battersby and Peter Barlow are reportedly set to embark on a steamy affair just weeks before Leanne's wedding to Peter Barlow
'Coronation Street's Leanne Battersby could be set to cheat on fiance Peter Barlow just weeks before their wedding.
The feisty former prostitute - played by actress Jane Danson - reportedly falls into bed with former husband Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) after she becomes tired of supporting Peter (Chris Gasgoyne) through his battle with alcoholism.
A show insider revealed: "Leanne has really tried to fight the chemistry she shares with Nick. But the feelings she has are so intense. For such a long time she's been Peter's lifeline, supporting him through his booze battle.
"Underneath it all though, Leanne is a naughty girl - and could be set to fall back into her old ways in spectacular style."
However, when Peter's dad Ken Barlow (Bill Roache) catches the cheating couple in the act, he is in two minds whether to confess all to his son, fearing it could set back his battle with the booze.
The source added to Inside Soap magazine: "Ken knows that it's thanks to Leanne that Peter has managed to put his life back together after his troubles. He's desperately worried about how both Peter and his little grandson, Simon (Alex Bain), could be affected by this."
