Coronation Street's Leanne Battersby will be left "visibly shaken" after evil Karl Munro grabs her by the wrists and threatens her in the street
Coronation Street's Leanne Battersby will be left "visibly shaken" after cruel Karl Munro threatens her.
The twisted firestarter - who is played by John Michie - turns to desperate measures in an attempt to stop the blonde businesswoman from repeatedly telling her mum and Karl's fiancee Stella Price (Michelle Collins) she thinks he is a "dosser and a layabout".
Jane Danson - who plays Leanne - said: "Karl threatens her in the street, telling her to stop poisoning Stella against him or she'll regret it.
"He grabs her by the wrist and she tells him she isn't scared of him, but when he walks off she's visibly shaken. He's quite a big bloke and quite strong so physically he could scare her.
"Leanne's always seen Karl for what he really is - a dosser and a layabout - and she calls a spade a spade. Could that put her in line to be the next victim of Karl? I'm hoping not ... but who knows?"
Leanne doesn't know the evil cabbie burnt down her mum's pub, the Rovers Return, and killed Sunita Alahan (Shobna Gulati), and Jane thinks it would be better that she didn't find out for a while because she would tell her mum straight away.
Jane added to Soaplife magazine: "She'd find it hard not to say to Stella that she told her so!
"I'd like to hope that the truth doesn't come out for a while, though ... it would be so interesting to just let it run and keep everybody on the Street in the dark.
"There's so much potential for Karl to do even more damage. The seed has definitely been planted."
