Leanne Battersby (played by Jane Danson) has had her world turned upside down on Coronation Street after she learned her son Oliver has mitochondrial disease and it’s incredibly likely he will die in the coming months. The mother-of-one is trying hard to stay positive and is hoping Oliver’s condition will improve. As she struggles to come to terms with Oliver’s condition, Leanne has pushed those closest to her away including partner Nick (Ben Price) and sister Toyah (Georgia Taylor). As an affair between Nick and Toyah has been heavily hinted at in the past few weeks, tonight there was a clue a night of passion between the two could result in an unexpected pregnancy.
As Toyah and Nick are pushed away, it’s looking more likely than ever they will turn to each other for support and a shoulder to cry on.
The pair have never been close in the past but could they fall into bed together as they grieve for young Oliver?
If so, Toyah, who is currently looking to foster a child, could find herself unexpectedly pregnant with Nick’s child.
Toyah has been desperate for children and over the years viewers have seen her try IVF and surrogacy.

Nick meanwhile has always thought of Oliver as his son as he helps to parent the child with Leanne.
As Oliver’s condition has worsened, Nick has been pushed to the sidelines as his father Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) has been by Leanne’s side.
Feeling rejected, Nick would likely welcome some comfort from Toyah and be over the moon if he learned he was going to be a dad.
In tonight’s episode, a hint Toyah could become a mother as Leanne loses her son was dropped as the sisters argued.
As Leanne stepped on one of Oliver’s cars, she screamed out in anger leading Toyah to remark: “Lea, I really think you should talk to someone.”
“Don’t okay! Just don’t because I’ve had it up to here with people saying I have to go into counselling,” Leanne fired back.
A concerned Toyah pressed: “Okay well what about the support group?” but Leanne hit back: “I said don’t!”
While her sister tried to explain she just wanted to help, Leanne spat: “Well you can’t help because you have no idea what I’m going through. You’re not a mother and you never will be!”

Toyah was left speechless by Leanne’s remark and set about repairing Oliver’s toy car that her sister broke, trying to stay calm.
“You’re welcome,” she said placing the car on the kitchen bench but Leanne sneered: “Oh Toyah, come on, I’ve just said I’m sorry, don’t make this about you.”
“You know how much I’ve wanted kids,” Toyah replied fighting back tears as Leanne sighed: “Yeah we all do.
“The IVFs, the surrogacy, I’ve lived through every moment, we all have, and I feel for you that you can’t have kids, I really do. But
you can’t compare it to what I’m going through.”

Toyah answered: “Well, I didn’t realise it was a competition.”
“Well it’s not is it? You can’t grieve for something you never had,” Leanne hit back. “You’ve got no idea what heartbreak is and you know what Toyah, you should be thankful you can’t have kids.”
It’s already been teased things between Toyah, Leanne and Nick will become incredibly tense while boss Iain MacLeod has hinted at a love triangle.
He told press including Express.co.uk: “A classic salacious love triangle is also in there.
“We’ve stripped everything back to what soap originated with – brilliant dialogue played brilliantly by an extremely talented cast.”
Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday on ITV at 7.30pm.
