Coronation Street’s Leanne hits Simon as grief sends her on downward spiral

Coronation Street fans are set to see Leanne Tilsley (Jane Danson) really struggling with her grief, wasting money on psychic readings.

Meanwhile, Simon Barlow (Alex Bain) has been getting up to some major trouble, dealing drugs for his dodgy friends.

Coronation Street spoilers reveal that Leanne starts to book another session with Crystal Moon, but Simon soon appears.

She quickly ends the call, but Simon is left feeling a little suspicious.

He returns home to find her fast asleep on the sofa, clutching Oliver's feather and with Crystal Moon on the television.

Simon watches on with some concern, as his suspicions grow.

Later on, he confronts Leanne with her phone records and points out how much money she's been wasting on premium rate calls to a psychic who is just fooling her into thinking she's in contact with her dead son.

But how will she react?

As the week goes on, Leanne admits to Simon that her grief for Oliver is only getting worse, not better.

Meanwhile, Jacob (Jack James Ryan) offers Simon another drug dealing job.

Despite some bad experiences, Simon promises to think about it.

Before long, Leanne finds another feather and smiles, believing that it's a gift from Oliver.

Simon calls up Jacob and says he's not going to do the drug delivery, and will find another way to pay him back instead.

Jacob is clearly annoyed and calls his boss.

Later, Leanne shows Nick (Ben Price) the feathers and tells him they're a gift from Oliver, leaving Nick worried about her state of mind.

She's offended, and Simon orders him to get out.

Things come to a head in the final episode of the week.

Leanne shows Simon another feather, asserting that it's Oliver's way of letting her know that he's fine.

Simon is left pleased that her spirits have been lifted.

But outside, she drops one of the feathers and almost gets knocked over by Mary as she runs after it down the street.

Nick is left concerned about her behaviour.

Soon, Brian Packham (Peter Gunn) gives Leanne a rubbish bag, saying Simon had left it in the recycling bin.

She's shocked to find a ripped pillow inside.

Furious, she rages at Simon and then slaps him.

Could she have pushed things too hard?

And will she be able to manage her grief going forwards?
