Coronation Street Wiki


Gail looks after Tommy for the day but David is annoyed when he follows him around. To "prove" himself, he orders Tommy to shoplift from the corner shop. Tommy pays for some sweets and crisps and pretends he nicked them. David's none the wiser. Leanne is bundled into a car on Arnica Street by Jez Quigley's henchman Chris Jacobs and taken to his flat. She is frightened of Jez, but when he suggests she stay just one hour she agrees. She tries to be pleasant to him without encouraging him. He insists that she is the love of his life and swears he's a changed man. He gets angry when, once the hour is up, she still refuses to go out with him and turns violent. Rita feels uneasy when Anthony puts his arm around her. She is confused by her feelings. Leanne escapes Jez by warning him that if he hurts her, the police will be onto him straight away. He tells her that he's gone off her and screams at her to get out. Terrified, Leanne runs from the flat as fast as her legs can carry her.
