Jane Danson: No happy ending for Corrie couple Leanne and Nick

Coronation Street’s Nick Tilsley will not endure a happy ending with his on-screen lover Leanne Battersby, the actress playing her has revealed.

Jane Danson, 38, suggested that her soap fiance’s exit is likely to be related to Steve McDonald telling everyone he is the father of her baby.

Nick, played by Ben Price on the ITV soap, will leave the show in the next couple of months but Jane said she was still in the dark over the terms of his departure.

Appearing on ITV’s Lorraine, Jane said: “Ben and I have discussed it and he’s chosen not to know until we get the scripts.

In January, Corrie confirmed Ben, 45, was quitting the soap to spend more time with his family.

The actor said he left with nothing but good memories, but wanted to spend more time with his children.

Coronation Street continues on ITV1 tomorrow at 7.30pm
