Leanne Battersby (Jane Danson) is set to be left heartbroken in Coronation Street when Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) encourages her to accept the result of the court hearing – which is that the life support has to be withdrawn from Oliver.
Leanne is devastated to hear the outcome and breaks down in tears before resolving to fight an appeal.
Knowing that today’s the day that the Judge will announce her decision regarding Oliver, Tracy, Amy, Emma and Simon gather at No.1 and nervously await the news.
Steve and Leanne sit in silence as the Judge delivers her statement regarding Oliver’s situation. She concludes that it is in Oliver’s best interests that his life support be withdrawn.
In the hospital, Toyah receives a call from an anguished Leanne and Sarah fights back her tears. Leanne announces that she wants to launch an Appeal.
Steve reluctantly agrees but it’s clear he’s not convinced. Steve and Leanne return to the hospital and head straight to Oliver’s room.
Steve finally tells Leanne that they have to let Oliver go and he can’t back her in her decision to Appeal, but will Leanne listen to him? And will she turn her back on everyone as she continues to fight for Oliver alone – even if she will never be able to get the only outcome she could want which is to save him from his tragic fate?
