Spoilers: Leanne in Corrie plots to whisk dying Oliver to Germany
Leanne Tilsley (Jane Danson) is currently facing a parent’s worst nightmare as she deals with son Oliver’s incurable form of mitochondrial disease in Coronation Street.
She’s been giving Oliver as much care as she can with help from Steve (Simon Gregson), Nick (Ben Price), and other family members since the diagnosis, and soon Leanne will go to new lengths to protect her son as she plans to whisk him away to Germany in an attempt to put him on a new form of treatment.
The doctor breaks the news to Leanne and Steve that they’ve had to up Oliver’s sedation again as his seizures are beyond their control and life support is the only thing keeping him alive.
Leanne tells Nick, Steve and Tracy that she’ll do whatever it takes, and won’t ever give up on her son.
Having done some research online, Nick tells Leanne about a hospital in Germany where they can treat people with Oliver’s condition.
A consultant arrives to give a second opinion, and confirms that Oliver will never be able to breathe unaided and the time has come to talk about switching off his life support.
Leanne accuses the consultant of giving up on Oliver and announces the news about the German hospital that will be able to treat her son.
Leanne and Steve facetime the doctor in Germany and Steve is concerned when Leanne plays down the severity of Oliver’s case.
Will Leanne go ahead with the plan to take Oliver to Germany and mask the truth about how unwell her son is?
