Coronation Street viewers watched Leanne joke with Steve in hospital and pretend everything will be alright after they were told Oliver could die from the disorder the doctors suspected he had.
And episodes of the soap set to air this week will see Leanne remain in denial while she and Steve await Oliver’s official diagnosis.
But next week’s episodes of Coronation Street will see the consultant reveal the heartbreaking news that Oliver has an incurable form of mitochondrial disease.
The upcoming scenes will see Steve and Leanne do their best to take in what the consultant says.
In a state of shock, Leanne demands a second opinion and refuses to accept Oliver’s diagnosis.
Later in the week, Simon overhears Leanne telling Steve that Oliver is all she ever wanted and that when he dies she’ll be bereft.
Simon heads to school for his exam but as he approaches the hall he makes a decision.
What will it be?
Elsewhere, Imran urges Leanne to test the water with Leanne before pulling the plug on their fostering plans.
Toyah later visits Leanne but quickly realises it’s not an appropriate time to bring up fostering with her sister so distressed.
Later in the week, Simon tells Peter what he heard Leanne saying and decides to stay with his dad.
Leanne then tells Nick she feels terrible, leading Nick to square up to Peter and accuse him of taking Simon off Leanne.
An exhausted Leanne then agrees to let Oliver stay with Steve.
Later in the week, Imran hides his disappointment when Toyah tells him they’ll have to put their fostering plans on hold.
Toyah then explains to Karen that, given Oliver’s diagnosis, they can’t go through with fostering any children right now.
