Coronation Street spoilers: Leanne Battersby rocked as cause of Oliver’s seizure ‘exposed’

Leanne (played by Jane Danson) has been taking a back seat in Coronation Street of late, enjoying her perfect family set up with son Oliver (Emmanuel and Jeremiah Cheetham) and partner, Nick Tilsley (Ben Price). However, her world is going to be turned upside down in upcoming scenes on the ITV soap as the youngster is admitted to hospital after suffering from a seizure. It’s not yet been confirmed what is wrong with the tot, but could his ill health have come as a result of an unfortunate accident?


Oliver is the apple of his mother’s eye, given she had many years of trouble trying to conceive, before falling pregnant with him after a one night stand with Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson).

Therefore, when she discovers her son has fallen ill, she will be desperate to get some answers about the circumstances leading up to the neurological overload.

Unfortunately, the youngster’s father won’t be able to help her as he wasn’t actually around when the toddler began fitting.

There was one character who witnessed the whole ordeal, however, and a couple of viewers are predicting they may know more than they’re letting on.

Friday’s instalment of the Weatherfield-based soap saw Steve leave Oliver in the hands of teenager Summer Spellman (Matilda Freeman) after seeing his eldest daughter Emma Brooker (Alexandra Mardell) having a tiff with her ex-boyfriend in the middle of the street.

As the hairdresser caused a scene, her father offered the schoolgirl £5 if she would take his son back to Number One and watch over him for a few minutes.

The taxi-driver had no cause for concern leaving Oliver with the youngster, given she wouldn’t say boo to a ghost.

However, by the time he arrived home, the stalwart saw his and Leanne’s son flat out on the floor as the high-schooler watched on petrified.

Did Summer do something to Oliver?

“He was shaking, it was like a fit. I don’t know, it literally just happened,” Summer told Steve before he picked the toddler up and ran him over to the medical centre.

The credits rolled shortly afterwards, meaning viewers will have to wait and see the aftermath in tomorrow night’s episode.

Taking to Twitter after the scenes aired, however, a couple of fans weren’t convinced the teenager was so oblivious to what had happened.

One wrote on the social media platform: “Did Summer do something to Oliver?” as another asked: “What has she done?”

Monday night’s instalment will see the toddler taken to hospital to undergo further tests, with his concerned mother arriving on the scene.

Leanne’s first port of call will be to ask Steve what happened, before realising he wasn’t there at the time of Oliver’s seizure.

With Summer the only person accountable and having witnessed the ordeal, will the young boy’s mother blame her for what happened?

As the pressure mounts on the schoolgirl, will she be forced to admit an accident did take place, leading Leanne to discover the tragic truth of how her son ended up fitting?

By the end of next week, however, Oliver’s mother will be furious with Steve for seemingly neglecting their son.

As threats of a custody battle looms, the taxi-driver begins searching for legal help and seeks out Imran Habeeb (Charlie De Melo) to support his case.

Unfortunately, the lawyer is able to help as he is in relationship with Leanne’s sister, Torah Battersby (Georgia Taylor), but ends up giving the father a point in the right direction.

It’s not long before the mother of his son learns what he’s been up to, so will a war ensue between the pair as tensions rise?

Coronation Street continues Monday at 7:30pm on ITV.
