Fans of Leanne Battersby will be on the edge of their seat tonight as she finally reveals the father of her baby.

It’s been weeks since Leanne had her one night with heartbroken Steve McDonald and was busted throwing up by Steph who had previously found a used pregnancy test.

After confirming her pregnancy with a doctor, Leanne confessed to Simon that she was expecting.

Leanne's had a number of volatile relationships over the years, along with storylines involving prostitution, miscarriage, abortion and a custody battle for her step-son, Simon.

Jane Danson (who plays Leanne) told Radio Times her character wanted to keep the mystery a secret.

She said: "There’s so much going on and her way of dealing with the father is to say they can pretend this never happened and they don’t even have to talk about it.

"But, of course, that’s never going to happen. She’s quite strong and she thinks she can do this on her own, but she’s not really thought it through."

A sneak peek of the episode was aired on ITV’s Lorraine today. Stay away from the spoilers if you want to enjoy the big reveal tonight.

Nick Tilsley, Steve McDonald, Robert Preston and neighbour Zeedan Nazir are all candidates.
