From drugs deal to police deal: will Leanne help the cops bust Harvey? Plus Tyrone confesses to Fiz that he fancies Alina, and Brian gets the blame for Cathy’s crime.
Read on for all your Coronation Street spoilers for the week of the 22-26 March 2021:
Leanne’s brush with the law
It’s only March and yet Leanne has packed more emotional turmoil into three months than the rest of manage in a decade. She started the year in a state of deep grief following the death of Oliver. But is now taking her mind off the bereavement by reluctantly running drugs for the horrendous Harvey so that her other son Simon can avoid prison.

Harvey’s making her don a nurse’s uniform, so she doesn’t arouse suspicion on the drop-offs. But Leanne ultimately decides that she’s had her fill of his orders and heads to the police station instead – only to find herself arrested!
Under questioning, Leanne makes out that Si was never involved in the deliveries. But the investigating officer tells her they’ve been watching Harvey, are aware that he grooms young lads and now need her help to nail him. Maybe Leanne should call that TV clairvoyant again for a view on how this is going to turn out. My prediction? You in danger, girl!
Tyrone confesses to Fiz
Fiz excitedly announces in public that she’s booked a Greek wedding, but Tyrone’s slack-jawed shocked response ends up leaving her humiliated. Back at No 11, Ty admits he’s fallen for Alina Pop, but that she and the girls mean the world to him, so he’ll do anything to put things right.

I can’t help but think, though, that it's only a matter of time before Ty is tempted to Pop out and see Alina again. So, my advice would be for Fiz to call off her wedding plans and head to Greece on her own for some Shirley Valentine-style payback. Tyrone will soon see Fiz in a new light if word reaches him that she’s having some fun in the sun.
Amy turns detective
Cathy’s rash decision to troll Steve’s fundraising page will come back to haunt her when canny Amy and Aadi work out that the bitter-sounding Lemon Drop is someone who works as a newsagent.
Assuming the perpetrator to be Brian, they spray the word “troll” on the Kabin. But when Cathy admits all to her other half, he decides to take the blame and apologises to Amy and Tracy. The trouble is, Brian’s attempt to clear the air backfires when he’s then barred from the Rovers. Who’d have thought Brian would be the Street’s first victim of cancel culture?
Todd takes advantage
When Summer suggests that, deep down, Billy still has feelings for Paul, Todd concocts one of his cunning plans. Persuading Paul to join him for a few drinks, Todd takes Paul to a bar and sets him up with a guy from a dating site.
But don’t go thinking that Todd has become a Cilla-style matchmaker. Within minutes of Paul hooking up, the green-eyed Mr Grimshaw ditches them and joins Billy in the Rovers, making out that he left Paul in town having a high old time.
Expect a smug smile to be playing around Todd’s lips as he takes delight in ruining any hopes Billy may have had for a reconciliation.
