Jane Danson on Leanne's "emotionally tough" storyline

Jane Danson, who plays Leanne Barlow in Coronation Street, has given a good, long interview to The Daily Record about Leanne's current Corrie storyline.

Jane talks about how hard it's been to play part of a family dissolving into bitterness as Leanne and Peter fight over little Simon.

She said: “It has been so sad. All of us who are involved in that story are parents so we can only empathise with that situation and try to imagine what that must be like. That’s the only thing you can do and I think it does help that all of us involved in the storyline have kids. It’s not just about the fight for a child, it’s also about the breakdown of the family unit and what that entails for the child."

She also praises young Alex Bain, who plays Simon Barlow, and talks about the difficulties she faces as a working mum. It's a good read.
