ITV Coronation Street has come under fire after Leanne Battersby and Toyah discussed Sam’s dead mum Natasha on Wednesday night.
The double bill episode at 7.30pm and 8.30pm last night came after Natasha’s heartbreaking death on Monday evening.
Leanne and Toyah were discussing Nick’s son, when it was hinted by Toyah that Leanne would replace Natasha as his mum.
Chloe Lou wrote: “I’m sorry but Toyah and Leanne already talking about Leanne being Sam’s mum doesn’t sit right with me? Natasha has literally JUST died but they’re already talking about basically replacing her? #Corrie”
Lisa Marie LML wrote: “Yeah I hate Leanne, she is not his mum & never will be, you got his mum killed Leanne, get lost…& why tf is Nick not fuming at her, this is ridiculous. #Corrie”

Chloe Lou wrote back: “Literally!! She’s literally just died they shouldn’t even be thinking about it. “Have you asked Sam what he wants” No?? He’s just lost his mum, he doesn’t want a ‘new mum’ ??”
