Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Leanne Battersby remains in danger in Coronation Street, even after drugs boss Harvey's arrest.

Wednesday's (April 7) double bill saw Will Mellor's kingpin brought down (for now) after he moved his drugs delivery operation into the Battersby household. 

Suspicions started to mount when Nick and Toyah spotted Harvey entering the flat — with Nick assuming he was Leanne's new boyfriend and Toyah furious she was skipping work.

Inside the flat, Harvey put Leanne in an awful position when he insisted on taking Simon with him on a delivery instead of her. 

"You just keep them [eyes] open and them [lips] shut," he warned.

Everything went wrong when Leanne's desperate calls to her police handler to abort the raid were ignored. She later got a worrying call from Simon at the police station to reveal Simon had escaped arrest.

As Leanne desperately rushed to get a go-bag together to make her own escape, Harvey burst through her door for revenge.

With Leanne literally backed into a corner by the drug pusher, she had little choice but to admit she was the one who'd grassed up his organisation to the police.

Harvey then turned violent, trying to take his revenge by grabbing Leanne and dragging her into his car, but police arrived just in time to arrest the dangerous dealer.

The drug operation folded under police questioning, as Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) learned from investigators that the chippy was actually being used as a cover for Harvey's operation.

Meanwhile, Leanne was deeply shaken over the danger she still faced from Harvey's allies. She announced to Toyah that they would be leaving Weatherfield to protect Simon's safety.

But will they actually leave the cobbles?

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm on ITV, with occasional Friday episodes airing for one-hour blocks at 7.30pm.
