Jane Danson Taking “Extended Break” from Corrie

After several months of question-dodging, Corrie bosses have finally confirmed that Jane Danson will be taking an “extended breakâ€? from her role as Coronation Street’s Leanne Barlow.

As if being brought up by Janice and Les Battersby wasn’t bad enough, Leanne has been subjected to the alcohol-fuelled antics of hubby Peter and it seems it has all got too much for the beleaguered actress.

In all honesty, Danson has not confirmed herself that she will be taking the break, but it is thought that the culmination of her current affair storyline will provide writers with the perfect way to writer her out of the show for the foreseeable future.

There are no reports to say how long the actress will be taking off the show, but it is thought she will be leaving the programme in the spring.
