Corrie: It may not exactly be a tender or moving scene from Romeo and
Juliet, but Zeedan Nazir’s desperate lunge at his former stepmum, Leanne Battersby, is definitely a must-see moment! Sadly for Zeedan, we reckon new mum Leanne’s life is complicated enough without adding a toyboy romance into the mix. Or is it?
When Zeedan Nazir discovered wife Rana had cheated on him with Kate Connor, one of the first people to find out about the fling was Leanne Battersby. If her boyfriend, Kal, hadn’t died in a fire at Victoria Court, she would be Zeedan’s stepmum by now. But she’s remained close to the Nazirs and she continues to look out for Kal’s kids, Zeedan and Alya. This week, it’s clear a bitter and heartbroken Zee is struggling to pretend all is well with him and Rana, especially with Kate living just a stone’s throw from No.6! Worried, Leanne tries to help, but while it’s nothing but motherly concern on her part, Zeedan crosses the line by making a move on her! And judging by these pictures, it doesn’t look like the feeling is mutual!
3 It looks like it’s a ‘No’ from Leanne, especially as she’s practically one of the family!
