'Coronation Street's Leanne Barlow is set to have a miscarriage.
The businesswoman (Jane Danson) is delighted when she discovers she is pregnant with husband Peter Barlow's baby and the couple begin planning their future together with their new child and Peter's son Simon.
However, following an argument between the two, Leanne falls down the stairs and loses the baby.
Jane is said to have been moved to tears after reading the script for the storyline, which will be filmed next week.
According to the Sunday People, she told friends: "It's incredibly sad."
Jane recently promised more "exciting" storylines for her 'Coronation Street' alter ego.
She said: "I've not received the scripts but I know what's in store in the coming months - in the summer months. It's very exciting and, of course, I can't say anything because it's more than my job's worth!
"I thought now that they're married they'll probably have a baby and do the expected thing. But I think I'm alright to say that it's not that. I would love to tell you what it is. Keep watching."
