When asked by Metro.co.uk if the star thought it would lead to her exit, she said she did.
Jane commented: “That was my initial concern – it felt like the end for Leanne, a leaving story. I know how soap works so spoke to Iain [MacLeod, boss] and understood my character might become a casualty but I asked if he could tell me now if this was it.
“But he said it’s quite the contrary – the beginning of a new chapter for her. It’s quite possibly the worst thing that can happen to anybody but having spoken to Liz from The Lily Foundation charity, life does go on in a way after this horrific journey, and Leanne will go through a bad time but she has another responsibility in Simon.”
She continued saying that the producer was always “open to suggestions”.
