Leanne will be caught counting her ill-gotten gains

But the new trailer has revealed the moment Leanne is caught by police counting her ill-gotten gains in a car.

The police officer flashes his warrant card and it looks to be game over for Leanne.

In last night’s episode Leanne was caught in a trap by Harvey after trying to take him on.

Walking up to his car, she said: “You Harvey? I’m Simon’s mum. I believe that’s what he owes you for the stolen drugs – there’s a thousand quid there, you can count it.”

As Harvey tried to tell her that Simon owed him double that – and that he needed to work the rest off, Leanne got a bit of her old fire back.

She stood up to him and faced him down.

“He’s a good kid, he’s never done anything like this before – he’s not cut out for it,” she said.

Harvey told her that’s why he wanted Simon – and Leanne threatened him with the police so he responded with a threat of his own – to put her and Simon in hospital.

She replied: “Oh I know what you did to Jacob. You’re a monster.”

But as she realised Harvey had her backed into a corner, Leanne had to offer to sell the drugs herself.

Later she was forced to deliver a huge brick of drugs to a dodgy flat, but managed to hold it together to get out of there in one piece.

And after Harvey summoned her for another drop.

He said: “Don’t talk just listen. I heard it went alright today so I lined you up another one for tomorrow. 

“You think you can just walk away? I say when you’ve paid off your debt, not you. I’ll call you tomorrow, make sure you answer.”

Viewers are desperate for Leanne to go to the police and be saved.
