Question of the Week


Okay, get out your thinking cap, this week’s question is…’What DID Leanne do with all the money she got from Danny?’

My theory she spent it on Herefordshire cattle and teatowel removal in addtion to the thousands she spent on having her clothes taken in.

    I’m surprised no one on the show has asked. Especially Janice; seems like a question right up her alley.

    I think she invested it in a real estate scheme, and lost close to everything. Hence, the real estate mogul cover story when she returned. She knew a little bit about it, but not enough, so lost her shirt.

    Does anyone remember how much $$$ Danny gave her? I’m pretty sure an amount was named, and it wasn’t paltry. Something like $50,000 maybe?

    Ever had one of those weekends where you ask yourself, “How the hell did I spend $1000?” Imagine 52 weekends like that, and that’s Leanne.

    Even if you don’t invest £50K, if you live relatively frugally, it’ll more than hold you for a year in most places. But I think Leanne is like a lot of people in that as soon as there’s a lot of money all at once in her hand, she has to spend it. So she probably blew through a whole wad of it on designer clothes and hotels, rather than invest it.

    Then, when money got tight, she turned to the escort business.

    I have a bit of sympathy for Leanne. I think she wants to break out of her working class life but doesn’t yet want to realise that to do so, it’ll mean a lot of hard work and sacrifice. She’s just not ready to do that yet. She’s still waiting on her meal ticket. It probably burns her that people like Frankie and Carla, who have no income of their own (Frankie did get work, eventually), get grab rich husbands and yet, she’s never had that luck. So to her, there’s no moral difference between marrying rich and escorting – you get that money however you can.

    But who knows? Maybe this pasta joint will be the making of Leanne.

    I think you’re right on the money, John. Good insight into the character. I feel sorry for her, too – she ‘s like a kid with her nose pressed against the glass.
    I do wonder, though, why she would come home to be an escort? You’d think she could make more money in a nicer city than Manchester and wouldn’t have to lead a double life or tell her family what she’s doing.

    missusmac – i love your comment, she lost her shirt!! LOL, i couldn’t resist.

  7. beanie says:

    Here’s how I remember it….Leanne blackmailed Danny for 100grand with the Adam/will thing.He gave her 50 with another 50 to come.She took off before she got the 2nd one.And gave the Barlows a copy of the will anyway.I think she really loved Danny and was really hurt.Also last week she told Janice..”I should have stayed in Spain and invested Danny’s dosh” so John is spot on…she blew it!

    John’s post says it all…
    So We’ll just say…

    Hello Everyone 🙂

    We just discovered this blog and its now daily reading for us… (whether we watched the show or not.) We hope to be regulars in this Corrie community.. Seems like a really nice group.

    Oh, and we live in Caledonia Ontario.

    Great question. Also, even if the escort agency wasn’t taking a healthy cut, is it possible to earn 20K in six weeks on one’s back?

  11. Alasdair says:

    I think she spent the $50K for Janice’s liposuction…. Just a guess!

    If she gets 500 pounds ($1000) a night for 5 nights a week – that’s 2500 pounds a week for 6 weeks = 15,000 pounds, which is still not enough. So, she must be planning to make at least 700 pounds a night – or work 7 nights a week – and that will make Leanne a very busy girl indeed.

    Liam will have to find other ways of keeping busy – seems some of the Corrie Canuck gals could figure out how to do this!

  12. Diane/tvor says:

    When Leanne came back, she put a bid in to buy Jamie’s house. She must have had a down payment to get a mortgage approved even though her bid was gazumped by Liam. She seemed to have cash when she first arrived back. I figure she still has some money left from the 50 grand but not enough for the partnership amount.
