She went to the police last week and was forced to become an undercover agent.

But soon Harvey will discover the truth – and want deadly revenge on Leanne.

Actor Will told The sun: “Leanne is packing up to run away, but before she can leave the apartment, Harvey kicks in the door.

“It was good to get on board like this. Jane [Danson, who plays Leanne] jumped out of her skin!

“Harvey calls them ‘grass’ and goes to bundle them up in the car, to take them somewhere, to finish them off. He says, “After you’re dead, I’ll make sure Simon looks after me – he’ll be in my little family,” which means he’ll sell drugs for Harvey. “
