She first came to the village as fiancée to Lee Hunter, who was returning to the village after a five year absence. Wandering eyes from both parties soon caused trouble in their relationship, Leanne snogging Doug and Lee falling for Amy. Though Leanne subsequently jilted Lee at the altar, she went to extreme lengths sabotage his relationship with Amy and win him back, using Jamil to make him jealous and even faking injury and trying to pin the assault on Amy.
She isn’t all bad though. She helped flatmate Doug come to terms with his sexuality.
