Coronation Street fans are left ‘sobbing’ as Natasha Blakeman dies

Coronation Street fans were dealt a devastating blow on Monday night, after Natasha Blakeman died in a shocking twist.

Viewers were left ‘sobbing’ after tear-jerking scenes saw Nick Price and his son Sam learn that Natasha hadn’t survived an operation to repair her internal bleeding, after she was accidentally shot by drug dealer Harvey Gaskell.

Natasha’s death, which was kept a closely-guarded secret by soap bosses, left many fans floored following the tragic death of Johnny Connor in the finale of the annual Super Soap Week, with the Underworld boss drowning in the sewers.

Monday’s double bill saw Natasha (played by Rachel Leskovac) rushed to hospital in the wake of the shooting, with Nick’s partner Leanne wracked with guilt given she was Harvey’s intended target.

Moving scenes saw Nick break the news of his mum’s injury to his son Sam, leaving him fearful of whether his mum would survive. 

At first it seemed that Natasha could pull through, with doctors planning an operation to stop her internal bleeding, and the mother shared a tear-jerking farewell with young Sam before heading into surgery.
