Coronation Street star Jane Danson has admitted that Leanne Barlow's recent infidelity has altered her view of cheating.

The actress confessed that her character's affair with Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) has made her rethink her vow to immediately leave an unfaithful partner.

She told The Mirror: "Before I filmed this I was like, 'If anybody cheated on me, that would be it'. But knowing that [Leanne] was desperate for forgiveness made me think, 'Why did she do it? Why did she want Peter back?'

"In their situation, where a child is involved and she wanted to salvage the relationship, not everything is black and white. I hope I never find myself in that situation but in any marriage you have got to keep communicating and growing together.

"I don't forecast a massively happy marriage for Leanne and Peter. They might be together for a while, but I don't think it will be without its ups and downs."

Asked about the secret of her own successful marriage to fellow actor Rob - with whom she has two sons, she joked: "Allowing Rob command of the remote control and letting him watch football has probably been the key!" Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
