How do you solve a problem like Leanne?

A few weeks ago you may have seen a post all about ideal Christmas presents for Corrie fans. From a Helen Worth advent calendar to a Barbara Knox mask, you really can get it all. Even a cardboard cut-out of your favourite cast member, notably Jane Danson (Leanne Battersby), Kate Ford (Tracy Barlow),  Helen Flanagan (Rosie Webster), Helen Worth (Gail Rodwell) and the dearly missed Sarah Harding (Joni Preston).

Browsing through the countless pages of Celebrity Cut-outs with my mum, we had countless laughs at the variety of cut-outs on offer, and if you can spare half an hour, it's certainly worth a look. Anyway, skipping forward about a week or two to Christmas day, I'm now the proud owner of this...

Ta-dah!
Though hilarious for the first few days, Leanne has now been stood in various places in my living room for nearly a week, and it's becoming worrying...what on earth is next? By the sounds of things, she'd be better off in my living room than in Weatherfield with Simon still around, but on the other hand, she's becoming a piece of dusty furniture. Oh dear.

Do you readers have any suggestions? Perhaps she could be like an all year Christmas tree, with seasonal decorations.

I would have her photobomb every photo for the next year! I would love to own a Tracy Barlow full size cut out. Yes...lowly Kate Ford fan that I am...that is my humble dream. :-)

What a fab idea! She's already appeared in best part of our Christmas photos. I'm not entirely sure why my mum actually got me Jane Danson, I don't dislike her but she isn't my favourite character. It's probably just because having Leanne is a lot more spontaneous and random than one of the more popular or older characters (ie. Rita, Ken, Liz).

I think you should take her out shopping and on the bus with you, even for a booze up in town.

MichaelAdamsUk said...

Haha fab ideas, Flaming Nora. Or rent her out to Corrie if Jane Danson ever decides to leave.

MichaelAdamsUk said...

Oh and that isn't a comment about Jane's acting (she's fantastic) and couldn't be replaced by a mute piece of cardboard

Nice recovery, Michael!

MichaelAdamsUk said...

Haha yes, Cobblestone! I mulled on what I'd posted for a bit and then decided to save myself...

This seems like a pitchfork and burning torch sort of situation. Time to run her out of town... or potentially set her alight. Whichever you choose.

Having a cardboard cut-out of a Coronation Street character in your house is ridiculous and a bit sad...




You need at least 3 or she will get lonely!

MichaelAdamsUk said...

I havw a feeling if I was to throw her off the side of a cliff, she'd follow me home... If I was to burn her at the stake her ghost would haunt me...

And no, Gilles, I will not be getting another! She takes up too much room already haha
