‘Have the best day! Here’s to many more years of you!’, Samia wrote alongside.
Jane has portrayed Leanne on and off since 1997. Sister to Toyah (Georgia Taylor), Leanne can often be seen working in the Bistro with Nick (Ben Price) and Ryan (Ryan Connor).
Two years ago, during Super Soap Week, Leanne was involved in a storyline that ultimately led to Natasha Blakeman’s (Rachel Leskovac) death.

After drug dealer Harvey (Will Mellor) escaped from a prison van, he made his way back to the cobbles to try and get revenge on Leanne.
Planning on shooting Leanne, Harvey ended up killing Natasha due to both characters wearing the same Morticia Addams Halloween outfit.
