The act causes severe heartache for the parents as the three-year-old has a mitochondrial disease that makes him life sustaining.
Mom Leanne Battersby and Steve McDonald cling to hope that their son will get through, and also face a legal question of whether it would be kinder to abandon Oliver’s treatment and let him die.
ITV boss Kevin Lygo says Leanne will be consumed with grief over the Christmas season as she struggles to cope with the loss of her little boy.
Speaking to the UK press during a preview of ITV’s Christmas schedule, Lygo confirmed that Corrie will bring multiple storylines to the fore in December.
“As always, Christmas is always a dramatic time in Soapland, and Coronation Street and Emmerdale are the focus of our seasonal offerings,” Lygo said, according to The Sun.
“David and Shona Platt look back at Corrie to leave the problems of the past behind and vow to get their marriage going again.
“After Oliver’s death, Leanne’s grief increases as she watches Nick play happy families with his new found son.
“And Todd Grimshaw is determined to get his ex Billy back and make plans to separate Paul and Billy.”
Heartbreaking confirmation comes after Leanne’s actress Jane Danson deals with filming scenes for the “challenging” plot.
“It was really overwhelming, we’ve been discussing this story for a while,” said Jane as she talked about Lorraine.
“And even though I’ve had so many wonderful stories over the years, this felt like the most important, certainly the most challenging.
