Coronation Street's Leanne Battersby receives some malicious advice from newcomer Rowan Cunliffe next week.

Leanne continues to rely on Rowan for advice as she's drawn in by his teachings as part of The Institute.

The ITV soap is exploring the issue of cults in Leanne's new story, which has seen her start to hand over money to Rowan in return for his self-help guidance.

Leanne's partner Nick Tilsley and sister Toyah have both warned her against spending money on Rowan's advice, which has included a so-called "reality coding" technique.

Toyah has also confronted Rowan in person, accusing him of preying on vulnerable people with dangerous advice.

Next week, Leanne catches up with Rowan over video call and confides in him about Toyah's ongoing negativity over The Institute.

Rowan suggests drastic action, claiming that it's time for Leanne to immediately distance herself from her sister.

Later in the week, Rowan returns from his trip and Leanne is delighted to see him.

Rowan tells Leanne that it's time to unburden herself of negativity by embarking on one of his other techniques – "uploading".

Although Leanne protests over how busy she is, Rowan says that it's time to start putting herself first.

When Toyah visits the Bistro, she finds Nick overwhelmed as he's short-staffed while Leanne is busy with Rowan. Toyah offers to help him out.
