Viewers know drugs lord Harvey terrorised Leanne Battersby for months last year after her son Simon got groomed into his gang.

His reign of terror came to an end in the Super Soap Week stunt as Leanne crashed a car knocking him out before the police arrested him.

But before that he had shot Natasha Blakeman in a case of mistaken identity.

The mum tragically died of her wounds, leaving son Sam behind.

It hasn’t been revealed yet how Harvey will return but the Metro reports that hints will be seen on screen in the coming weeks.
