Corrie fans in meltdown as Leanne becomes police mole in Line of Duty crossover

Coronation Street fans were sent into a frenzy on Twitter as they saw Leanne Battersby become a police mole in the ultimate Line of Duty crossover.

Twisted Harvey had continued to order Leanne to sell drugs and he even made her pose as a nurse to ferry his substances around.

She reached breaking point and headed to the police, only for the officers to arrest her and decide to use her as a mole.

They told her she needed to go undercover and find more information out about Harvey and many fans compared the exciting scenes to Line of Duty.

Numerous fans remarked that Leanne was becoming a CHIS which is an acronym used in the BBC drama.

CHIS means for 'Covert Human Intelligence Source', in other words, a CHIS is a police informant.

One fan tweeted: "So, is Leanne a 'chis' now? Is this the ultimate crossover? #CHIS #Corrie #LineOfDuty".

Many noticed it sounded like an innuendo, as one said: "Is it just me, or does 'CHIS' sound rude?"

Another penned: "Lads don’t wanna be rude here but CHIS sounds like something else and I can’t take it seriously".

"So we all learned the meaning of jizz…I mean CHIS this evening", joked a third with two laughing emojis.

Many fans began googling CHIS and discovered its true meaning.
