CORONATION Street viewers are in tears over Natasha Blakeman’s goodbye to her son Sam as she died.
The hairdresser – who is played by actress Rachel Leskovac in the ITV soap – passed away during surgery after she was shot by drug dealer Harvey.
He had thought she was Leanne Battersby.
Tonight her son Sam discovered the truth of what happened and was taken to see her in hospital after she came to from the first of two operations.
However, Natasha realised she was dying and said goodbye to her son.
“I love you so much,” Natasha told her son as she lay waiting for her second operation.
“I am so proud of you – the boy who you are and the man you are growing up to be.”
As she hugged Sam, she looked up to Nick and it was obvious she knew she was saying goodbye for good.

Turning back to Sam she told him: “Remember what we used to say? It’s us against the world.
“No matter where I am, how far away, I am always with you. I love you Sam, so so much.”
Later as Sam and Nick waited for news, the doctor came out with some bad news.
Sam wouldn’t let the doctor speak to Nick alone and she was forced to deliver the bad news to them both.
She said: “We did everything we could, but I’m really sorry to say we couldn’t stop the internal bleeding.
“I’m afraid your mum has died.”
Viewers were completely heartbroken for Sam over his loss.
One wrote: "How could you break Sam's heart?! I'm in floods of tears here. Mummy written inside the card sent me over the edge. #CoronationStreet"
A second said: "That has yet again had me in floods. Jude is so good as Sam, Corrie has certainly had the nation sobbing over the last few months. I've not got over Seb's death yet."
Another added: "Aww this scene totally got me. Jude is a fantastic young actor playing Sam. #Corrie"
