The Subtle Pregnancy

It's no secret around here that Jane Danson (our Leanne) was, at the time of the episodes we're now seeing in Canada, quite pregnant. Because her real life pregnancy was not written into the show, the producers found clever ways to disguise her growing belly. Some of these ways included shooting her from the neck up, having her wear loose clothes, or having her hide behind a pan of chicken Kiev.

Here are some other ways in which the producers have hidden the obvious. See if you can remember these subtle scenes:

The U.S.S. Ronald Reagan

Mount Fuji

A highland cow

A yes, I remember the Highland Cow, and how refreshing it was, after listening to all and sundry at the knicker factory calling each other a 'cow' to finally see the real thing trot through the premises. Gave Hayley a bit of a start.

You crack me up John!

It's bits like this that keep me, and Pete Townsend, coming back for more Corrie Canuck!

I wonder what they will do when she actually has the baby...is she gonna be in Spain for 6 months? Get murdered? Go with Janice to London to live with our toyah?

Did anyone else find it odd (and funny) that Kelly wears such sensible PJ's. Those were almost flannel.

And here I though 'Highland Cow' was just a nickname for Blanche!

Is anyone else getting a weird Apache warning when they try to post?

I love this absurdist humour. Hilarious.
