Carla Connor (Alison King) could be set to end things with Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) in Coronation Street after he falls off the wagon following a beating and then lies to her about it.
Peter refuses to pick up a thug in his cab and ends up getting attacked. A passing guy called Barry offers help to Peter – and also gives him a swig from his hip flask, which Peter drains.
Carla is horrified by the state of Peter and assures him that she loves him – but he hides the truth about the fact that he has had a drink.
Carla hopes Peter will join her in a hotel she has booked for a conference but Peter declines. Later, Carla attempts to set Adam and Sarah up by inviting them both to lunch and hints if all goes well she has a spare hotel room for them for the night.
When Barry calls at the Rovers to check how Peter’s doing, Abi is suspicious As Barry leaves, he lets slip to Abi how Peter was in such a state he polished off an entire hip flask of whisky. Unable to resist any longer, Peter grabs Johnny’s bottle of whisky and takes a swig.
And after Abi confronts him and gets a bad reaction, she warns Carla and begs him to seek help but she gives him short shrift.
After he then sinks more booze, he is rushed to hospital and wakes up to find Carla at his side, telling her sorrowfully that he doesn’t deserve her. Will she agree that she can’t cope with this right now and end things? Or will she stand by him?
