Chris Gascoyne, who plays Peter Barlow in ITV soap Coronation Street, has been snapped out and about in London.

The 53 year old enjoyed a hot drink in the sun as he chatted on his phone and vaped while looking super stylish.

For the occasion, Chris sported a khaki-coloured pair of trousers, which he rolled at the bottom, and matched it back with a plain black long-sleeved top.

He finished off his ensemble with a brown trilby-style hat and brown lace-up boots.

The actor has played a staple part in Coronation Street on and off for decades.

He first played the tumultuous character of Peter Barlow in 2000. But before him, the womanising character Peter was played by actors John Heannau, Christopher Dormer, Mark Duncan, Bill Roache's own son Linus and Joseph McKenner all between 1965 to 1977.

It was nine years later David Lonsdale picked up the role, before Chris played Peter.

In more recent times the soap has seen the storyline follow Peter undergo a life-saving kidney transplant after battling alcoholism, while he was supported by his loving screen wife, Carla Connor.


And, just last year, Chris’s real wife of more than 18 years, Caroline Harding, joined the soap from September to November as Dr Howarth who treated a dying Oliver Battersby, who had Mitochondrial Disease.

The actress spent scenes with Peter’s ex Leanne Battersby, played by Jane Danson, who was part of the heartbreaking storyline surrounding her son Oliver’s health condition.

The emotional scenes centred around young Oliver and his mitochondrial disease, which is a genetic condition which is present from birth.

But this isn’t the first time Caroline has appeared in the hit programme, as she was Hope Stape’s doctor some time ago.

In real life, Chris and Caroline share two children together.

The couple met in 2000 when they went to see their mutual friend Catherine Tate perform at London's Comedy Store, where they went for a walk together through Soho, reports the Mirror.

Elsewhere on the cobbles, Curtis Delamere is set to reveal his secret to love interest Emma Brooker and her father Steve McDonald during next week's episodes, after they worry he is cheating on her.

The ITV soap has previously teased that Curtis (Sam Retford) has been hiding something from Emma (Alexandra Mardell) and things take a dramatic turn next week when he starts to behave suspiciously.
