Carla Connor (Alison King) will be left fearing for the future of her relationship with Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) in upcoming Coronation Street episodes – and, to be fair, she has every right to be after Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) makes a pass at her man!
Given Peter’s past as a bit of a womaniser, it isn’t much of a stretch for Carla, who is already vulnerable following her mental health battle, to believe that he might stray again.
However, Peter is innocent and Abi ‘s pass is firmly rejected. She is in a dark place after she thinks she has blown it with Kevin Webster (Michael le Vell) and, after hitting the bottle, she thinks that leaning in to Peter is a good idea.
Big mistake! Luckily when she returns, things are patched up with Kevin but Debbie (Sue Devaney) then clocks her chatting with Peter in the ginnel – where Peter is asking Abi to keep the pass from Carla as she would get the wrong idea.
But soon Debbie is wanting answers as she races over to confront Peter – and warns him to stay away from Abi or she will reveal to Carla that he has been prowling after her.
Peter is angry at Abi for letting the cat out of the bag and now he feels that he has to tell the truth to Carla before Debbie gets to her. Abi implores him not to and, for the sake of her relationship with Kevin, he reluctantly agrees as he values her as a friend and a confidante.
But it doesn’t stay secret for long!
After telling Debbie and Kevin she is spending the day with Seb, Abi is reminded of a physio appointment she has and books a cab but is surprised to see Peter is her driver. When Mary mentions that she saw Peter and Abi driving off together Debbie is immediately suspicious.
When Kevin arrives home, excited about booking a holiday cottage, Debbie can’t bear to keep him in the dark any longer and, with a heavy heart, reveals that Abi’s having an affair. Kevin reels and heads for the Rovers.
Abi and Peter try to convince Carla and Kevin that there is nothing going on but Abi is forced to admit she did make a silly pass at Peter. Carla accuses Peter of tiring of a normal relationship once she was back on an even keel so he went looking for the next damsel in distress.
Is this the end of the line?
