Coronation Street spoilers: Abi reveals Peter’s secret to Carla

(Picture: ITV)

Since Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) in Coronation Street began helping Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) with her drug temptations, he’s been struggling himself with his own alcohol addictions, and keeping Abi’s suggestion that they should sleep together a secret from Carla (Alison King) only made things worse.

Thankfully, Carla forgave Peter, and since then the two of them have been away from Weatherfield on a sailing holiday.

However, with Peter’s alcohol struggles continuing, he is set to hit the bottle in devastating scenes soon after being attacked by a thug, but when Peter thinks it’s best to keep it a secret from Carla, it’s up to Abi to tell her the truth.

Leaning up against a wall covered in blood after his attack, it’s a passer-by named Barry that offers Peter his hip flask full of whisky. Peter tries to fight his demons but fails, and swigs from the hip flask.

When Peter returns home, Carla’s horrified about the attack and tells him how much she loves him. Abi grows suspicious of Barry and later warns Carla that Peter needs some help.

Carla tries to drag the truth out of Peter, but will he admit he needs some help?
