Corrie's Peter puts wedding in danger

No soap wedding is complete without weeks of drama and Coronation Street's Peter is kicking off the drama early.

Warning: Spoiler Alert!

Next week in the soap he comes dangerously close to betraying fiancée Carla Connor on his stag night with his new bud Tina McIntyre and they almost kiss when they step out of The Rovers together.

Chris Gascoyne, who plays Peter, told Digital Spy: "Peter adores Carla. She's the love of his life, there's no denying that. But Peter has his flaws and he can't always resist temptation.

"Also with everything going on with the bookies and the factory over the past few months, he does feel a bit neglected by Carla and as though she's making all the decisions for him."

He added: "He's certainly enjoying being in the factory and he's grown used to sharing a business rather than having his own. But then he's finding himself looking at Tina, so there's certainly something he's not getting from Carla. He even tells Tina that despite everything Carla's done for him, he's still not happy."



He explained why Peter is in danger of returning to his philandering ways: "I think Tina [played by Michelle Keegan] has turned Peter's head at a point where Carla is busy with planning the wedding and looking after the factory. As ever, Peter's not really got much of a say in any of it. It's all about what Carla wants.

"Then Tina comes along and starts to help them out with Simon, which is probably part of the appeal. He also finds her exciting when he sees how feisty she is when she puts up a fight against Tracy.

"Peter admires Tina's spirit and he sees her in a different light. He's lustful after her - I think he almost sees a younger Carla in her somewhere as well. Peter also knows that Tina is attracted to him too, which tempts him even more."
