Fans of Coronation Street will of course know that Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) and Carla Connor (Alison King) are set to wed, but for Peter – and Carla for that matter – the course of true love tends not to run too smoothly, but will this marriage be any different?
Well, it may be, assuming the couple even get as far as saying ‘I do’ on their big day – which airs on Wednesday 3rd December!
The week of wedding drama kicks off when we see that while Carla’s busy taking care of things at the factory as well as making last minute plans for the wedding, Peter’s on the sidelines yet again.
Concerned by just how little control he seems to have over their relationship, Peter’s slowly but surely been losing sight of just how happy Carla makes him…
So much so in fact that when a sexy Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan) came into his orbit, he couldn’t help but have his head turned by the attentions of the much younger woman!
In the run-up to the wedding, we’re set to see forbidden glances, coded conversations and very dangerous liaisons between Peter and Tina, and all the while, the oblivious bride-to-be is busy putting together plans for what she hopes will be their perfect day.
However, when Peter finds out that Carla has invited her brother Rob (Marc Baylis) to the wedding, he declares that he might not even bother turning up!
But how much of his angry display is down to the fact that he’s consumed by lust for Tina?
Well, that’s something only he can know, but on the morning of the wedding, as everyone gets ready for the big day ahead, things go from bad to worse…
First, Peter’s best man pulls out, and then, Carla’s plans for the ceremony fall apart at the seams.
In dramatic scenes that were filmed on location in Cheshire, both wedding guests and viewers alike will be dazzled by the bride’s beauty and overwhelmed by the striking venue, but will the day run smoothly as Carla is hoping? Or will Peter’s deceit be bubbling too strongly under the surface to allow him to say ‘I do’ to Carla?
And will Tina speak up before it’s too late? Or keep her peace and regret it?
Find out soon!
For now, here’s a look at what’s coming up this week…
