Coronation Street’s Chris Gascogne wants Peter and Leanne Barlow to get back together!
Peter left Leanne (Jane Danson) earlier this year after his affair with her former best friend Carla Connor (Alison King) was exposed, and has since been at logger heads with her over the custody of his son, Simon.
With the situation about to come to a head in the ITV soap, rumour has it that Peter will reunite briefly with his ex, before giving her full custody and leaving Weatherfield with Carla, following which ITV have confirmed a four-month break from the show for Gascoyne.
However, in a TV Times magazine interview, Gascoyne, who has played the Weatherfield bad boy since the shows 40th live anniversary episode in 2000, Gascoyne has tipped his alter ego and Leanne to reunite again in the future.
Speaking to the magazine, Gascoyne said: “I think [Peter and Leanne should get back together]. Peter can’t carry on chasing women and robbing banks forever.”
Before joking: “It’s hard work and I’m getting too old for it! Leanne gave him stability in his life and maybe that’s what he needs.”
On the future of Simon and whether he will turn into a teenage rebel in years to come, the star added: “On this show, yeah definitely!
“He could follow in his dad’s footsteps, and they’ll have to do all the same storylines again a few years down the line, or maybe he could buck the trend and end up going to university.”
