Fans of Coronation Street will know that Peter Barlow and Carla Connor are making a return to Weatherfield in tonight’s episode…

And their unannounced – and unwelcome, as far as Nick Tilsley is concerned – arrival will set into motion a chain of events that could lead to Christmas heartache for all involved in the long running love square!

Peter (Chris Gascoyne) and Carla (Alison King) of course left the cobbles earlier this year after a harrowing tug-of-love over Peter’s son Simon ended with his now ex-wife Leanne (Jane Danson) getting custody of the boy.

But while Peter and Carla have been away, Leanne accepted Nick’s (Ben Price) proposal, and tonight, we’ll see the couple preparing to jet off to America to wed in Las Vegas, but the unexpected return of Peter and Carla will put paid to that when Leanne cancels the whole thing…

However, Nick – who’s clearly desperate to wed Leanne – will hastily rearrange the wedding, and as we’ll hear in this week’s episodes, he schedules it for Christmas Day. And of course, above is a picture of the (possibly) happy couple in their wintry wedding finery.

But now that Peter’s back, we’re set to see Leanne torn between her love for Peter – which took a knock but didn’t die when he left her to be with Carla – and her fondness for, and gratitude to, Nick, who’s stood by her through so many hard times…

And of course, Nick’s been a great influence in Simon’s life, as he loves the little boy and, unlike his dad Peter, isn’t prone to falling off the wagon and setting fire to his flat or running off with other women!

So who will Leanne choose? Will she ditch Nick at the altar to reunite with Peter? Or will she say ‘enough is enough’ where Peter’s concerned, and marry Nick again? They of course first wed when they were teenagers.

What do you think she should do?

Well, we will of course have to wait and see what the outcome is, but it’s set to be a belter of a Christmas Day cliffhanger!

Here’s a look at ITV’s Christmas trailer…

    She shouldn’t marry Nick as it wouldn’t be for the right reason but nor should she go back to Peter, ever.
