Corrie stars Chris Gascoyne and Alison King taking a four month break from the show
Coming up on Corrie next week, the battle for custody of little Simon Barlow (Alex Bain) that has Leanne and Peter at each other’s throats is set to get much worse…
And it’s all set to culminate in Carla Connor and Peter Barlow leaving Weatherfield for a few months, but what we don’t know yet is whether they’ll be taking Simon with them, or if Leanne (Jane Danson) will get custody of the little boy.
The news that Carla and Peter are to go AWOL came via the show’s official website where it was reported that Alison King and Chris Gascoyne – who of course play the roles of Carla and Peter – are taking a break from the soap.
The website states…
They will flee the cobbles in July but Carla and Peter fans needn’t worry as Alison and Chris will be back towards the end of the year with an explosive storyline that will have viewers on the edge of their seats.
Quite how he’ll be introduced hasn’t yet been revealed, but it’s understood he’s set to cause quite a stir among the Street’s ladies!
