Will Peter Die on Coronation Street?
While we’re not sure if Peter will live or die, we know that 2021 will be a big year for Peter.
Over the years, Peter has struggled with alcohol addiction and relapsed in late 2020.
Last year, Peter was devastated after learning that his fiancé Carla had cheated on him with his nephew Adam.
Peter started drinking again, which resulted in him ending up in the hospital again.
Corrie boss Iain MacLeod spoke about the relationship between Peter and Carla to Entertainment Daily and other media outlets: “You will always stay in love.
“I think the aftermath of the age of 60 will probably be the greatest task for Peter personally in terms of his mental wellbeing. His physical well-being will hit an all-time low.
“But in terms of his relationship with Carla, the intent in this story has always been for both of them to make a terrible mistake. In Carla’s case it was Adam and in Peter’s case it hit the bottle again.
“So they both make big mistakes. But in fact, they’re coming out of the other side stronger than ever before. So this is supposed to be the final acid test of this relationship. “
