The Barlows have an excellent track record when it comes to being freed from prison. Deirdre – aka the Weatherfield One – was out in no time. An “expert witness” from Tracy’s trial was discredited, hence her subsequent release. So things bode well for Peter, who now has dad Ken in his corner. And all we know how Ken loves a crusade.

The fly in the ointment, though, is Jim McDonald (“so he is”), who’s illegally selling alcohol to his fellow lags by acting as a prison “landlord”. Booze-hound Peter obviously can’t resist the demon drink and is looking forward to reacquainting himself with his former Coronation Street neighbour.

About this programme

Rob invites Simon along to the zoo with Tracy and Amy to stop Ken from taking him to visit Peter in prison, while Lloyd is worried when Neil turns up at the cab office and tells him Andrea has disappeared without a trace. Chesney and Sinead attempt to make a range of bath bombs, which Beth and Kirk put to the test, and Tony and Todd buy cheap building materials for Tyrone's loft conversion.
