Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) reverts to type in next week's episodes when he hits the bottle following revelations from both wife Carla (Alison King) and mistress Tina (Michelle Keegan).
In scenes to be shown on Wednesday 2 April, Peter will turn to drink once again after Carla drops her pregnancy bombshell and Tina also admits that she could also be expecting his child.
Troubled by the news, Peter visits a pub to drown his sorrows. And after a worse-for-wear Peter later calls a cab, a horrified Steve (Simon Gregson) arrives to find him drunk. Steve concocts a cover story to tell Carla and Michelle (Kym Marsh) and books them both in a room overnight to let Peter sober up.
But with Peter's guilt eating away at him, it isn't long before the compulsive cheater is confessing his dirty secret to Steve. The next morning, a hungover Peter instantly regrets telling Steve about his affair, but how will he react later that day when Tina storms round to the flat determined to do a pregnancy test. Is Peter's world about to fall apart?
