ITV has released a new promo spotlighting the upcoming trial of Peter Barlow, who stands accused of murdering Rovers Return barmaid Tina McIntyre.
The new trailer sees Carla (Alison King) taking to the stand and admitting that she doesn’t think Peter is guilty of the crime, while the real murderer Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis) tells young Simon Barlow (Alex Bain) that his dad is innocent.
The verdict is being kept under wraps by show bosses, but actor Marc Baylis recently revealed to RadioTimes.com that his time on the show is set to end this November:
“It’ll all be climaxing on Guy Fawkes Night and, in all honesty, the whole team has seriously pulled it out of the bag. It’s full on,” he said. “It’s some of the best writing that I’ve had since since I’ve been on the show. And hopefully the audience will love what they see because a lot of hard work has gone into it. And the word on the street is that we’ve done it justice.”
