Coronation Street: Peter Barlow’s comeback storyline – REVEALED!

Actor Chris Gascoyne is making a permanent return to the ITV soap


Everyone’s favourite alcoholic bookmaker is back in town – yes, Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) has returned to Coronation Street. But what secret is he keeping from the rest of his family?


Scenes to be shown on Monday 17 October will see Peter turn up in Weatherfield sporting a nasty gash on his forehead and refusing to give a straight answer to dad Ken (William Roache). 

After Peter later admits that he has nowhere to stay, Ken tells his son that he’s welcome to stay at No 1. After all, Ken’s off on a trip around Europe. But does Peter have a big reason to be grateful for a roof over his head? 

Teasing the upcoming storyline, producer Kate Oates said recently: “Peter is rarely single and he may have someone in his sights when he returns and he may not be completely honest. Then something happens when he arrives that’s unexpected and which means that he has to stay.”

After being asked how long actor Chris Gascoyne would be back on the soap, Oates replied: “as long as I can tie him down” before adding, “He’s got such an amazing presence and energy on screen.”
