It would be the Christmas gift that every #Carter fan would want – could Peter Barlow and Carla Connor be set to reunite before the year is out? Actor Chris Gascoyne, who plays Peter, has revealed that there are significant scenes ahead this festive season for the couple amid conversation around the fact that they will always harbour dark feelings for each other.
Since Carla returned to Weatherfield, the pair have danced around their feelings for one another. At one emotional point for the pair, while Carla was in a crisis, Peter was there for her and they slept together.
Since then, they have both been questioning how they truly feel for one another and have been brought closer now that they work together in Underworld. And with Carla soon set to admit to her dad that she does still love Peter, it could be the beginning of a road to recovery for this pairing.
And the pay off may come this Christmas.
Speaking in an interview with Acumen Magazine, Chris shared: Were starting a really exciting and grown up chapter which begins with quite an extravagant Christmas present from Carla to Peter. Its unusual and initially he cant work it out but then…
And theres a fabulous New Years Eve for the two of them!
Could they be seeing in 2019 with a kiss?
Discussing the strength of their love, Alison King mused: Something will always be there. Even if theyre with someone else or not, theyve got a link thats almost like family and pulls them together. It actually runs a lot deeper than that but they are as linked as two people can be.
Carla and Peter fans certainly wont dispute that – the bond between them has been played with by Coronation Street for years and still engages a huge proportion of the viewers.
Only time will tell what exactly happens at new year…
