Carla Connor and Peter Barlow have been skirting around their feelings for weeks, but could there be a future for these two in Coronation Street?
Earlier this autumn, Carla confessed her feelings for Peter to dad Johnny, and typical embarrassing dad he quickly let the cat out of the bag.
Since then, Carla has tried to deny her true feelings, especially given that Peter has done everything he can to try and make her life at Underworld a misery. But could there be romance on the cards for these two in the new year? Actor Chris Gascoyne for one hopes so.
On New Years Eve, Peter calls Dev and Kirk to the snooker hall he is considering investing in, and frightens them silly with ideas the place is haunted. All thanks to Carla, who helped him pull off the prank. He thanks her, and in return she tells him he should save his money – the place is a money pit and a bad investment. They grow close as they play the game, will it lead to something more?
Speaking to metro.co.uk, Chris confessed that the couple get incredibly close.
Well its the chase. Theres some really good scenes on New Years Eve. They have a game of snooker and she wins, he said.
He didnt know she could play snooker. She says if you lose then you have to sell this place, youre just jumping from one thing to another just to get away from that and youre going to do the same again. She beats him and he realises that shes right about the snooker hall. Theyre there on their own NYE and they get very close. Its a case of will they or wont they.
Well, while were asking will they or wont they, does Chris or does he not want Carla and Peter to crack on again?
Yeah, I think that they will, he admitted.
Its more interesting as one they are back together were back into that domestic kind of arguments, who buys the tea bags and who does the cooking. I think at the moment its pitched very well. Also theres other stories around its not just them two but even the next set of stories, theyre still very close and unfinished business.
From the outside it seems like these two just cant keep away from each other, and even Chris thinks Carla is Peters the one.
I think it looks like that, he said. Theyre had an on off relationship for some 12 years now. I think thats what the audience wanted. I still think he likes Leanne.
Well, while Leanne is out of the picture, could he be rekindling feelings for Carla? Will there be a saucy scene over a snooker table? Hopefully not, that could really ruin the felt.
