Peter Barlow is currently in the frame for attacking his dad, Ken – along with the rest of the Barlow family.
But he’s arrested for assaulting someone else – his stalker Chloe.
Blissfully unaware of the police drama that’s awaiting him in upcoming scenes, Peter is preparing to head to the IVF clinic with Toyah.
He’s stunned when DS MacKinnon arrives and arrests him on suspicion of assault.
Twisted Chloe seems hellbent on getting revenge on Peter for rejecting her – if only she realised what a lucky escape she’d had not getting involved with the serial cheat!
She cunningly tells the cops that the cab driver attacked her the night before Ken was pushed down the stairs – knowing full well it will put him even further in the frame for the incident with his dad, too.
The detectives warn Peter that Chloe is prepared to testify in court – and then play an answerphone message on son Simon’s phone, which suggests he planned to do a disappearing act following the murder attempt.
Rattled Peter pleads his innocence and is released on bail – but then he has to explain everything to Toyah.
He tells his suspicious girlfriend that Chloe is trying to frame him for the attack on Barlow Sr.
She believes him and visits Ken, attempting to convince him that Peter would never try to hurt him.
But does Ken believe that?
