Now Alison King has spoke about the impact Peter’s behaviour has on his and Carla’s relationship.

As reported in Digital Spy, she said: “The fact that she didn’t know and that it is Abi who says she should talk to Peter, because there is a real reason to be worried, then she goes to talk to him and he is still denying, it is so hard to deal with.

“It is only because she sees something in him when he is talking to her and because she knows him so well that she realises Abi is right and something is going on. It is a double-edged sword because she feels pushed out but she knows she has to deal with it.”

Hinting at more trouble ahead for Carla, Alison said: “He reacts in typical Peter Barlow way and shuts her out again. But she also feels guilty as she knows she has taken her eye off the ball.

“She should have told him how she was feeling, but instead she is going into self-destruct mode again.”
