Coronation Street: Will Peter die from liver failure? Will he get a transplant?

Peter has struggled with alcohol addiction for years

Coronation Street character Peter Barlow has been told it’s a possibility he has liver failure. Could this lead to his death?

In last night’s episode of Corrie (Monday, December 29), Peter told his half-brother Daniel that he would be going away for a while.

Although Peter’s son Simon tried to convince him to stay, Peter said he needed to get away and wouldn’t be gone long.

As Peter headed to the tram station, Daniel tried to get his brother to stay in Weatherfield. But Peter said he needed to go as he was worried that he would go to prison for Adam’s attack.

But as Daniel tried to get answers, Peter started vomiting blood.

Daniel soon called an ambulance and Peter was taken to hospital.

The doctor explained he noticed that Peter had a history of varices – which are blood vessels in the oesophagus. They are caused by the scarring of the liver which can be caused by alcohol.

The doctor said he believed that varices had ruptured and they wanted to check to be sure. However he also revealed it is a possibility that Peter could have liver failure.
