Coronation Street’s Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) has become desperate to help Carla Connor (Alison King), but as she slips further into psychosis, she slips further away from him.
In a special episode focused on Carla’s mental health, she suffers a severe psychotic episode, which sees her begin to hallucinate and come to believe those close to her who have died have come back to life.
She finds herself in a dangerous situation when she follows a hallucination she believes to be Hayley up a fire escape, and Peter is almost powerless to help.
He feels like she’s completely lost to him, but can he still rescue her?
Alison King has revealed some light at the end of the tunnel of Carla’s struggles as she’s confirmed Carla and Peter will survive this terrible ordeal.
Asked how important their relationship is, Alison said: ‘It is really important, he has shown her that he will do anything for her still and she can trust him, he has literally saved her through his perseverance and believing that Carla is still in there and the belief she can come back.’
She added that they will be more solid than ever: ‘That is worth fighting for so I think they will become more solid than they have ever been.’
So there’s hope for Carla’s recovery yet, and with any luck this will be the step forward for her and Peter to get their lives back on track following such devastation, especially when the true culprit behind the roof collapse is finally revealed.
