Christmas present

Things haven’t been great between Peter Barlow and his wife Carla since the shocking events surrounding Corrie killer Stephen Reid back in October.

Peter killed Stephen when he ran him over with his car, thinking he was going to attack Jenny.

Though the police didn’t charge Peter, he’s been struggling with the weight of his guilt ever since. He’s even been tempted to turn back to the booze.

And things have been tense between Peter and Carla because she’s been so focused on saving the factory after Stephen almost destroyed it.

So as Christmas Day dawns, it’s clear the pair have both been thinking about their future.
