Coronation Street star Alison King has warned of trouble in store for Carla Connor and Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne).
Carla has been filled with guilt since she slept with Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson), and the pair are keen to keep things quiet – especially after Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) found out.
However, on the cobbles, secrets have a habit of getting out.
Alison explained that, while Carla and Peter have both made ‘terrible mistakes’ and forgiven each other before, ‘this is another level of betrayal.’
‘Peter was at his lowest ebb, back drinking and becoming seriously ill as a result and Carla slept with his nephew,’ she said. ‘It would take something huge to reunite them if he were to find out, also I can’t imagine the Barlows would be very forgiving towards her or Adam.’
‘[Carla] feels terrible, guilty, angry, stupid, it was a ridiculous mistake in the heat of the moment,’ Alison pointed out. ‘She was angry with Peter, he had refused to come to the hotel with her.
‘They had said some terrible things to each other and she did what Carla always does, she pressed the self destruct button. No one could ever do as much damage to Carla as she does to herself. She regretted it the moment it was over, they both did.’
She went on to say: ‘She was grateful to be given a second chance. She wants to be there to help him through this.
‘She feels partly responsible for how ill he is and the fact that he carried on drinking. She believes him when he says that they can start again and she can’t believe her luck really.’
However, Alison’s not confident the secret will stay quiet forever, adding: ‘She and Adam both have a lot to lose so she has no reason to think that the truth will come out.
‘They vow to keep the secret and they are the only ones who know about it. But Carla’s secrets have a habit of coming out when she least expects them to.’
Meanwhile, she certainly didn’t count on Daniel finding out.
‘Daniel finding out could really ruin everything for her and Peter,’ she pointed out.
‘It is complicated though because Daniel feels loyalty to both Adam and Peter. If he tells Peter then his relationship with Adam is destroyed and if keeps it quiet he is being disloyal to Peter.
‘That is tricky for Daniel but better for Carla because she can probably persuade him to keep quiet. This situation has the potential to blow the whole family apart.’
Recent episodes saw things start to come tumbling down for Carla after Daniel found out about the fateful night between her and Adam.
As Daniel is left reeling by Peter’s proposal to Carla, he confronts Carla, warning her that she has to be honest with Peter.
Both are worried about what this will do to him considering his current state but when Peter sees them in a hushed chat, he accuses them of having an affair.
As for whether Carla and Peter’s relationship can survive, only time will tell.
