Corrie’s Carla and Peter set for relationship tragedy as dark secret uncovered

Coronation Street power couple Carla Connor and Peter Barlow are in danger in upcoming scenes, as a dark secret comes to light.

Soap boss Iain McLeod dropped some Coronation Street spoilers as he revealed Carla (Alison King) will discover something shocking about herself in upcoming scenes.

Speaking to Metro, he said: "We will also discover something about her lost weekend where she went missing during her mental health story that we haven't known yet, which will provide a bump in the road for her and Peter.

"And ultimately they will navigate that because he loves her and she loves him and this thing occurred at a time where she wasn't in possession of her mental health.

"So he forgives her, but it plants this tiny little seed of friction between them."

Luckily for viewers, Iain insisted the lovebirds will overcome the relationship hurdle, with no threat of a break-up.

He said: "Ultimately there is no prospect of them splitting up in the foreseeable. I tend to feel that they are Burton and Taylor. Will they be together in 10 years' time? Who knows?

"They're in one of their passionate ‘I will defend them to the death' phases of their relationship, and I like them like that."
