    Coronation Street’s Peter Barlow could be finding comfort in another woman’s arms ahead of his exit, AI has claimed.

    Soap veteran Chris Gascoyne has played fan-favourite Peter on the long-running ITV soap on-and-off since 2000. However, in July it was reported that Chris was leaving the cobbles. A source at the time claimed he felt it was the “right time” for him to pursue other projects.

    And it’s fair to say throughout his 23-year-stint, Chris been involved in a slew of dramatic and big storylines. From his battle with booze to his many affairs, Peter is no stranger to drama.

    Over on the soap at the moment he’s been left reeling in the aftermath of bad guy Stephen Reid's murder. As fans will recall Peter ran over the serial killer in a bid to stop him escaping.

    Although he’s said to be in the clear legally so far, Peter is still feeling guilty over killing Stephen. And make things worse for Peter, his girlfriend Carla is currently in Spain trying to save her business, Underworld.

    And during Friday’s episode (November 3) Peter had fans thinking the worst when he met up with Toyah Battersby. Peter had decided to to go an alcoholics anonymous meeting.

    After bumping into Toyah, she offered to accompany him, and he gratefully accepted. Now, it’s been claimed the pair could strike up a saucy affair in a shock twist.

    Daily Star has quizzed one of the world’s most popular artificially intelligent “creative” tools Bard AI, to see if Peter could have an affair with Toyah. The program responded: “One reason why Peter and Toyah might have an affair is that they are both vulnerable at the moment.”

    It explained: “Peter is struggling to cope with the guilt of killing Stephen, and Toyah is still grieving the loss of her husband, Imran. They could find comfort in each other's arms, and their relationship could develop into something more.”

    The system then claimed the other reason why they might have an affair is that they are both attracted to each other. It said: “They have always had a good rapport, and there has been a spark of attraction between them ever since Toyah returned to Weatherfield. If they start spending more time together, it is easy to imagine that their feelings for each other could grow stronger.”

    However, Bard AI did not that there are “some obstacles that could stand in the way of Peter and Toyah having an affair.” The system claimed: “One is the fact that Toyah's sister, Leanne, is Peter's ex-wife. Leanne would be devastated if she found out that her sister and her ex-husband were having an affair.”

    Echoing their thoughts, someone else added: “Carla is far better than Toyah Peter what are you doing.” A third fumed: “What’s going on with Peter and Toyah then?”
