Coronation Street's long-time lovebirds Leanne and Peter will be forced to re-evaluate their feelings for each other in the lead up to their wedding

'Coronation Street' lovebirds Leanne and Peter will face trying times in the lead up to their wedding.

Loose-lipped Leanne - played by Jane Danson - will be forced to re-evaluate her feelings for Peter (Chris Gascoyne) after sharing a night of passion with ex-husband and business partner Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) following the opening of their new bar.

Jane explained: "The opening of the bar couldn't have gone better, and Nick and Leanne celebrate with a few glasses of champagne. Of course, one thing leads to another, and they end up in a clinch - it's the start of a bumpy ride for the pair of them.

"She's torn. With Nick, it's a fast life with an exciting career, and she loves the bar and the buzz. But with Peter and his son, Simon (Alex Bain), she has the home life that she really craves. After Nick and Leanne have done the deed, she convinces herself that they can forget what's happened.

"But that's never going to happen, because there's too much history between them - and too much passion in the way as well."

Meanwhile, Peter is facing his own problems after brunette vixen Carla attempts to make a move on him, despite being one of Leanne's closest friends.

Alison King - who plays Carla in the ITV1 show - told Inside Soap magazine: "She's really fallen for him. She can't really help herself. She knows it's wrong, but this is Carla we're talking about!

"Yes, Leanne is her friend, but Carla goes after what she wants - and always gets it."
