Coronation Street's Peter Barlow will threaten to kill love rival Nick Tilsley after finding out about his saucy affair with his wife Leanne
Coronation Street's Peter Barlow will threaten to kill love rival Nick Tilsley on the day of his wedding blessing.
The scorned former alcoholic - played by Chris Gascoyne - will leave the his mate fighting for his life after finding out he has been having a saucy affair with his wife Leanne (Jane Danson).
Taking an iron bar to his enemy's head after his Valentine's Day (14.02.11) blessing, Peter says: "I think it's time we had a little chat. I'm going to kill you Nick. I've nothing to lose. My wife's cheated on me, my dad thinks I'm back on the booze and I can't bear to tell my son that another man has bedded his new mum.
"Whatever sentence I get, the days will fly by knowing I've killed a pathetic specimen like you."
A terrified Nick (Ben Price) begs Peter - who is dad to adorable Simon (Alex Bain) - to think about the consequences his violent actions could have on his young son.
Peter replies: "I reckon they'll call it a crime of passion."
While naughty Nick desperately attempts to make a run for the door, Peter deals him a huge blow to his head, before leaving him surrounded by a pool of blood.
