Coronation Street's Peter Barlow is "shocked" at Leanne Battersby's wedding plans.
The soap's bad boy, played by Chris Gascoyne, returns to Weatherfield with his new girlfriend Carla Connor (Alison King) after the pair fled to Los Angeles earlier this year as they lost their custody bid for Peter's son Simon.
But Peter is taken aback by the news that his ex-wife Leanne (Jane Danson) is marrying her ex-husband and childhood sweetheart Nick Tilsley (Ben Price).
Chris told InsideSoap magazine: "Peter's utterly shocked that Leanne is marrying Nick. He still has deep feelings for her, and believes she has feelings for him.
"Peter wants the best for Leanne, but he doubts Nick is the person who'll make her happy."
Peter's arrival on the street comes just before Leanne and Nick are to jet off to Las Vegas for their wedding and although Peter cheated on his wife with Carla things have turned sour between the new couple since living in America, as the former Underworld boss worries about her relationship with Simon.
Chris added: "All isn't as it should be. Carla and Peter were very close in America. Out there, Carla had Peter's whole attention, and she liked that.
"She feels that Simon is never going to come round to liking her, so living in the US is what she wants long term."
