Peter (played by Chris Gascoyne) spent the night with Abi (Sally Carman) on his boat which Carla (Alison King) bought for him on Coronation Street, after the devastated mother sought comfort from Peter following her custody case for her young twins.
Wanting to distract herself from giving her children up for adoption, Abi began work on Peter’s boat, but the two soon found comfort in each other’s arms.
Little did Peter’s former flame Carla know the pair had slept together but taking a break from her work duties, she stumbled across the lovers after another passionate moment.
With the boat on the forecourt of the Underworld factory, Peter caught Carla storming back inside the factory as the second episode of the ITV soap got underway.
You’re making me feel sick
Peter soon ushered Abi away and went to confront Carla about what she’d seen as the cobbles love rat had hoped the spark he shared with his former lover would grow into something more.
However, with her dark storyline beginning over her obsession with work, Carla cracked with her jealousy over Peter’s new love interest bubbling over.
The businessman tried to dismiss her anguish, but it was clear she was furious over what she witnessed between Peter and Abi.
After hearing Carla rant on about who she wasn’t interested in, Peter surprised Carla with a kiss which she immediately rejected.
Carla scolded Peter about how his feeling for her would effect Abi, having just lost her children, but the love rat admitted the Weatherfield mechanic was a distraction from Carla.
As Peter went in to kiss Carla again, the businesswoman told him to get out the factory before adding: “You’re making me feel sick.”
