Shock return for Coronation Street's Peter Barlow

By Lauren Brown

Corrie bosses have revealed some explosive storylines coming up in the autumn, including a shock return for one character and a love triangle.

Peter Barlow is to make his return to the famous cobbles, sending "ripples through the street" following his departure from Coronation Street in 2014.

And ITV bosses have said that something "completely unexpected" will happen when he returns - meaning he has to stay.

Chris Gascoyne, who plays Peter, will be joined by nephew Adam and half-brother Daniel, it was revealed. At a Press conference yesterday, producer Kate Oates said she was excited to bring Peter back and urged viewers to "watch this space".

She added: "Peter is always one you want to work with, he has such an amazing presence and great energy on screen.

And Oates has promised "big drama" surrounding David Platt's current storyline in the wake of wife Kylie's death.

And no soap is complete without a love triangle and Aidan, after too much wine, finds himself in bed with Maria, who is currently dating tolerant Luke who took on her young son.

Speaking about the planned six episodes per week, Oates said she was looking at introducing new characters and building new studio space.

She dismissed accusations saying that staff were unhappy, adding that they were "excited".
