When Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) decided to drive his car straight at Stephen Reid (Todd Boyce) in Coronation Street, his life abruptly changed.

The multiple murderer was holding a bottle to Jenny’s throat, giving Peter the impression that Stephen was going to kill her. Jenny is played by Sally Ann Matthews. Peter believed he had saved Jenny’s life when he drove straight at Stephen and killed him.

It was difficult for him to kill a man, and his grief increased when he learned that Jenny’s life had not really been in danger because Stephen had made a vow not to kill her.

Peter had struggled ever since. His friends and family were concerned that the trauma of what had happened to Stephen would cause him to relapse into alcoholism, as he has battled the disease for many years.

Instead, with the help of Carla (Alison King) and the rest of the family, Peter has been to numerous AA meetings and has been making an effort to maintain his composure.

However, Peter becomes worried when he notices his son Simon (Alex Bain) manning a bar. His son following in his footsteps is the last thing he desires.

In the past, Simon has experienced a good deal of difficulties. He was drawn into the drug trade by his friendship with Jack James Ryan’s character, Jacob Hay, who worked for Harvey Gaskell (Will Mellor).

This time, Simon is drinking to make himself feel better after a disappointment. Under the orders of bully Mason (Luca Toolan), Dylan (Liam McCheyne) has taken a load of vape pens that Simon was transferring from a returns pallet to Peter’s car.

Peter became enraged upon learning that the vapes had been taken, and he hurried over to Sean’s (Antony Cotton) place to confront Dylan.

Peter later admitted to Carla that he was really having trouble with his conscience after killing Stephen, so his anger wasn’t really directed towards Simon.

Therefore, Peter is quick to reassure Simon when he discovers that he appears to be turning to drink following his outburst, telling him that he can’t let one setback defeat him and that drinking is definitely not the solution.
