Fans of the ITV serial opera Coronation Street will probably remember their Christmas trips because of the shocking exits, significant disclosures, and impending major news.
The joyous occasion is not devoid of melancholy; after 23 years, Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) is scheduled to leave the street named after him. This leads to several poignant moments with Carla Connor (Alison King), one of which we’ve included here.
Carla not only has to bid farewell to her one and only true love, but she also gets a surprising surprise when a long-lost relative unexpectedly appears on her doorstep and reveals his name.
Sadness is also present at the Baileys, where Ed (Trevor Michael Georges) is troubled by the burglary, while Daisy Midgeley (Charlotte Jordan) and Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) are in the Kabin receiving some very important news.
News that brings tears of joy—a rare occurrence in soap operas.
