Coronation Street star Chris Gascoyne says Peter Barlow’s upcoming wedding to Carla will be a ‘disaster’.

The 45-year-old actor, who plays former bookie Peter, warns that his character starts to feel less of a man when Carla takes over the wedding planning and puts herself in sole charge of the budget.

“Peter is not very happy,” Chris tells TV Times in its latest issue, on sale now. “He’s lost the bookies and doesn’t know what he’s doing in the factory.

“It’s Peter doing the same old thing. Whenever things are going well he presses the self-destruct button.”

Although Chris says Peter ‘loves’ Carla, he doesn’t appear to have high hopes for their future.

“As for the wedding, if it happens, it can only be a disaster if it’s got a Barlow in it!”
