Coronation Street love rat Peter Barlow has been spotted in a drunken state at Tina McIntyre’s funeral while Steve McDonald tries to keep him upright.

The cast of Coronation Street have been filming the send-off for murdered Tina (Michelle Keegan), whose death and killer are yet to be revealed, and, according to the Daily Mail, Peter, who was having an affair with Tina, turns up to pay his respects a litttle worse for wear.

Chris Gascoyne, who plays Peter, was snapped shooting scenes where he swigs from a bottle of alcohol and tussles with Simon Gregson who plays Steve.

It appears as though Steve tries to hold Peter back from lurching over to the rest of the mourners and ends up giving him a consolatory hug.

Peter, a recovering alcoholic, had recently married factory boss Carla (Alison King) but had started an affair with Tina just before the wedding, leading him to turn back to the booze.

Tina’s death scenes are due to screen in Coronation Street later this month.
