Coronation Street 's Peter Barlow will be told he's dying in a tragic Christmas storyline on the ITV soap.
The taxi driver, played by Chris Gascoyne, is a recovering alcoholic and recently relapsed and started drinking booze again – despite being warned that it could end up killing him.
Peter was driven to alcohol after discovering that his partner, Carla Connor (Alison King) had cheated on him, and now it has emerged that Peter will be told he's dying of liver failure.
In upcoming scenes on the ITV soap, Peter is found by his brother Daniel Osbourne (Rob Mallard) in Victoria Gardens, where he is leaning against a wall and vomiting while clutching his stomach.
Peter slumps to the ground as a frantic Daniel rushes over, and spots blood on his clothes before calling for an ambulance.
Peter is taken to hospital and the doctors tell him that they will do their best to try and stop the bleeding, but warn that he may be suffering from liver failure.
Upon being told the devastating news, Peter begs Daniel to not tell the rest of the family as he doesn't want anyone to see him in such a way, but his nephew Adam ends up telling Ken Barlow about what has been happening.
A shocked Ken (Bill Roache) rushes to hospital and is left utterly devastated when Peter tells him that he's dying.
But Peter leaves Daniel stunned later when he discharges himself and heads over to see Carla.
Initially, Carla is furious at him for disappearing, but is heartbroken when Peter tells her that he was hospitalised with liver failure.
Carla goes on to tell Peter that she loves him and will care for him, no matter what happens.
But Peter is less sure and says that it could be too late for him.
Coronation Street returns to ITV on Monday at 7:30pm
