Chris Gascoyne has teased his Coronation Street return, saying that his character Peter Barlow has "changed" during his time away.

Speaking to the Radio Times, Gascoyne said: "I do think [Peter's] changed. Being away was a good thing for him and he's in a much better place.

"He may got sucked into his old way of life now he is back in Weatherfield but at the moment he's fighting that temptation."

Speaking about his relationship with Carla, he added: "It's hard to put a finger on it, but you do get a sense that it's not quite as it should be. They're not 100% together with each other at the moment."

The 44-year-old actor further explained that his character is shocked to discover that Leanne is engaged, saying: "I think he wants the best for her and wishes her well, but I think he still does have deep feelings for her and believes she has feelings for him. I think Peter doubts whether Nick is truly the person Leanne should be with.

"But it does really boil down to Peter and his ego - he cannot stand to see Leanne wanting to marry Nick Tilsley, really."
