The consultant tried to get Peter help by revealing the depth of his health problems.

But as Peter refused help from the drug and alcohol service, insisting he had his drinking under control, the doctor asked him simply: “And you’d bet your life on that would you? 

“Because that’s what you’d be doing. 

“Because of Mr Barlow’s previous diagnosis even if he hasn’t caused any lasting damage to his liver this time, he is still potentially one drink away from a massive internal bleed. 

“That’s possibly a fatal one.”

The news that Peter could die if he takes one more sip of alcohol had fans reeling.

Especially when Carla confessed to cheating on him – but she failed to mention it was his nephew Adam who she slept with.

One wrote: "Hope Peter stops drinking now."

A second said: "Please QUIT now Peter #corrie @itvcorrie".

Another added: "let’s just hope that when peter eventually finds out about carla and adam it won’t push him over the edge once and for all."
