WEATHERFIELD stalwart Peter Barlow is set for a dramatic exit from the cobbles after more than two decades.
After getting embroiled in Stephen Reid's scheming, the Coronation Street cabbie could have landed himself in deep and deadly trouble.
Stephen (portrayed by Todd Boyce) claimed a third victim in the cobbles earlier this year after drowning Rufus Donahue in his own pool.
And while the death has been somewhat discarded as a simple accident, Rufus' wife Lou is convinced there is more to his demise than meets the eye.
Her suspicions seemed to be confirmed when she claims to find a tie pin that never belonged to Rufus – and Stephen is horrified to realise it was his own.
Coming up next week on ITV, the truth is seconds from being exposed as Lou arrives for a meeting.

She immediately lets Carla Connor (Alison King) and Stephen know that the police have agreed to look into the strange tie pin and into Rufus' missing watch which was actually pawned off by Peter Barlow.
Stephen is worried and steals Lou's hotel key from her bag.
However, he then overhears Peter (departing soap legend Chris Gascoyne) on the call to the pawnbroker who took Rufus' watch.
At the time of the pawn, the cabbie was looking to gather fund for Carla Connor's stay in rehab after she seemingly suffered a psychotic relapse.

Peter is overwhelmed, believing he may be in huge trouble and he confesses to Stephen that he pawned the watch which has been sold away.
Later on, Stephen lets himself into Lou’s hotel room whilst she is at the factory and rifles through her belongings.
He finds his tie pin and pops it in his pocket, but as he makes to leave, he’s horrified to hear someone at the bedroom door.
Will he get caught?
While that remains to be seen, Peter soon catches on to Stephen's underhanded ways and tells Carla to keep an eye on him as he can't be trusted.
