What does his future look like now? (Picture: ITV)
During Stephen’s final moments in Weatherfield, he came very close to murdering Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews). His life then came to a shock end when Peter drove right into him.
In the aftermath, the Weatherfield residents have continued to debate over whether or not Peter should face consequences for his actions. For Audrey (Sue Nicholls), she’s of course more focused on losing her beloved son but for Jenny and Daisy (Charlotte Jordan), they have called Peter a hero, convinced Jenny would be dead if it wasn’t for his intervention.
This point has been something Peter has clung onto every since the ordeal took place. He argued yesterday (October 16) that the right person survived between Jenny and Stephen and tonight, he faced further questioning from DS Swain (Vicky Myers).
Joined by a solicitor called Kim, who represented Toyah (Georgia Taylor) after the car crash that killed Imran (Charlie De Melo), Peter was incredibly stressed as DS Swain pressed him on his state of mind leading up to Stephen’s death.
Ultimately, Peter’s behaviour didn’t do him any favours. At one point, he told Swain that he never set out to kill but if he was in the same situation, he would absolutely do it again – which certainly doesn’t put him in a hopeful position.

Peter has been released under investigation but eventually, DS Swain and her team will reach a conclusion – so will he go to prison?
Is this how Chris Gascoyne will leave the show?
‘Without giving too much away this will affect his future’, Chris teased.
‘He has been arrested on suspicion of murder, he is struggling with his demons.
‘He has always had lots of enemies but at the end of the day he is his own worst enemy, he is the one that has suffered at his own hands the most emotionally and we can see this starting to happen again.
‘He is facing prison, the drink is on his mind again, Audrey wants him to pay for what he has done. It is a turbulent time ahead.’
It’s not looking good.
