Abi Franklin (Sally Carman) and Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) are hiding a sordid secret from Kevin Webster (Michael le Vell) and Carla Connor (Alison King) in Coronation Street – but it’s not as bad as you might think.
Abi has made an ill advised and drunken pass at Peter, which he has rejected – and the pair are only keeping quiet to protect their relationships. But this proves to be a bad idea – as they find out anyway thanks to Debbie (Sue Devaney).
Abi returns home to face the music after her moment with Peter but is dumbstruck when Kevin suggests they should draw a line under the past and start again. But when a suspicious Debbie sees Abi meet up with Peter in the ginnel she demands to know what is going on.
Carla’s ears prick up when Jenny lets slip that Peter’s been calming Abi. Peter reveals he’s told Abi he won’t help her any more. Carla hopes she got the message.
Peter asks Abi not to tell anyone she made a play for him as he doesn’t want Carla finding out. Hiding her guilt, Abi promises. Peter’s furious when Debbie corners him and, ordering him to stay well away from Abi, threatens to tell Carla he’s been on the prowl again.
Peter berates Abi for confiding in Debbie and resolves to come clean to Carla before Debbie blabs. Panicked, Abi begs him not to, worried that Kevin will find out too.
For the sake of her relationship with Kevin, Peter promises Abi he will say nothing to Carla. Abi’s relieved while Peter admits he values having her to understand his addiction demons.
After telling Debbie and Kevin she is spending the day with Seb, Abi is reminded of a physio appointment she has and books a cab but is surprised to see Peter is her driver. When Mary mentions that she saw Peter and Abi driving off together Debbie is immediately suspicious.
When Kevin arrives home, excited about booking a holiday cottage, Debbie can’t bear to keep him in the dark any longer and, with a heavy heart, reveals that Abi’s having an affair. Kevin reels and heads for the Rovers where he drops a bombshell on Carla.
Abi and Peter defend themselves – but are their relationships destroyed?
