Coronation Street' s Peter Barlow (Chris Gascogne) is left to make a life-changing decision in upcoming scenes.
He returns from Scotland explaining he hasn’t touched a drop of alcohol in an episode set to air next week.
However, at the hospital Peter’s told there’s no improvement in his liver function.
As he leaves a fellow patient awaiting a transplant, makes a dig about alcoholics.
At home Ken Barlow (Bill Roche) and Daniel Osborne (Rob Mallard) tell Peter they’ve got a proposal for him, Daniel is prepared to be his liver donor if he’s a match.
Peter supported Daniel when Sinead died and he wants to do something in return.
Insisting he isn't deserving of a transplant, Peter calls at the solicitors and instructs Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) to draw up an ‘Advance Decision to Refuse Treatment’ declaration.
Ken implores Peter to consider Daniel’s offer and not to throw his life away.
Peter rails at Adam for telling Ken about the legal document, declaring it’s his life and he’ll die on his own terms.
Awash with guilt, fearing he drove Peter to this, Adam reveals to Carla Connor (Alison King) that Peter plans to refuse a transplant.
At the Carla catches Peter taking a swig from a bottle. At her wit’s end she pleads with Peter to reconsider.
Peter steals a bottle of whisky from the bar and knocks it back as Carla begs him to stop.
Taking in the scene, Jenny asserts that living in a pub clearly isn’t helping and tells Peter he needs to find somewhere else to live.
Ken tells Peter he can move back in on condition he stops drinking but Peter turns down his offer and heads out.
Tracy (Kate Ford) assures Ken that Peter will come to his senses but in the ginnel Peter slumps against a wall and knocks back whisky.
Ken frets over Peter, wishing he’d not given him an ultimatum.
Meanwhile, Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) finds Peter unconscious in the ginnel and shouts for Ken to come quickly.
With Peter upstairs in bed, Dr Gaddas explains that he’s suffering from hypothermia and needs warmth and rest.
Peter refuses and to Ken’s horror heads out.
Will Peter take the help that is on offer or will it be too late?
