Peter, who is currently dealing with the injuries he sustained in last month's tram crash, remains in the dark about Leanne's (Jane Danson) affair with Nick (Ben Price). However, Gascoyne revealed that Nick will use the bookie's alcohol addiction to try to end the couple's marriage.
"Nick will stop at nothing to get Leanne," he said. "He's encouraging Peter to fall off the wagon. Nick knows Leanne will be furious if she finds out Peter's drinking again and hopes it’ll make her leave him."
He continued: "Peter's at a low ebb and having Nick next to him suggesting that he has a drink, well... he can't resist it. Nick's extremely subtle and makes out he’s being a real mate - and Nick did save his life."
A report recently suggested that Peter will discover Nick and Leanne's affair but keep quiet until his wedding blessing on Valentine's Day.
