By  |  0 Comments

Peter has been keeping secrets ever since he walked back into Weatherfield. As Christmas approaches it becomes clear, that as usual with Peter, a woman is involved. When he’s overheard booking a hotel room and caught wrapping a present to the love of his life it looks like his mystery woman is about to be revealed. Nick is convinced he’s making a play for Leanne as he watches her and Peter bond again over Simon – what is Peter’s game?

What are your plans for this Christmas?
I will just be having a quiet Christmas with all my family.

What does Christmas mean to you?
It’s memories isn’t it really, once you get to a certain age. It’s also a nice time to be with your family. I do really like Christmas and it reminds me of when I was young spending time with my family and of course you miss the people who aren’t there anymore. It’s a time for reflection.

What is the best Christmas present you have ever received?
It was a football game called Subbuteo in the 1970s and I loved it. Another boy who lived down the road from me had it for quite a while before me so I was just thrilled when I got that.

What will you be watching on TV this Christmas?
I’m not sure yet because I haven’t got my Radio Times! I like to buy the Radio Times and go through it and ring all the programmes that I want to watch, that is how boring I am! I love all the television programmes at Christmas and watching I’ll be Coronation Street on Christmas Day.

What is your secret to a stress free Christmas?
Break it up a bit as you don’t have to be together all the time. Go and do something else; go out, go for a walk, do other things. But I don’t think there is any such thing as a stress-free Christmas is there?
