Dead drunk! Pete hits the bottle, falls down the stairs and is knocked out

Pete Barton

Pete drowns his sorrows and ends up falling down the stairs knocking himself unconscious

At Dale View, Pete is in a dark place. Things with his ex, Leyla, haven't gone well, he's grieving the loss of his beloved youngest brother Finn, and with his mum Emma's murder still unsolved it's fair to say he's in the middle of a nightmare. Hitting the bottle to drown his sorrows, Pete goes way too hard at it and ends up falling down the stairs knocking himself unconscious! When Ross arrives home, he's shocked to find his brother out cold, and calls an ambulance.

Christmas is looming and arrangements are being made. Rhona wishes she was going to spend it with her ex-husband Paddy and son Leo - but reluctantly accepts Vanessa's invite to spend it with her.
