After being assaulted while his taxi was stolen, Peter had drunk some whisky from a passer by's hip flask, causing him to fall off the wagon and lash out at those he loves.

As soon as their night of passion was over, Adam and Carla realised the monumental mistake they had made and agreed to keep it between them.

Carla later confessed to Peter - though she didn't say it was Adam.

Peter was devastated to learn Carla had been unfaithful, but the pair eventually agreed to move on, and Peter has remained in the dark about who Carla cheated with.

The truth will be revealed 

However, that is all set to change in the coming weeks, with Peter consumed by trying to find out the identity of Carla's mystery man, having no idea it is his own nephew.

A source has told "The anniversary episodes will see a number of massive storylines culminate and Carla and Adam's secret will be at the heart of the drama for the Barlow clan.

"Secrets like this are a ticking time bomb and when they explode, they can destroy relationships and families, perhaps even beyond repair.

"Will Carla and Adam conceal what has happened, or is Peter in for a very cold winter as his world falls apart once more?"

Coronation Street airs on Mondays and Wednesdays 7.30pm and 8.30pm with an hour long episode at 7.30 on Fridays on ITV-  see our TV Guide for full listings.
