Peter Barlow (played by Chris Gascoyne) has been looking after Carla Connor (Alison King) as she battles with her mental health after blaming herself for the Underworld factory roof collapse.
Coronation Street fans have watched Peter put his own struggles aside to help Carla and the former couple have been growing closer as Carla does her best to recover.
Alison, who plays the cobbles resident, has hinted at a happy ending for the pair after their past ups and downs.
Talking to The Mirror about how Peter has supported her character, she confessed: “It is really important, he has shown her that he will do anything for her still and she can trust him.
“He has literally saved her through his perseverance and believing that Carla is still in there and the belief she can come back, that is worth fighting for so I think they will become more solid than they have ever been.”
Carla suffered a mental breakdown after the factory roof collapse and fled the Street in the aftermath when she was unable to cope.
Despite the collapse being caused by someone tampering with the roof, Carla blamed herself because she knew the roof was damaged.
The Coronation Street resident’s paranoia has been getting increasingly worse over the last few weeks.
As a recovering alcoholic, Peter has been risking his own health as he tries to help his former lover.
In episodes airing next week, viewers will see her psychosis reach scary heights and Peter will risk his recover again to help her.
Meanwhile, Andrea Beckett (Hayley Tamaddon) could return to the ITV soap to start up a romance with Steve McDonald (Simon Greyson).
During an appearance on Lorraine, the actress who plays the Coronation Street star admitted that she would love to rejoin the cast.
Hayley teased: “It would be a dream to go back to Corrie it really would.
“I see my friends from Corrie all the time, I’m so close to them,” she continued.
Andrea bowed out of the soap during the live episode screened as part of ITV’s 60th anniversary celebrations.
Hayley joined the soap in 2013 as Steve McDonald’s night school pal and left two years later.
Steve is now happily remarried to Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford) so Andrea’s return could stir up trouble for the couple.
Hinting at potential storylines, Hayley told Lorraine that she would love to make things interesting for Steve.
She remarked: “There’s always a chance she could come back and cause a bit of chaos with Steve.”
