CORONATION Street viewers have vowed to switch off after Peter Barlow began drinking again after failing to find Carla Connor.
The former recovering alcoholic – who is played by actor Chris Gascoyne in the ITV soap – hit the bottle hard tonight after failing to find his missing girlfriend Carla Connor.
Viewers watched in horror as he downed a bottle of whiskey after Carla, who is in the middle of a mental breakdown, hid from him in the squat she is sheltering in.
But after seeing Peter resorting to drinking again, fans are refusing to watch anymore.
One wrote: “If we have to watch Peter go through this drunken stage again, I will stop watching Corrie.
“Surely even the actor is sick of the same storyline too. Is that all you can come up for him ? Give it a rest …”
A second said: “Peter drinking is ridiculous. I can’t watch this misery porn anymore.”
Another added: “I honestly don’t know what has been worse: watching the usually strong natured Carla Connor have a mental breakdown or seeing a desperate Peter Barlow fall off the wagon #corrie”
But other viewers were heartbroken at the scenes showing Peter drinking again.
One wrote: “Aww poor Peter back drinking. So heartbreaking watching that scene! #Corrie”

It comes shortly after it was confirmed the identity of the person responsible for the factory collapse will be revealed at the end of May.
However tonight it was confirmed the police were looking at damage to the roof, which would clear Carla who didn’t purposefully damage the roof for an insurance job.
