I wonder how Peter is going to exit then if he's not going to prison? 🤔#Corrie

Will miss watching him play Peter Barlow when he leaves the show. Hopefully he will return to the role in the future.@itvcorrie #Corrie #PeterBarlow#ChrisGascoyne pic.twitter.com/Ijgi4yuZyN

There are also hopes that Peter’s departure will not be permanent, with fans expressing a desire to see the character return in the future. Despite their concerns about Peter leaving, some viewers have also expressed frustration with certain characters on the show for their actions.
Peter’s exit will be a massive relapse perhaps?? Easy for the writers to send him off the wagon (he still blames himself in spite of the Police decision) #Corrie
