Is Peter Barlow going to die in Coronation Street?

Corrie viewers know that Peter has rejected all potential ways to save his life after being diagnosed with liver failure. 

The alcoholic even refused Daniel Osbourne’s offer to be his liver donor if they’re a match, and asked Adam to draw up an ‘Advance Decision to Refuse Treatment’ declaration so he could die on his own terms.

Corrie fans have been left fearing the worst for Peter. 

One wrote: “#corrie is Peter going to die?”

Another added: “Peter had better not die.”

A third worried viewer added: “I don’t want Peter to die.”

Fans will be relieved to hear there’s no word as yet from Coronation Street or actor Chris Gascoyne about Peter’s departure from the cobbles. 

But with exact plot details yet to be confirmed, viewers will have to stay tuned to see if Peter makes a recovery.
