Coronation Street actors Alison King and Chris Gascoyne, who play Carla Connor and Peter Barlow, will be taking a four month break from Corrie this summer.
The official ITV Corrie website say that both Alison and Chris will be taking time away from filming to spend time with their families this summer. They will return towards the end of the year.
As for their on-screen characters Carla and Peter, the custody battle for little Simon hots up. Peter and Carla try to flee the country, but it's not clear if Simon will be going with them or if Leanne wins the battle to become Simon’s full time carer.
Many Corrie fans at Manchester's Victoria train station watched these scenes being filmed earlier this week when Corrie went out on location.
