I'M relieved the Peter Barlow love triangle is finally coming to an end.: I thought the Tricky Dicky storyline dragged on a bit but this one seems to have been going on for years.: Lucy turned up at hospital ready to have Peter's baby on Friday and, with his wedding to Shelley fast approaching, it's clear there's going to be fireworks this week.: Dim Shelley has no idea about Peter's naughty behaviour and I find it pretty astounding that mouthy man-eater Tracy hasn't had the decency to tell Shelley Peter's only just got wed to another woman.: But, while it's curtains for Peter, at least Curly and Emma seem to have found a happy ending.
