On, “Coronation Street,” Peter Barlow likes big tips, and he cannot lie! But the taxi driver has the best of intentions: he keeps picking up big tipper and flirt Chloe Tipton because he has to fund his girlfriend’s IVF treatment.
Poor Peter is in a bind; he loves Toyah Battersby and wants to make her happy. Having a baby will cement their relationship but first they need to accumulate enough money for IVF treatments.
This is where Chloe comes into the picture, of course complicating matters. Chloe likes Peter and has made no bones about it. Thus far Peter has resisted her advances, but how much will power does one man have?
Perhaps sensing his crumbling resolve, Chloe takes it upon herself to pull a ruse on Peter, and get him all alone. When the cunning temptress tells Peter that her ex-boyfriend is harassing her, he jumps to her defense and does the noble thing.
Heroic Peter tells Chloe he’ll drive her home, plus accompany her inside to guarantee her safety. Then, when clueless Peter tells Toyah that he’s concerned about one of his fares, she tells him to do what he needs to do to take care of things.
Thinking that he’s doing Chloe a favor, Peter buys some new locks and goes over to install them. Of course Chloe is appreciative, and she wants to show him just how grateful she is!
What will Peter do when Chloe offers to repay his kindness with her, um, ample assets? Will he be able to resist her temptations just as he has resisted his urges to drink and gamble?
Or will he fold like a cheap suit and take Chloe up on her generous offer?
Later, Peter will have to confront another passionate woman when he returns home. It seems that Toyah has found the tip money he’s been stashing, and she wants some straight-up answers from him, now! Has Peter done something he’s going to live to regret?
