Alcoholic spoils romantic meal...

It’s uncomfortable on Coronation Street this week as Michelle Connor and Peter Barlow date.

Peter, played by Chris Gascoyne, is hopeful as he treats Michelle, portrayed by Kym Marsh, to a meal at a fancy restaurant.

Michelle pulls out all of the stops for her date in a red and black, round-neck dress, displaying both her shoulders and collarbones.

The Weatherfield beauty sweeps her thick brunette locks into a high side bun, leaving out some tousled strands towards the front, which frame her face.

Michelle wears heavy eyeliner and mascara for her meal and keeps her accessories to a minimum – only opting for a chunky silver bangle.

Peter looks equally as charming, teaming a crisp white shirt with a deep purple tie.

However, despite both of their efforts, things quickly turn sour for the Coronation Street couple.

Michelle causes tension between the pair when she orders a glass of white wine to their table for two.

After the raven-haired barmaid orders her drink, Peter begins to discuss the affect alcohol has on him and is unable to stop.  

Michelle struggles to make eye contact with Peter as he speaks about his troubles and it becomes clear that she has lost all interest.

The atmosphere in the restaurant appears very awkward as Michelle leaves her meal unfinished and spends the evening staring across the room.

Facing the bar, Peter’s tetchiness takes over the date and his talking completely ruins it for them both.

It seems Michelle can’t escape from the date quickly enough and is desperate to be back on the cobbles of Weatherfield.
