Tonight's Coronation Street double bill left fans reeling with shock after Billy Mayhew took his anger out on an unsuspecting Peter Barlow after a day of worry.

An emotional day for Summer on what would have been her dad's birthday, combined with Billy and Todd's wavering relationship, prompted her to smoke a strange cigarette that she'd pocketed earlier in the day, only for her to pass out unconscious and be taken to hospital afterwards.

As Billy and Todd faced a stressful day in the hospital while waiting for news about Summer, tensions hit an all-time high later when Peter Barlow tells Billy that Simon supplied Summer with the Spice cigarette as a prank that backfired – and Billy responds by lashing out.
