Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street has released a trailer for next week's episodes, and the drama is really ramping up as we head towards Christmas.

One of the main stories next week revolves around Peter Barlow having a relapse. An argument with Carla Connor and being mugged will lead to Peter being offered some alcohol from a hip-flask from a passer-by, and he'll eventually pass out from drinking.

It's a major setback for the couple, with actress Alison King speaking about her character's reaction to his relapse and where they could go from here.

Another big ongoing story is the battle between Leanne Battersby and the hospital over Oliver's life support. While Steve McDonald has been a huge support for Leanne and has helped fight for their son, next week will see him change his mind and decide that he wants to let Oliver go... which Leanne will only feel betrayed by.

Another one of the biggest stories over the next two months will see a big twist next week too, as Craig Tinker will discover Ray Crosby's plan to buy up all the property on the Street and turn it into a modern development. The trailer shows Ray threatening Craig, but will the latter be bullied into silence?

Coronation Street airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
