Coronation Street viewers have been left devastated after Wednesday's episode, during which Peter Barlow (Chris Gascoyne) said he was dying.
He is back in hospital after a relapse of his alcoholism, and his dad Ken Barlow (Bill Roache) went in to see him for a visit.
But Ken was left in disbelief when his son told him he didn't have much time left to live.
Peter said: "I'm dying. Just because you don't want to believe it, doesn't mean it's not true."
Ken urged: "Give it some time, the doctors said you'd feel better in a few days."
However Peter continued: "Don't think I will. I'm not confused. After everything that's happened, with Carla and Adam, the police after me – I just don't have the energy to keep going anymore dad, I'm sorry."
