Tonight’s instalment of the ITV soap saw Toyah devastated when Peter stressed that he didn’t want more children – something Toyah (played by Georgia Taylor) has pined for her whole life.
So, when her spouse Toby arrived on her doorstep pleading for a child, it’s no surprise Toyah fell on to his lips.
“[Peter] doesn’t even want kids, does he?” Toby fumed.
“It feels like it’s too late,” Toyah cried.

Toby begged: “We belong together you and me. You’d be such a lovely mum. It would be tragic if you never got the chance.”
But the Coronation Street fans at home showed little sympathy for the “cheating b***h” and didn’t hesitate to vent their frustration on Twitter.
“Err Toyah what you doing? thought Peter was love of your life like,” wrote one dismayed audience member, as another fumed: “Oh Toyah you cheating b***h. First you cheat on your husband with Peter now you cheat on Peter with your husband!”

“Why is Toyah leaving the old boyfriend again!? … I can't see the reason from tonight's episode,” wrote one more, before a fourth cried: “Noooo! Toyah!”
Georgia, 36, appeared on This Morning today, where she admitted Toyah will be torn over her love for Peter (Chris Gascoyne) and her maternal instinct.
She explained: “She’s head over heels in love with Peter but she desperately wants a child. She has to choose one or the other.”
Coronation Street continues tonight at 7.30pm on ITV.
