CORONATION Street fans spotted a massive blunder tonight when Peter Barlow returned from rehab – with a ‘Marbella tan’.
Viewers scoffed at Peter’s appearance as actor Chris Gascoigne stormed into the hospital to see Carla Connor.
While hundreds celebrated his return to rescue the factory owner, others were left scratching their heads and one remarked: “Is this clinic in Marbella Pete?”
Another said: “Good tan in rehab eh Peter.”
And one more raved: “Flipping heck Peter’s got a ridiculously good tan. He didn’t get that in Weatherfield”
Viewers weren’t far off the mark as actor Chris was in Lanzarote just two weeks ago, giving fans the thumbs up in a topless selfie on Instagram.
He shared another snap of his sunbathing spot and the stunning turquoise waters of the island’s Papagaya Beach.
Earlier this week, Chris posted another shot of him enjoying a drink with none other than Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp.
Chris, 51, shared the picture on Instagram to widespread excitement from fans.
Holding a bottle of beer and with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, Coronation Street actor Chris is seen pointing to the triple Oscar nominee.
Johnny definitely looks the less excited of the pair, dripping with jewellery, plastered in tattoos and sporting a wife-brimmed hat.
It’s not clear exactly how the pair came to be hanging out, but fans were thrilled to see them together.
One wrote: “That’s one night out I would have liked to have been on.”
Another said: “Two of my favorite actors.”

A third reckoned Chris put Johnny in the shade, writing: “Such a beautiful man, one of my favourite actors ever with that Depp bloke.”
Another insisted they’d like to be stuck between the Hollywood heartthrob and the Corrie star, asking: “Man sandwich anyone?”
Given Johnny once admitted spending “far more” than £22,000 a month on wine, he would do well to pop into the Rovers Return, where a whole bottle is just a tenner.
