Gemma Winter gets a big surprise tonight when an intruder in her home turns out to be none other than her brother Paul – and he is set to throw her life into chaos as she confronts her past in Coronation Street.
Viewers knew that Gemma was in a bad crowd when she first arrived, with her working alongside villainous thug Callum Logan. Since then, she has turned her life around and made a lot of progress and friends on the Street.
We met Paul when David Platt ended up in prison for beating up Gary Windass and became his cellmate. Now that Paul has been released, he reached out to David and has also taken quite the shine to Billy Mayhew, who helped him find work at Underworld.
But when Chesney Brown gives chase to an intruder in Gemmas home, Pauls hood is pulled back and Gemma realises that her brother is the surprise visitor. But what does he want with Gemma and what kind of relationship do they have?
Does Paul come from a past that Gemma would rather forget?
Coronation Street airs these scenes on Friday 4th January at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
