Most people in Coronation Street know that Gemma Winter has a chequered past after being involved in the violent and criminal gang led by Callum Logan. But theres something that she doesnt want everyone to know – and her brother Paul is blackmailing her over her secret.
Gemma was horrified to come face to face with Paul as he comes from a part of her past that she thought she had put behind her. Recently released from prison, Paul wants Gemmas help and refuses to be turned away – and it seems like he holds all of the cards.
Gemma paled when he warned her that her friends and neighbours would soon learn her secret if she didnt comply and she realised that she was trapped – but what is so bad that she feels everyone would turn against her if they knew?
It seems like Paul is sticking around which is bad news for Gemma but potentially good news for Billy Mayhew. Paul has made it clear that he has feelings for Billy, who got him a job at Underworld, and he has been flirting with him not too subtly.
Will romance be on the horizon – and will Gemma feel she has to warn the vicar off of her troublesome brother?
