Coronation Street spoilers: Gemma Winter makes heartbreaking decision over tots’ future
It’s no secret to Coronation Street fans that poor Gemma Winter (Dolly Rose Campbell) has been majorly struggling with anxiety since giving birth to quads. The new mum is constantly worrying about their wellbeing and feeling like she’s a rubbish parent, all of which are starting to take their toll on her mental health.
Being bullied by the other mums at nursery didn’t help, leaving her a shell of her former self and a complete nervous wreck.
In recently episodes, she came clean to her mum Bernie (Jane Hazlegrove) about her struggles, calling it a “nightmare” and revealing she can’t cope.
When a health worker came to visit, she noticed that one of the quads Cleo, had lost weight, and Gemma blamed herself for not being able to produce enough milk for them all – just another thing to add to the list.
Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) however, doesn’t know what all this is doing to his girlfriend.

Her terror forces her to flee, leaving the pram aboard and the babies unattended.
Luckily Ches witnesses what has just happened and manages to sprint after the bus and rescues their tots.
As Gemma is left shaking with fear, Chesney becomes increasingly concerned about her state of mind and calls Bernie for help.
Will Gemma finally open up to Ches about how she’s been feeling?
It looks like she’s set to do just that, and as they return home she breaks down and confesses her worst nightmares about parenting to her surprised boyfriend.
But will this lead her to make a drastic decision?
No longer feeling in control, will Gemma decide to give her babies away?
