Coronation Street: Gemma and Chesney argue over money
It looks like Coronation Street’s Gemma Winter (played by Dolly-Rose Campbell) is about to take matters into her own hands.
Fans of the ITV soap saw Bernie Winter (Jane Hazlegrove) land herself in hot water after getting involved in a scam involving the late Shelly Rossington (Natalie Amber).
The duo were selling stolen goods illegally as Bernie wanted to help get some extra cash for her son Paul Foreman (Peter Ash) who has MND.
After being arrested, the family have been waiting to see whether or not she’ll be spending Christmas with them, as it will most likely be Paul’s last.
Official spoilers reveal that next week, the time comes for Bernie to discover how long she’ll be getting sentenced.

The family are devastated when they learn their mum will be spending three months behind bars, as she’s told she has to serve at least half.
As they realise she won’t be there to see Paul’s final Christmas, Gemma is left furious at the outcome.
Deciding to take matters into her own hands, she lures Big Garth (Victor McGuire) who was Bernie’s selling accomplice to Victoria Street.

It looks as though matters go from bad to worse for Gemma after accidentally poisoning her stepson Joseph Brown (William Flanagan).
Later on in the week, following Bernie’s sentencing, Joseph complains he has a headache.
As Gemma goes to find some painkillers to help the pain, she’s interrupted by a knock on the door.
Taken aback, she discovers it’s child protection officer Caitlin, who is deeply unimpressed as she takes in the scene.
Although things seem to be going south for the Winter family, there’s a slight bit of cheer next week when they decide to celebrate Christmas early.
Speaking about Paul’s final festive season on the cobbles, boss Iain Macleod told The Sun: “There’s a really fascinating exploration of their history – that family was scattered before the winds for a lot of the twins’ childhood.
“It wasn’t an easy time, they didn’t have much money, and there was Paul’s historically abusive stepfather.
“There’s a lot of really poignant stuff as well, so what we’ve tried to do is make it bittersweet and as realistic as far as we could and a fitting, funny but poignant last Christmas for Paul with that fantastic family at the centre of it all.”
Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on ITV from 8pm.
