Gemma Winter is set to be heartbroken in Coronation Street tonight when she discovers the devastating truth about Henry Newton – he has only been dating her as part of a cruel bet with his mate Hugo.
Both of the malicious men have been with a girlfriend who they have led on – with the person who sticks to the relationship for the most time getting £5000 from the other. Fans have known that Gemma has been on the road to heartbreak after seeing Henry mock her over the phone not long after she declared her love.
Tonight, Chesney overhears Hugo laughing about Gemma and then talking about the bet with Henry and he immediately warns his friend that she is being made a fool of. Believing Chesney, Gemma is gutted – and the fact that Henry feels remorse and has even fallen for her means nothing to her.
As she is left gutted by the turn of events, Chesney worries for her and later in the week, when Henry tries to make amends, Gemma wastes no time in punching him across the face.
Grateful that Chesney has stood up for her, will Gemma realise that her ideal man has been in front of her very eyes for all of this time? Or will she decide that she needs to be single after the way that Henry treated her?
Coronation Street continues on Monday 5th February at 7:30pm and 8:30pm on ITV.
