In Coronation Street, Gemma Winter (Dolly-Rose Campbell) just decided to resume taking antidepressants.
She recently acknowledged that she was beginning to exhibit the same symptoms she experienced when she suffered postpartum depression because of the cost of living issue, being a mother, working, and coping with Paul’s (Peter Ash) MND.
As if Gemma didn’t already have enough on her plate, she also consented to serve as Henry Newton’s (George Banks) personal assistant after he promised to purchase the Rovers in exchange for her services.
When Daniel’s (Rob Mallard) kid Bertie unintentionally ingested Gemma’s mental health prescription while she was sleeping, Gemma found herself in danger.
At the beginning of the next week, Henry will force himself on Gemma by luring her to a hotel and admitting that he has lost his job but still adores her and wants to spend the rest of his life with her.
After making it plain to Henry that she is married with children, Gemma is obviously in full shock, but what will be her response?
Later in the week, Bernie (Jane Hazlegrove) offers to help the family by contributing to the expenses, but Gemma won’t have any of it because she believes she is to blame for their predicament.
Can Gemma maintain emotional composure? An anxious Chesney voices his concerns, worried that the increasing stress may cause Gemma to get unwell once more.
Or if Gemma’s mental health deteriorates, will the family be faced with even greater difficulties?
