In Coronation Street, Gemma Winter (Dolly-Rose Campbell) just begun working with her ex, Henry Newton (George Banks).
The fact that they had a former relationship wasn’t a major concern at first, but Henry later said to Gemma that he may consider buying the Rovers Return bar provided she worked as his personal assistant.
Gemma accepted this job offer with full knowledge that Henry was aware she was married to Chesney (Sam Aston) and had Joseph (William Flanagan) and the quads to care for. However, he doesn’t seem to care about this in forthcoming episodes.
Henry admits to loving Gemma with all of his heart and wanting to spend the rest of his life with her after enticing her to a hotel on the pretense of a business meeting. He then reveals there is no meeting and he has lost his job.
Gemma is extremely perplexed, which is understandable, but what will she say?
Given that Gemma is content with her life with her family and Chesney, this encounter is probably not going to go well.
Gemma and Henry were unquestionably a strange match (Image: ITV). “I think she makes him feel alive.” She helps him feel at ease with who he is, and he has never felt that way with anybody else.
George Banks reflected on the bond between Henry and Gemma and observed, “I do think it runs deeper with them as well.”
“I believe she gives him a sense of life.” She helps him feel at ease with who he is, and he has never felt that way with anybody else.
To have someone serve as a reminder that you can be entertaining, polite, and capable of helping someone who is struggling. He finds it to be rather intoxicating.
You already know how much fun I had playing Henry in the past; he is a wonderful character to play as well.
And I miss everyone up there since I had such a great time working on the performance the previous time. I was therefore excited about going back.
