Coronation Street is lining up a huge storyline for Gemma Winter, which will see her take centre stage through 2019.

The show’s boss Iain MacLeod has been revealing his plans for next year at a press event this week, describing Gemma’s new plot as “enormous, ludicrous and brilliant”.

Speaking about what’s coming up for Gemma, Iain said: “I do love that character and I think she’s at her best when she’s at the middle of everything causing trouble.

“There is another big story on the table for her that will play out over the next 12 months, where it’s fun, enormous, ludicrous and brilliant and will play to all of the actor’s strengths. It will see her doing something that is quite central to the show over the next 12 months or so.”

Iain also spoke about another comical storyline coming up for Gemma in the near future, where she unwittingly teaches young Joseph Brown a swear word.

He explained: “Basically Gemma ends up accidentally teaching the F-word to one of the kids on the Street, with amusing consequences.”

Discussing how this would be tackled pre-watershed, he added: “With judicious cutting! There’s a cut to a car horn and there’s also a Coronation Street cat licking itself as an option, but on reflection that might not be wholly appropriate!

“The child in question Joseph. As part of Chesney and Gemma’s ongoing will they/won’t they story, just when it looks like they will, she teaches Joseph quite a lot of rude words.

“She is cooking Chesney a meal and burns her hand and says ‘Mother-F…’ and then it pans outside to said cat. Unfortunately Joseph then takes that to school and may or may not say it to a teacher….”

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
