This Coronation Street favourite faces huge EMBARRASSMENT tonight!

Heavily pregnant Coronation Street favourite Gemma Winter faces a massively embarrassing situation into tonight’s double-bill when she gets her baby bump stuck in a football turnstile.

The drama starts when a thrilled Gemma (played by Dolly-Rose Campbell) tells Chesney that she’s managed to swipe free VIP tickets to County’s latest football match.

However, Gemma is horrified when she tries to squeeze through the narrow football turnstile and manages to get stuck! Surely there must have been a better way into the ground, Gemma?!

Eventually Gemma is freed but that’s not the end of her horror as she finds herself on the front page of the Gazette. So embarrassing!

But Gemma is then advised that she could make a fortune out of her story - after all not many people have got stuck in a football turnstile while expecting quads.

But the apparently light-hearted plot could have an awful tragic twist as later in the week Gemma complains to Chesney (played by Sam Aston) that she’s having stomach pains.

Gemma will be seen heading off to hospital - will she get terrible news? Or is everything ok with the quads?
