There's heartache heading to Coronation Street as Emma and Chesney dramatically split - but as one relationship ends, a new romance begins...

Coronation Street has confirmed that Gemma Winter and Chesney Brown are finally set to get together next week in a shocking twist to the Gemma/Emma/Chesney love triangle.

Coronation Street fans will know that Gemma and Chesney have had the hots for each other for what feels like forever - but the wait for the pair to get together looks like it might finally be over according to the official website for Coronation Street.

At the start of next week it seems Emma and Chesney are still very much a couple, but thanks to a case of a stolen ring, Emma is set to realise that Gemma is the woman for Ches, not her.
