Coronation Street barmaid Emma Brooker ‘to get major new love interest’

She is getting a brand-new storyline and her 'dream man'

Coronation Street character Emma Brooker will be getting a major new love interest, it has been revealed.

Barmaid Emma has been unlucky in love so far, with her flings all coming to nothing.

She arrived as a notch on David Platt‘s bedpost, before moving onto Chesney Brown and Seb Franklin.

Seb broke her heart after moving on with Alina Pop, though they broke up later too.

And, more recently, Emma suffered the heartbreaking loss of her brother Oliver.

There’s what I think will be a really brilliant storyline for Emma but I can’t talk about it in a lot of detail without giving it away.

Iain told The Sun: “There’s what I think will be a really brilliant storyline for Emma but I can’t talk about it in a lot of detail without giving it away.”

However, the storyline is going to come with a twist.

And it won’t be what Emma is expecting from a love story.

“There’s a massive new love story for Emma,” Iain added.

“Emma wants her Prince Charming and she’s going to get her wish, but it’s going to be a very interesting version of her wish.

“She’s going to get the man of her dreams.”

A happy Christmas at Corrie

After Oliver’s death and other dark storylines, it seems the happy times will be returning to the soap soon.
