Coronation Street: Bernie Winter’s return divides viewers

Bernie was concerned after hearing a voicemail from daughter Gemma

Viewers of Coronation Street have been left divided as Bernie Winter returned to the cobbles in last night’s episode (Monday, March 16).

Since the birth of her quads, Bernie’s daughter, Gemma, has been struggling to cope.

Despite refusing to admit she needs help, Gemma fell asleep in a baby group on Friday (March 13), and her friends suggested she call her mum home.

Gemma did call Bernie, but didn’t tell her how hard she was finding everything.

When she received the call though, Bernie could tell something wasn’t right and made plans to return.

Viewers were left divided by her comeback with some happy to see her again.

But some viewers were not glad to see her return.

One even begged Chesney to throw her out.

Although Gemma tried to make out things were fine, Bernie was unconvinced.

Bernie I missed you.

As Gemma went out, Bernie tried her best to help around the house.

When she returned, Gemma caught her up on everything that had been happening and told her about her friends Imogen and Vanessa from the baby group.

Soon Gemma’s twin Paul came around with boyfriend Billy and both were shocked to see Bernie back.

Will Paul and Bernie be able to get their relationship back on track?

Last month it was confirmed Bernie would make her way back to Coronation Street to help Gemma.

Dolly-Rose Campbell, who plays Gemma, has spoken to Digital Spy, about how Gemma really needs her mum now more than ever.

Dolly-Rose explained: “[Gemma] is not massively confident. It is all a front and now she feels more vulnerable than ever.

“She does have people offering to help her but she hates asking for it. She doesn’t want to admit she’s struggling to get everything done and her mum is not around anymore.”

When asked whether Gemma would like to see Bernie back, Dolly-Rose replied: “That is exactly what she needs.

“Bernie knows her better than anyone and it is going to take someone close to her to recognise what she is going through and that this is more than just struggling with the babies, she does need real help to get through this.”

Coronation Street airs on Monday and Wednesday at 7.30 and 8.30pm, and Friday at 7.30pm on ITV.
