A source told the publication: "It's been a storyline full of ups and downs.

"For Gemma to go into labour while riding a cable car sums up that they haven't had things easy. But fans will be delighted that it will be a happy ending."

However, not all fans are happy with Gemma taking centre stage on the show, with her character drawing ire from viewers at home.

When she was a rarely-used character, fans loved her for the occasional comic relief. But she has risen to prominence in the show, and that has seen fans hit out at her being "overused".

One said: "Any comedy value Gemma might have supplied has long gone, the character's now just stupid and annoying! #corrie."

Another added: "I feel like it's becoming an American soap opera #Corrie. Gemma used to be my fave, now she shouts every word. And four babies... really? Her and Ches were bffs now this?"
