Coronation Street SPOILER: Gemma Winter’s bad boy brother to arrive – and viewers have already met him

Gemma's in for a shock

Gemma Winter is reportedly in for a shock in Coronation Street when her bad boy brother turns up – though viewers have already met him.

The barmaid has tried her best to leave her rough past on the estate behind but that’s going to be made more difficult when her brother Paul arrives to cause trouble.

A source told The Daily Star Sunday: “We’ve already had a little taster of what Paul’s about and it was pretty clear that he’d been in prison before when he shared a cell with David.

“So it’s going to be interesting to see what he makes of Gemma’s new life in Weatherfield.

“She’s managed to escape her past and is enjoying a nice life.

“Her brother turning up is going to certainly shake things up for her.”

It was previously revealed how David Platt is going to be left horrified when Paul arrives on the cobbles.

After being raped by Josh Tucker, David was forced to relive the assault every day in his mind as he struggled with the aftermath.

Josh stayed in town, despite his crimes – and rubbed David’s face in it every day.

In scenes to air in the coming weeks, David’s prison cellmate Paul Foreman turns up on the cobbles.

Having been released from jail, Paul arrives on David’s doorstep six months after the pair last saw each other in jail.

An insider told The Sun: “David isn’t going to know what to do when he sees Paul on the cobbles.”

They continued: “He and Paul got on well in prison, but David doesn’t want to think about that time. So when he sees him on the cobbles he’s confused and horrified.”

Viewers know David was locked up for missing a court date after attacking Gary Windass during a charity boxing match.

Although David and Paul got on, Paul was on the receiving end of David’s anger after trying to wake him up one day and taking him by surprise.

The newspaper reports that the ITV soap was keen to bring actor Peter Ash back after he impressed them with his performance.

An insider revealed: “Bosses were really impressed by Peter and viewers loved him. It was a no brainer to bring him back for a longer stint.”

Actor Peter recently appeared as drug dealer Ron in Hollyoaks, but previously starred in Footballers’ Wives opposite fellow Corrie star Ben Price, who plays Nick Tilsley.

Whatever Paul’s intentions are, we doubt David will welcome his former cellmate with open arms especially when he discovers who he really is.
