'Coronation Street' kebab shop worker Gemma Winter has found a new man - but she doesn't realised quite how posh he is
Coronation Street's Gemma Winter is set to bag herself a posh new boyfriend.
The kebab shop worker - played by Dolly-Rose Campbell - hasn't had much luck in the love department recently but all of that is about to change for her as she will find herself falling in love with the "heir" to the Rover's Return pub's fortune.
Gemma is clueless to her new man's success until she proudly parades him around the boozer and Liz McDonald (Bev Callard) recognises his face.
Liz said: "Well, you have certainly landed on your feet there, lady... Check out the beer mat. He's Cecil Newton's grandson. He's beer royalty!"
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Gemma is simply knocked for six by the revelation. It means he is not only handsome but he'll be heir to the Newton and Ridley fortune."
Meanwhile, actress Dolly previously revealed her inspiration behind the performance she puts into Gemma - admitting that some of her traits come from people she knows/
Speaking on 'Lorraine' last year she explained: "I think she's [Gemma is] brilliant. I really like her. What I bring to her is based on people I know.
"Some of the things that she does, some of the way she does stuff is kind of stolen from people, but I never tell the people."
