Gemma (played by Dolly-Rose Campbell) is about to discover that she’s bringing a brand new life into the world on Coronation Street.
It unfolds as Gemma starts to feel unwell and hungover on the morning of baby Bertie’s christening.
As a result, she can’t go to the event and Chesney (Sam Aston) isn’t happy about it on the ITV soap.
To make it up to her boyfriend, Gemma takes it upon herself to make Chesney a fish pie.
But in true Gemma fashion it ends up a disaster when she falls asleep and burns the dish.
Gemma then goes to Rita Tanner’s (Barbara Knox) house to share her woes with the pensioner.
Rita wonders if the sickness Gemma is experiencing could be something else and suggests she take a pregnancy test.
Much to Gemma’s surprise, the test result is positive.
Chesney later finds Gemma leaning against a wall as she feels faint.
He is insistent that she goes to a medical centre seeing as she is in such a state.
At the doctor’s surgery, Gemma tells the medic the baby was unplanned and that she is scared about the prospect of having the child.
While Chesney already has a son, Joseph, this would be Gemma’s first baby.
The storyline comes after earlier in the year it was reported by The Sun that Gemma and Chesney would be having quadruplets.
A source told the publication: “The show’s new boss, Iain MacLeod, is keen to inject a bit of old-fashioned humour into Coronation Street like in the years gone by and this storyline will have viewers in stitches.
“Gemma doesn’t miss a trick and instantly thinks of ways she can make some dosh out of her and Chesney’s unexpected news.”
Viewers will have to wait and see if it turns out the pair will get more than they bargained for.
Meanwhile, later this week, Gemma and Chesney will head off on a camping mini-break where things quickly go awry.
Gemma is excited to spend a few days shacked up with Chesney in her friend’s caravan but it isn’t what it seems.
The caravan turns out to be a rather dingy affair and the moods sours.
To makes matters worse, when they turn the electric on in the van it becomes clear it used to be a cannabis farm.
Coronation Street continues tomorrow at 7.30pm on ITV.
