Why Gemma and Henry could be classic Corrie gold

One of the highlights of Coronation Street, for this fan, right now is the Gemma and Henry storyline. Henry, or 'Newt' as he's known to his friends, will of course turn out to be Henry Newton.  

And if that name sounds familiar, then it should.  

Henry Newton is heir to the Newton part of the Newton & Ridley brewery who supplies the beers to all the best backstreet pubs in the Manchester area, the Rovers Return included.

But Gemma doesn't know this yet. She has no idea who Henry is, only that she fancies him. And he fancies her. What's not to like?

Well, the previews already tell us that Liz will be the one to rain on Gemma's parade when she tells her who her new fella is. Gemma goes into a slump, thinking that she's nowhere near good enough for Newt.

I say, give it time and let's hope Gemma and Newt end up behind the bar of the Rovers together. Now wouldn't that be something? Gemma as the new Bet Lynch!

Wow, Gemma eventually behind the bar of the Rovers - what a neat thought!

Great idea. Corrie is sadly lacking in the comedy area these days. We have actually started calling it "Misery Street".

Oh, I love the idea of Gemma, with a few more years under her belt, behind the bar. And blending in with the wealthy set. And a posh boy getting a bit streetwise. Would that Rita lasted long enough to see it.
