Sam Aston interview: Chesney begs Gemma to seek help


Has Chesney noticed how much Gemma is struggling?

He knows she hasn’t been doing too well but he has also been under pressure so he hasn't really thought it is anything more than just the stress of having all the children to deal with. Bernie and Gemma didn't tell him about the doctor’s appointment so he is in the dark. He is also a bit annoyed about the fact that Bernie has moved back in and that the two of them are rowing.

Do things look more positive when Aled gets his hearing aid?

Chesney and Gemma both feel as though this has massively improved the situation. When Aled finally hears their voices it is a huge moment and Gemma feels that she can cope on her own without Bernie’s help.

Is Chesney pleased to get rid of Bernie?

To be honest, he is a bit baffled that she is leaving, he does think they need the help, even though she is a bit of a pain to have around she is an extra pair of hands. Bernie tells him to keep an eye on Gemma but the real problem is that Gemma doesn’t want to open up to Chesney, she is in denial and as Bernie hasn't told him about the nature of her concerns he doesn't push it.

What happens when Gemma leaves the babies on the bus?

All Chesney sees is Gemma get on the bus with the quads and then suddenly get off leaving them on board. He is horrified and has to run after the bus to rescue the babies. He is out of his depth and calls Bernie.

What happens when he tries to talk to Gemma?

He and Bernie try to talk to her but she gets upset and refuses to speak to them both and storms out of the house. Chesney is worried sick but when she returns having spoken to Rita she finally tells him just how bad things have got and that she is a terrible mother. Chesney is horrified to realise she has been feeling like this and he realises she needs to see the doctor.

What has it been like filming this storyline?

Chesney and Gemma are more known for their comedy storylines so it has been interesting to explore a serious issue and to be able to highlight the difficulties that new parents can face. Hopefully we might be able to help someone else recognise if they are going through something similar and maybe encourage them to seek help.
