Gemma Winter (played by Dolly-Rose Campbell) and Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) have slowly got settled as they look after their quads and Joseph. After a tough year in lockdown, the Coronation Street couple are getting back to normal with son Aled scheduled for a doctor’s appointment to talk about being deaf. However, Gemma and Chesney will be at loggerheads as they argue over what is best for their son.
Baby Aled was recently diagnosed with profound permanent hearing loss in both ears.
In coming scenes, Aled’s consultant confirms he’s an ideal candidate for a cochlear implant operation.
Chesney’s thrilled but Gemma’s not convinced the procedure is necessary.
When she says she doesn’t want Aled to have the operation as there are too many risks, Chesney’s shocked and asks Freda (Ali Briggs) to come round to talk about No.5 the pros and cons of the op.

There’s also the possibility Gemma sees how busy her partner is and isn’t committed to learning sign language.
She may decide to put Aled first and ensure he doesn’t miss out on anything.
Could Chesney’s lack of interest in learning sign language prompt Gemma to agree to the surgery?
The storyline marks the first appearance of Freda since she left the cobbles in 2019 with Norris Cole (Malcolm Hebden).
But Fiz has the last laugh when Tyrone’s grandmother Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman) mocks his new looks.
Embarrassed Tyrone admits Alina picks his clothes out leaving Fiz even more irate as she realises how much control she has over her ex.
Tensions are already high between the couple with Fiz trying to stop Tyrone from seeing his daughter Ruby as revenge for his decision to leave her.
Fans of the ITV soap are divided over the storyline with some branding Alina and Tyrone’s pairing as “awful”.
