Gemma is accused of purposely poisoning Joseph in Corrie

Will Joseph be OK?

When Joseph tells her that he doesn’t feel well, Gemma’s sceptical, aware she overreacted the last time. But when Chesney’s called out of work to pick him up from school, he berates Gemma for not realising he was ill.

When Chesney suggests she’s not coping, Gemma takes offence and branding herself a terrible mother, slams out. 

As Gemma prepares for their early Christmas, Chesney remarks that Joseph still seems unwell, and on Bernie’s advice, Gemma makes Joseph drink lavender tea in the hope it will perk him up. But when Joseph passes out, Chesney’s horrified and calls an ambulance.

In the hospital, Chesney blames himself as the doctor tends to Joseph, wishing he’d listened to Gemma all along. And Chesney and Gemma are both shocked when the doctor drops the bombshell that Joseph’s been poisoned.

Meanwhile, in the flower shop flat, Billy shows Paul the Christmas jumpers he’s bought, determined they get into a Christmassy mood for lunch at No.5.

With the Christmas lunch in full swing with Paul, Billy, Bernie, Gemma and the quads having a great time, the mood is killed when Chesney and Joseph return home from the hospital with a child protection officer who wants to interview Gemma.

With everyone out of the house, Caitlin questions a horrified Gemma and suggests that she may have poisoned Joseph on purpose. 

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1
