Emma Brooker (played by Alexandra Mardell) is one of Coronation Street’s most kind-hearted residents, ready and willing to help anyone in need of a pick-me-up.
The young Rovers barmaid even gave up her relationship with Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) so he could pursue a romance with Gemma Winter (Dolly-Rose Campbell).
After over a year on the ITV soap, Emma will take centre stage in a new storyline in the coming weeks as a tragic sequence of events will see her discover Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) is her father.
Such life-changing news could see Emma make a rash decision about her future in Weatherfield, after laying the man who raised her to rest.
Questions regarding Emma’s paternity will arise when mother Fiona Middleton (Angela Griffin) returns to the cobbles, over 20 years after her departure from the ITV soap.
Fiona will tell Emma the man who raised her has passed away, before going on to drop the bombshell he wasn’t her father and Steve is.
Emma is usually a gleeful character, but such news is set to show fans of the show another side to her persona and it seems the barmaid will pack her bags.
Recent on-location filming pictures show Emma actress Alexandra Mardell, 25, possibly shooting her exit scenes in wake of her character’s ordeal.
The barmaid is seen with a large suitcase in hand, hinting she’s ready to move away from the drama unravelling on the cobbles.
If it turns out Emma is making plans to leave, can friend Maria Connor (Samia Ghadie) convince her to stick around and deal with the repercussions of the news?
