She’s carted off by the police when Rita accuses her lodger of stealing
Gemma’s come a long way since being Callum Logan’s lackey, but the kebab seller finds herself going back to her old ways when she gets a visit from two old mates.
When the girls in question – Zoe and Roxy – turn up, Gemma takes them to Rita’s flat to raid the drinks cabinet. ‘Some of it is showing off, and proving how she’s turned her life around, but also trying to fit in,’ says star Dolly-rose Campbell.
Rita’s not impressed to find her front room resembles a second-rate night club, and turfs out the pair. Gemma’s initially miffed, until she finds out that Rita has suggested to Jenny that she asks her young lodger to be her bridesmaid.
Zoe and Roxy aren’t so forgiving, and when they discover Rita hasn’t locked The Kabin, they get their own back. So when Norris opens up the following morning, he’s horrified to see the shop’s been ransacked.
When police are called and they point out there’s no sign of a forced entry, Rita then discovers her purse is £100 down and realises someone’s been in her bag and could have taken the Kabin keys at the same time.
Gemma and her mates are the obvious suspects and despite Gemma assuring her friend that she would never steal from her, she ends up getting arrested. Can she prove to Reet that she’s got it all wrong?
