    Things aren't looking to get any easier for new parents Gemma Winter and Chesney Brown, as the Coronation Street couple are set to get some life-changing news about one of the quadruplets.

    As well as dealing with the fallout from an upcoming house fire, the couple will have to come to terms with the news that their baby boy Aled is deaf.

    The ITV soap has worked alongside Trafford Deaf Children's Society and Great Ormond Street Hospital on the storyline, which hopes to raise awareness of how a hearing diagnosis can affect the whole family and shine a light on the help that is out there for them.

    A spokesperson for the soap told Digital Spy: "This is a very important story to tell and will resonate with many parents who have gone through their children being diagnosed with hearing problems and the challenges that this throws up for the child, the parents and the whole family."

    Elsewhere on the Cobbles, Gemma and Chesney's home is nearly set on fire after someone pushes a burning rag through the letterbox and spray paints 'PAEDO' over the window, mistakenly believing Bernie's ex-boyfriend Kel lives there.

    A stunned Chesney arrives home to realise that Gemma is asleep upstairs with the quads, but with the help of Abi, manages to put out the flames before anyone gets seriously hurt.

    For more information on the help and support available for deaf children and their families, please visit the National Deaf Children's Society.

    Coronation Street star Dolly-Rose Campbell has hinted that the show will be exploring a mental health storyline for Gemma Winter.

    The ITV soap has recently been showing personal struggles for Gemma, who has doubted her parenting abilities since becoming a mum to quadruplets.

    Next week's episodes see Gemma attend a baby senses class with the quads, marking the beginning of a new chapter in the story.

    Class leader Vanessa and her friend Imogen make an effort to get to know Gemma, complimenting her on her parenting skills. Gemma laps up the attention, unaware that the spiteful pair are mocking her behind her back.

    Speaking about the new storyline, Dolly-Rose explained: "Gemma finds it quite comforting to meet other mums who seem to be supportive of her and meet other mums who are going through similar struggles to her and that is just with one baby. She had felt very isolated as she doesn't have friends who have babies.

    "On the face of it, Vanessa and Imogen are not Gemma's usual type of people. They seem very posh, neat and tidy and well put together. They look like they are in control and are breezing through motherhood, so in some way they are what she aspires to be.

    "They are the Freshco's personified. So to be accepted on the face of it by these yummy mummies makes her feel great and less alone.

    "Gemma doesn't know that they find her a figure of fun and are laughing at her, not with her, which is awful. They aren't genuine at all. They like her because it gives them someone to look down on. She makes them feel better about themselves because they are grateful they are not like her and they are coping better than her."

    Dolly-Rose added that there may be more to Gemma's low moods than initially meets the eye, hinting at a possible depression story.

    She said: "Meeting these women, while she enjoys spending time with them, isn't helping Gemma's feelings of inadequacy. But as time goes on, it is going to become clear that there is more to it than that.

    "Gemma has no idea that this may be a medical problem she does not know that at this stage."
