Chesney asked her for a chat, offering her half a pork pie as he put off what he was about to say, but Gemma had her own news and told him to sit down so they could talk.
But before she could do it, he got there first, shocking her by saying he didnt think they were working and it would be best to call things off.
The news floored Gemma; for a moment it had seemed he wanted to talk about how to make things work. But he made it clear he wanted to go back to being friends and get back to having the laughs that they used to.
As a result, Gemma sat on her huge baby news having just learned she was pregnant after taking a test with Rita.
Chesney later caught her in a moment with Joseph as the child told her how much hed miss her allowing him to do fun things. Having watched the exchange from a distance, Chesney walked over and told Gemma shed make a great mum one day. Oh if only he knew.
