HEARTBROKEN Gail Platt discusses her dad Ted’s funeral arrangements with his partner Andrew next week in Coronation Street.
Gail – who is played by Helen Worth in the ITV soap – will receive a call telling her the awful news that Ted has passed away this week.
Longtime Corrie viewers will remember that Gail first came face-to-face with her dad when he rocked up to the cobbles unannounced in 2008.
In a shock twist, Ted announced he was gay and that he’d been in a relationship with a man called James for years, but that he’d recently passed away.
It then came to light that Audrey dumped soldier Ted after she discovered she was pregnant with Gail at the age of 18.
It was also revealed that Ted had no idea Audrey was pregnant with his baby when he left after she turned down his proposal – and no idea Gail existed.
Ted then moved into the family house and gave Gail away when she made the disastrous decision to marry ill-fated Joe McIntyre, before departing from the cobbles in 2010 when the marriage went terribly wrong.
