This week saw Shona reveal her secret to Gail that she's really Clayton's mum. The two women agreed not to spill the beans on the other. If Gail keeps quiet about Shona being a mum to a murderous little toe-rag, then Shona will do the same.
This started me wondering if Shona was going to be Gail's new best mate. But the more I thought about it, if these two pall up, then Shona would be Gail's only mate...
These days, Gail spends more time with her mum Audrey than with any other female. Her once strong friendship with Sally seems all but forgotten.
I reckon it's time Gail's mate Tricia Hopkins called in to see her again. Tricia was the reason that Gail joined Coronation Street in the first place.
The actress who played Tricia Hopkins is a lovely lady by the name of Kathy Jones. Kathy was interviewed on The Corrie Years. You can see her in action in the Gail Potter section starting here at 1'.12" via YouTube.
