However, Gail could be set to walk away from the cobbles for good after receiving a tragic phone call from London.
Gail speaks to Ted’s partner Andrew who lets her know the sad news and invites her down to London.
Could this be the perfect opportunity for Gail to support her granddaughter now her children on the street all have families of their own?
Ted was last seen in Coronation Street in 2010 when he headed back to London and has been mentioned occasionally since.

Tracy overhears the conversation and heads straight to Debbie to strike a deal.
However, Debbie tells the Platt barber he’ll have the first refusal on the house while clarifying she won’t wait around for too long.
