Gail’s father last appeared on Coronation Street in 2010. But who is her father?
On today’s episode of Corrie (Wednesday January 27), Gail mentioned that she had tried to contact her father to find out something about Lady Fanny from her family photo album.
Since her father didn’t answer, Gail posted the photo on a genealogy website and found out she was her great-great-grandmother.
But who is Gail’s father? What happened to him?
Who is Gail’s dad on Coronation Street?
Gail is the daughter of Audrey Roberts and Ted Page.
In the 1950s, Ted and Audrey were in a relationship and he suggested her. But she declined his suggestion and he left without knowing that she was pregnant.
In 2008, Audrey reached out to Ted. He revealed to her that he was gay and married a man named James in 2006, but James died that same year.
Audrey told Ted about Gail and at first he was mad at her for missing seeing his daughter grow up. And had missed quite a few of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
But when he met Gail, they connected immediately. While on the street, Ted became friends with Ken Barlow.
