Gemma Willis and Glen Donnelly’s romance is being revisited, according to Beth Buchanan of Neighbours.
As part of her daughter Roxy’s wedding storyline, Gemma returned to Erinsborough this month, which led to her reuniting with her old flame Glen (Richard Huggett) for the first time in years.
The drama continues next week with Gemma and Glen sharing an obvious spark, which a jealous Terese notices (Rebekah Elmaloglou).
“It was a surprise to Gemma when she returned and discovered Glen there,” Beth told Digital Spy. “It was a little bit difficult, since they had to explain how they knew each other and how they were seeing each other a few years back.”
“But they quickly forget about it and everything is OK. I believe that, as a result of her recent divorce, Gemma is now ready to go on a date.
“Perhaps she’s thinking to herself, ‘Why not?’ as she looks at Glen. He’s a little flirty.
“Terese is getting envious, but Gemma isn’t aware of it. She is completely unaware of what is going on between Glen and Terese.”
Because Glen has a love relationship with Kyle’s mother Sharon in next week’s shows, viewers will have to check in to watch how the tale unfolds.
Meanwhile, after initially opposing Roxy’s wedding preparations, Gemma is shown walking her daughter down the aisle in the big episode now that their problems have been addressed.
Beth went on to say: “I believe Gemma liked Kyle right away when she met him. She can tell he’s a genuinely nice guy who sincerely cares about her daughter. She has no reservations about Roxy’s involvement with him at all.
“She didn’t think the wedding was a good idea because it was announced so abruptly and seemed to happen so rapidly.
“However, after meeting with Sheila, Gemma now wants Roxy to know that she supports her as a mother and that she would always be there for her. She changed her decision since she didn’t want to lose that connection. Sheila’s intervention, I believe, was the tipping point.”
“It’s just a few episodes,” she remarked, reflecting on her recent return. I have to say, it’s entertaining to come in and out. It’s always surprising to walk in and have scenes with different people without knowing what the tale is going to be about.
“I’m fine with popping in and out, but it’d be nice to have a little more time to devote to it.”
