Far-fetched, isn't it? After all, she's not long out. But Coronation Street's Gail McIntyre (played by Helen Worth) is on very thin ice at the moment. She's clearly breached patient confidentiality and completely abused her position of trust as a doctor's receptionist by breaking into Natasha's medical files and then telling not only her son Nick but all and sundry about her termination.
The new GP will be all over this like a bad rash when he finds out, and Gail will have to end up losing her job. I'm not certain if what she's done is technically a police matter, but I've a feeling it probably is, and if it was up to me I'd definitely press criminal charges and lock her up.
Blogger Tvor reckons Gail has finally morphed into Ivy Tilsley. I'd say, with bells on! She's got a face that would curdle milk - not unlike one or two of the doctor's receptionists at the surgery I go to, come to think of it - and is turning into the over-possessive mother from hell. At the same time I really enjoy watching her - in fact, I love how awful she's becoming, and am wondering what on earth she's going to do next. Definitely a character I love to hate.
