Last Friday, we saw Johnny Carter (Sam Strike) making plans to attend the Gay Pride celebrations with new friend Gianluca.
Now – in scenes to be shown in the coming weeks –a smitten Johnny will be seen introducing Gianluca to the rest of the Carters at Linda’s birthday party at the Queen Vic. And after some initial awkwardness, Linda (Kellie Bright) tries to be happy for her son. Definite progress there!
Johnny and Gianluca soon sneak upstairs, but it looks like their time together could well be cut short. Gianluca is preparing to return to Italy, but after a passionate kiss at the station, will Johnny be able to let him go?
