The daughter of Eddie and Elsie Seddon, 'wild child' Gina stayed at the family home after Eddie's dictatorial running of the household had driven Sally away but she argued with him a lot - according to Gina, she was the only one who would stand up to him. In March 1988, Gina had an argument with Eddie about her boyfriend Billy Wyatt, who Eddie called a yobbo as he'd been in prison. Gina called Eddie rotten names and walked out of the house. As she had a good relationship with Sally, she turned up at No.13 asking for a bed for the night. Neither Sally nor Kevin were happy to see her - she was the proverbial bad penny and they were worried that she'd never leave - but they felt trapped into letting her stay as the alternative would be her going off with Billy.
Gina and Billy didn't have jobs but through Gina Billy got a job at Tilsley's Garage, where Kevin worked. While he was at work bored Gina turned her attentions towards Martin Platt; they arranged to spend the day together at the Websters' while no one else was in but Billy called and found them together. He and Martin had a fight and made a mess. When Kevin found out, he decided Gina had outstayed her welcome and demanded that she leave. Gina returned home.
In September, Gina returned to the Websters' asking to stay as Billy was in prison; he'd been charged with stealing a car and Gina was being charged as an accessory - although she didn't tell Kevin and Sally that until later. Gina planned to deny knowing the car was stolen but Kevin persuaded her to tell the truth as she'd get a lesser sentence. At the Magistrate's Court, Gina received a £100 fine and was put on probation. Kevin and Sally agreed to let her stay at No.13 if she got a job. Gina wanted to be an air hostess but as she couldn't apply until the following January she applied for a job at Jim's Cafe, helping out Gail Tilsley on a new sandwich round. Gail took her on and she settled in despite interference from Phyllis Pearce, who thought Gail was trying to replace her with someone younger and gave her a hard time, and the fact that she had to learn how to ride a bike in order to do the job at all. The perennially work-shy Gina's determination and attitude to the job changed when she realised she could use the round to meet boys.
Following the death of her father in January 1989 Gina received £1,000 from the insurance payout and, quitting the cafe without working her notice, she left the Street for the second time, without saying goodbye to Kevin and Sally. She later married a long-distance lorry driver, Colin, and they moved to Newcastle. In 2001 Gina was hospitalised with appendicitis and Sally went to look after her two children. In 2010 Sally went to stay with Gina in order to convalesce after receiving treatment for breast cancer, returning home a few months later.
