Holly Gatley is the wife of Christian Gatley, the mother of Maisie and Sam and the daughter-in-law of Hayley Cropper.

When Christian briefly reunited with Hayley in September 2013, he revealed that he was married to Holly and they had two children. Having found out that Hayley was suffering from terminal cancer, he brought the children to visit in December, on the understanding that Hayley would give him £5,000 in order to clear his debts.

According to Christian, the couple had celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in November 2013.
