Shane "Spike" Pike was an old friend of Gemma Winter.
In October 2018, Spike met Gemma at Coronation Street in order for them to catch-up having not seen each other in three years. The pair were joined by Chesney Brown for a meal at the Viaduct Bistro. However, Chesney began to feel like a third wheel and invited Emma Brooker to join them. Chesney and Emma pretended to be a couple, with Chesney hoping that Gemma would become jealous as he was secretly hiding feelings for her. Gemma did become jealous, but Chesney didn't get the reaction he wanted as she took Spike back to 10a Coronation Street and slept with him - much to the frustration of Rita Sullivan when she bumped into a half-naked Spike the next morning.
Spike and Gemma continued their relationship for the next month until he was arrested for robbing a pizza parlor in November. Gemma originally believed that Spike was innocent and accused Chesney of falsely shipping him to the police. However, Spike admitted his guilt and the pair broke up.
