Gary Windass’ (Mikey North) days on the cobbles could be numbered in Coronation Street, as he finds himself the victim of a devastating accident — moments after making a shock admission to Sarah Platt (Tina O’Brien).
Gary has quite literally got away with murder, and he’s managed to keep his secrets hidden rather well thus far.
Actor Mikey North — who plays the antique’s dealer — told Metro.co.uk: ‘think Gary has been really confident, Mikey less so!
‘I think he’s felt invincible at times and his split personality comes out and he thinks that nothing can get to him really. But now things are going to catch up with him and his luck might be running out.’
Yes, his luck might just indeed running out, as upcoming scenes will see Rick Neelan’s (Greg Wood) engraved watch found in the woods, and — with her suspicions piqued — Sarah demands answers regarding the loan shark’s disappearance.
Speaking about the scenes in question, Mikey said: ‘She is starting to put things together and Adam has obviously been after him for a while as well and the net is closing in.
‘Sarah will then approach Gary and ask him straight, did he do it? Gary is going to go back to the body, he is losing it a little bit and is going to go back and try to dig it up.
‘Sarah then just opens the van up and spots his murder kit in the back, spade and all of that, and she’s shocked, doesn’t know what to do and asks him, did he do it?’
With Sarah asking questions, Gary’s web of lies soon unravel, and the young woman is left terrified by a few admissions.
Mikey revealed: ‘Gary may regret a few things that he tells her in that scene!’
A terrified Sarah subsequently runs off, but a car comes hurtling towards her, and therefore Gary dives into the path of danger in an effort to save her life.
He successfully knocks her out of the way, but he’s ultimately hit by the oncoming vehicle.
This particular scene is a pretty history-making one, as it’s the world’s first socially-distanced stunt — and Mikey was pleased to take part in it.
‘It’s always nice to get involved and do that and I always asked to do my own stuff if I can. I enjoy, it, it is one of the best parts of the job for me.
‘Luckily they let me do it. I was on the bonnet of the car and yeah it was good fun. I enjoy getting bashed about!’
Coronation Street continues Monday 20 July at 7:30pm on ITV.
