CORONATION Street’s Gary Windass sets out to wreak havoc on the Cobbles as he tries to destroy Sarah Platt and Adam Barlow’s relationship AND steal Maria Connor from Ali Neeson.
Affairs of the heart take a dark twist this autumn as Gary – played by Mikey North – make his presence felt, overshadowing more than one relationship.
There are tumultuous times ahead for both Adam (Sam Robertson) and Sarah (Tina 0Brien) and Ali (James Burrows) and Maria (Samia Longchambon) as Gary threatens to destroy both relationships, taking Adam and Ali down in the process.
After losing Sarah to Adam earlier this year, Gary is determined to take his revenge, and when Adam starts prying into Garys dodgy dealings Gary decides its time he took him down a peg or two.
Gary may still have feelings for Sarah, and be burdened by guilt after causing the factory roof collapse and the death of Rana Habeeb, but she crossed him and left him with nothing.
The former squaddies life has taken a turn since then, but a scorned Gary makes a very dangerous enemy and Adam needs to watch his back.
Revenge isnt the only thing on Garys mind, hes looking for love again and when he sets his sights on Maria it soon becomes clear he will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
Maria and Alis relationship hasnt been plain sailing, and spotting signs of weakness, Gary steps in and makes his move.
Unaware of Garys darker side Marias flattered by the attention, seeing Gary only as a businessman and a great father to his son Jake.
Like Adam, Ali has his suspicions about Garys sudden turn of fortune but will he be able to warn Maria before she steps into the lions den and does a deal with the devil?
Speaking about his latest storyline, Gary said: Gary is losing the plot a little bit. He is unstable and out of control so whatever he gets up to next, nothing would surprise me.
“It will be interesting to see whether or not Gary and Maria are with the wrong people.
“Maybe Gary does want to be with Sarah and Maria does want to be with Ali, that may be the thing but time will tell.
“But Gary and Maria have got a lot of stuff to come, it will be interesting to see whether this is going to alienate Maria from the street as Gary is not the most popular person right now.
“He does mean well with Maria and he loves his kids, hes not all bad!
