Coronation Street drops another hint Gary Windass is soap’s new villain as he’s linked to factory roof collapse


CORONATION Street has hinted Gary Windass could be involved in the upcoming Underworld roof collapse.

The ITV soap is set for a shake-up as the factory will cave in – resulting in a major and heartbreaking death – in a shocking incident caused by a character turning to the dark side.

Spoilers for next week reveal Gary (played by Mikey North) is asked by Carla Connor (Alison King) to help with repair work needed on the Underworld.

While Gary agrees to give Carla a quote, it could be an early sign he’s set to be involved in the disaster and subsequent mystery about how caused the damage.

It will be sparked by a boat fire on the forecourt tonight which gets out of control, and it appears Mikey’s alter ego is in the frame as a suspect.

Although the incident seems like an accident at first, the next few weeks will show viewers that there it was more than meets the eye.

Late last year, Corrie boss Iain MacLeod confirmed the show’s plans but refused to give any details on who will be involved.

He said: “We’re knocking the factory down in March in a colossal big stunt.

“It will at first appear to be an accident, but will then be revealed to be a mystery and it’ll have been some kind of criminal enterprise that causes it all to fall down.

“Somebody will be dying in said collapse. I’m not going to tell you who that is or who pulls the factory roof down! It’s going to collapse.


“The roof will fall in. It plays out over four or five months.

“The resolution of a whodunit is so fundamental to the enjoyment of a viewer, so we want to keep that under wraps.”
