The road is running out for loan shark Gary Windass (played by Mikey North) and Coronation Street fans might have just spotted his next move. After last week’s dramatics where he was confronted by his ex Sarah Platt (Tina O-Brien) about killing Rick Neelan (Greg Wood), she came across a serial killer’s shopping list in the back of his van before he uttered the classic guilty phrase: “It’s not what it looks like.” Well Gary, ITV viewers think it might be.
Taking to Twitter after watching the builder chase a terrified Sarah down the street, they shared their views on what he might be planning.
And it’s a good job Sarah sprinted when she did, unless there’s more to come.
One predicted: “Gary is going to murder Sarah.”
“This is so weird, Gary’s talking like he had a choice of murdering two people – Sarah or Rick…” said another.
A third added: “Sarah has cornered you now Gary. You have nowhere to run try and get out of that one then mate. Check mate.”

In scenes that followed, Gary proceeded to save Sarah’s life by pushing her out of the way of an on-coming car when they ran into the road.
But despite all this, viewers believe he has it out for her now she knows everything.
Friday’s episode began where Wednesday left off, with Sarah desperately trying to revive a lifeless Gary in the middle of the road, while Tyrone Hobbs (Alan Halsall) called for an ambulance.
Conflicted about telling the truth about Gary after he confessed his undying love for her, the businesswoman lied to cover his back but how long will the charade go on for?
Does Gary really have a deadly plot for the love of his life?
In response to ‘What past Corrie villains would you bring back?’, one posted to a DS Forum: “Mine would be Tony Gordon.
“Would like a twist where he survived the factory explosion and has been on the run for over a decade, and went under a new identity.
“He started his life back up again, and decides to return to Coronation Street to settle things with Carla and Maria.”
They added: “Wouldn’t mind a ‘resurrection’ as we technically never saw him die on-screen, and the body brought out by police could be someone else (mistaken identity).”
Tony walked the cobbles from 2007 to 2010 and was first introduced as the owner of Gordon’s Catalogues, offering Carla Connor (Alison King) a contract for Underworld.
But during his short inhabitancy, he made quite the impression and left the ITV soap with an almighty bang. So we thought.
Others agreed with the original idea that the villain could have escaped the fire somehow and will return to wreak havoc on those who wronged him, but others weren’t so sure.
Disagreeing with the notion, one said: “No characters back from the dead, please. That always takes it into farcical territory. There was a reason those villains were killed.”
Maybe, but who knows… anything goes here!
Coronation Street continues tonight at 7.30am on ITV.
