The ITV soap star spoke to Express.co.uk and other press about Gary’s realisation his murderous past is about to be exposed.
He said: ”This is where his world comes crashing down, essentially. He always thought he could manage to get his way around it.
“But that body is the one thing that could signal trouble and this is the worst-case scenario.”
The actor continued: “It’s all a bit of a ticking time bomb at the minute and I guess the next few months are going to be crucial for Gary’s life.
“It’s going to be exciting times and hopefully some good stuff for the viewers to watch.
“These scripts have been some of the best stuff I have read while I’ve been here. So hopefully, it’s all good.”
Coronation Street airs on ITV on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8pm.
