Gary Windass’s life will be in serious danger in Coronation Street next week as evil loan shark, Rick Neeson, swears to kill him.
As the week kicks off, Gary is stunned to find his passport in an envelope and even more shocked when Leanne Battersby tells him that she, Toyah and Sarah Platt broke into Rick’s office to get it.
Gary is horrified as he knows the fallout will not be good.
When Audrey Roberts – who’s played by Sue Nicholls – calls him and invites him to join the Platt family on their holiday, a terrified Gary is only too pleased to be able to get away.
He doesn’t make it on the holiday though and later wakes up to find himself in Rick’s office, tied to a radiator.
A furious Rick – Greg Wood – accuses Gary of getting Sarah to do his dirty work for him, by breaking into his office and stealing the stash of passports he’d taken from his loan victims.
Gary denies having anything to do with it, but Rick doesn’t believe him. Eventually Gary ends up sacrificing himself to protect Sarah.
Meanwhile, at the holiday lodge, Sarah assumes Gary has decided not to join them on their break after all completely oblivious to the consequences of her actions.
Rick then makes it clear that he’s going to kill Gary, telling his associate Sharon to leave.
But Rick is called away to deal with a client and Gary takes the opportunity to leave a message on Sarah’s phone telling her that Rick is going to murder him.
When Rick gets back, he unties Gary and prepares to kill him. Will Gary get out alive?
Gary actor Mikey North revealed last month that his character could be killed off in a vicious revenge attack.
Speaking to The Sun Online’s Soap Bubble, he admitted: “I've always said, the amount of Platt’s boyfriends and husbands that have died, it's probably got to be me next, but I've had a good run!”
Mikey, 32, believes Rick is just as dangerous as serial killer Pat Phelan, but is more likeable.
“I quite like the character Rick, the way he's written, it’s almost like the likeable scary bad guy,” Mikey told us.
“He's got some pretty decent one liners whereas Pat was pretty much bad through and through, so I think there's a bit more to like about Rick, but I wouldn't mess with him.”
