The Platts may have been conspiring to keep Michael in the dark about Andy’s true identity – but the secret looks set to come spilling out in the coming weeks.
Michael – who is under the misapprehension that Andy is his son Gavin – is chuffed when ex-wife Susan sends him a photo album filled with family photos.
Michel is touched by Susan’s thoughtfulness, but as he coos over baby pictures of Gavin, Gail and Andy are filled with dread, certain that the game’s up. As he turns the pages, will Michael realise that he’s looking at pictures of a different man?
Speaking recently about the shock turn of events, actor Les Dennis – who plays Michael – said on ITV’s Loose Women:
“He seems a very nice, mild mannered man but the storyline which is coming up when he finds out that Gavin is not Gavin, he becomes less nerdy. He is the one that turns very angry!
“Imagine you find out that you met your real son but you didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. That Gail goes to his funeral and I don’t know anything about it. He becomes quite a different man.”
