Coronation Street star Mikey North has revealed that Gary Windass is to square up to old nemesis Pat Phelan in a new storyline.
The pair will clash after Gary has a one-night stand with Phelan’s daughter Nicola, who ends up pregnant as a result of the encounter.
“What we don’t know yet is whether she’s going to keep the baby,” said North. “That’s set to pit Gary against Phelan again, so there are going to be old battlegrounds revisited – there’s a lot of unfinished business there.”
During the pair’s last memorable showdown, Gary ended up believing he’d killed Pat after hitting him with a plank of wood. So could history end up repeating itself?
Speaking to Inside Soap, North commented: “If Phelan’s going to finally get his comeuppance, I want to be the one to do it!
“As long as I don’t have to lose my job because of it!”
