Soap fans are in for a treat next week as Coronation Street airs a week of special action-packed episodes to run along side the Britain’s Got Talent live finals – and Gary is about to find himself at the centre of the drama.
As Leanne, Sarah and Toyah pay evil loan shark Rick a visit this week, they think they’re cleverly getting closer to working out how Nick Tilsley managed to get the cash to pay for the barbers.
But what they don’t realise is that when they break onto Rick’s office, they have just inadvertently signed Gary’s death warrant by riling up the dodgy villain.
Next week Gary is shocked to find his passport in an envelope, and even more surprised when Leanne reveals that she was the one who broke in and stole it from Rick’s office.
Gary feels sick, knowing from first hand experience that getting on the wrong side of Rick is definitely not a good idea.
But it seems his prayers are answered when Audrey Roberts calls him and invites him on a holiday with the Platts, and Gary quickly agrees, thinking that getting out of Weatherfield is the best thing he could do.
Meanwhile Rick is convinced that Gary sent Sarah to his office to do his dirty work and decides to teach the builder a lesson.
Before he can even get to the family holiday, Gary is stunned to wake up tied to a radiator in Rick’s office.
He knows he’s in deep trouble when Rick accuses him of getting Sarah to break into his office and steal money and passports, and it doesn’t matter how much Gary denies it, Rick just isn’t listening.
Making it clear that Gary has overstepped the mark one too many times, Rick announces this is the end of the line for Gary and that his days are numbered.
Telling sidekick Sharon to leave, Rick prepares himself to kill Gary.
But when he is called to sort out a client at the last minute, Gary manages to leave a message on Sarah’s phone, telling her that Rick has kidnapped him and that she is in danger, too.
Oblivious Sarah has no idea that Gary is in trouble, having just assumed that he decided at the last minute not to come on holiday.
But before she can save Gary, Rick comes back and prepares to finish him off for good.
Is this the end for the dodgy builder? Or will be be rescued at the last minute?
From Monday May 27 to Friday May 31 Coronation Street will air at 9pm, between the Britain’s Got Talent live finals at 7.30pm and the results show at 9.30pm.
