He had a final talk with ex Maria Connor who told him: "I'm sorry how things ended with us Ali but I am glad there was a me and you.

"We had some good times. There won't be another me and you but there will be a you and somebody else someday so good luck Ali."

He said: "I appreciate you gathering all the troops for a goodbye but I don’t want a fuss. You know there’s some things I wish I’d done differently but I’m still alive, aren’t I? I should go.

He added: "You are the best brother I could ever wish for."

But as he drove off Ali spotted Gary with Sharon in the street’s back alley and had his phone out ready to take a picture.
