Gary Windass (played by Mikey North) is recovering in hospital after stepping out in front of a moving vehicle to save Sarah Platt’s life earlier this week on Coronation Street. After begging his ex-girlfriend to keep his murderous secret, will he realise his future lies with Sarah and not Maria on the ITV soap?
In recent scenes, Sarah discovered Gary murdered Rick Neelan (Greg Wood) and threatened to tell the police everything.
When confronted, Gary broke down and confessed he was to blame for Rick’s disappearance but explained he had done it to protect her.
While running away from Gary, Sarah failed to spot an oncoming vehicle but was pushed out of the way by the loan shark.
Despite Sarah threatening to expose him, Gary saved her life which could pose a huge problem for his upcoming wedding to Maria Connor (Samia Longchambon).

Is Gary still holding a torch for Sarah or is he ready to commit to his fiancée?
“He still loves her. I think he probably always will,” Mikey told Express.co.uk.
“I think everything that he did with Rick, and Rana [Habeeb] (Bhavna Limbachia) with all the roof stuff was to help [Sarah] out, to save her and to protect her.
“I guess he feels hard done by that he’s had to do all this and she’s off with someone else, he doesn’t like that.”
Mikey continued: “Don’t get me wrong he does love Maria, she’s been so nice to him and taken him in.
“He does love Maria, he really does want to marry her but this stuff with Sarah will always be bubbling underneath.”
“Obviously this brings it all to a head,” the Coronation Street actor added.
Sarah recently married Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) but their marriage will come under strain when the mum-of-two questions whether to report Gary.

Meanwhile, Maria begins to suspect Gary still has feelings for his ex-girlfriend.
The unlucky-in-love hairdresser will be determined to not let anything ruin her big day but she could be left heartbroken.
Will Gary jilt Maria at the altar when he realises Sarah is the only one for him?
Elsewhere on the cobbles, Ken Barlow (William Roache) could be set to reignite a romance with former flame Elaine Perkins (Joanna Lumley).
Speaking on BBC’s The One Show, the former soap star revealed she wanted to stay in Weatherfield for longer than she did.
Discussing her alter-ego’s exit from the cobbles, she said: “I said, ‘Oh don’t make me say these lines’, and I had to say, my character Elaine Perkins had to say, ‘No, I don’t want to stay here on the street, it’s so boring’.
“In my heart as an actress, I was thinking please keep me on for years – I would love to be a regular!
“But I was out after eight episodes. I was just a passing love interest.”
Could the pair reunite off-screen and return as a new couple?
Coronation Street continues Monday at 7:30pm on ITV.
