Affairs of the heart take a dark twist this autumn as Gary Windass (Mikey North) makes his presence felt, overshadowing more than one relationship.
There are tumultuous times ahead for both Adam (Sam Robertson) & Sarah (Tina 0’Brien) and Ali (James Burrows) & Maria (Samia Longchambon) as Gary threatens to destroy both relationships, taking Adam and Ali down in the process
After losing Sarah to Adam, Gary is determined to take his revenge, and when Adam starts prying into Gary’s dodgy dealings Gary decides it’s time he took him down a peg or two.
Gary may still have feelings for Sarah, and be burdened by guilt, but she crossed him and left him with nothing.
The former squaddie’s life has taken a turn since then but a scorned Gary makes a very dangerous enemy and Adam needs to watch his back.
Gary is losing the plot a little bit. He is unstable and out of control...
– Mikey North
Revenge isn’t the only thing on Gary’s mind, he’s looking for love again and when he sets his sights on Maria it soon becomes clear he’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants.
Maria and Ali’s relationship hasn’t been plain sailing and spotting signs of weakness Gary steps in and makes his move.
Unaware of Gary’s darker side Maria’s flattered by the attention, seeing Gary only as a businessman and a great father to Jake.
Like Adam, Ali has his suspicions about Gary’s sudden turn of fortune but will he be able to warn Maria before she steps into the lion’s den and does a deal with the devil?
Mikey North said: “Gary is losing the plot a little bit. He is unstable and out of control so whatever he gets up to next, nothing would surprise me. It will be interesting to see whether or not Gary and Maria are with the wrong people. Maybe Gary does want to be with Sarah and Maria does want to be with Ali, that may be the thing but time will tell. But Gary and Maria have got a lot of stuff to come, it will be interesting to see whether this is going to alienate Maria from the street as Gary is not the most popular person right now. He does mean well with Maria and he loves his kids, he’s not all bad!”
