GARY Windass’ money woes are far greater than he has let on as it’s revealed he’s borrowed a load of cash from nasty loan shark Rick Neelan.
The builder, played by Mikey North, finds himself in trouble as he struggles to pay off the debt in upcoming scenes.
Yesterday viewers watched as Gary accepted £10k from Peter in order to keep his mouth shut about the factor roof.
Troubled Gary is hoping it will be enough to pay off Rick (Greg Wood), but the violent loan shark has got other ideas.
Earlier this year it was revealed that Rick was returning to the Cobbles.
In upcoming scenes, Gary starts acting as a loan shark by carrying out Rick’s dirty work.
Troubled with ongoing cash issues, Gary’s relationship with Sarah Platt is really put to the test.
Could Gary be corrupted to the point of no return and become Corrie’s newest villain alongside the manipulating bad boy?
Loan shark Rick Neelan is thought to be returning to the soap for a few months, meaning there’s plenty of time to cause enough grief.
According to Digital Spy, the troublemaker will be “up to his old tricks by terrorising some of the local residents”.
