There's trouble looming for Gary Windass in Coronation Street as evil loan shark Rick Neeson tightens his grip...
Coronation Street has revealed that Gary Windass's world is about to be turned upside down when villain Rick Neeson ramps up his evil plan for the builder next week.
Coronation Street fans will know that Gary has got himself into trouble with Rick after taking out a dodgy loan to pay off his mounting debts.
The builder then took blackmail money from Peter Barlow to keep quiet about Carla's knowledge that the factory roof was dodgy prior to its collapse, hoping that the cash would be enough to pay off Rick.
But sadly for Gary, his debts are still growing and he has been forced to work for Rick as a way to pay them off.
This week will see Gary start work for Rick, with his first job being fleecing vulnerable old people into taking out dodgy high-interest loans.
Gary is sick to the core as he is forced to go door-to-door at an assisted living complex, but just when he thought that was bad, things are set to get even worse next week.
When Rick decides that Gary's next job is to become a debt collector, Gary is stunned to get to his first job and come face-to-face with someone familiar.
The official website for Coronation Street has revealed: "As Gary works has first debt collection he's horrified to recognise the client. It's Vicky!"
Soap fans will remember Vicky Jefferies as the mum of gang leader Tyler Jefferies. The same teenager who recently got AmyBarlow pregnant.
It seems Gary's day is about to take a sinister turn and things get violent over at Vicky's house. But will Gary step in and stop what is happening, or will be be forced to turn a blind eye?
While what happens is being kept under wraps, the Coronation Street website has hinted that Gary's troubles are far from over... "Later Rick calls to see Gary and tells him he still owes £11k! Is he in over his head?"
It also seems that Rick isn't the only one on Gary's case. He's also in trouble at home as his lies start to catch up with him.
Gary has been leaving the house in his builder's clothes, only to change into a suit and tie for his work with Rick. But it looks like his double life is about to be uncovered...
"Later, after having changed back into his builder's clothes, Gary returns home. But is Bethany about to rumble Gary after seeing him in a suit and tie?"
It looks like time is running out for Gary, will he manage to turn things around before he loses everything?
Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV.
