Gary Windasss (Mikey North) problems keep on coming in Coronation Street and audience members have been left wondering who he is going to target next after being responsible for the factory roof collapse, killing Rana, and also murdering evil loan shark Rick Neelan (Greg Wood).
More recently, Ryan Connor (Ryan Prescott) has gotten on the wrong side of him as he stole some of Garys money and is now debt to him.
Soon Gary will be seeing red once again as new investor of the factory Derek Milligan targets Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston).
In the Rovers, theres a spark between Izzy and Derek. With Gary away, Nick (Ben Price) forces a reluctant Derek to sign the rental agreement for the factory.
Derek is horrified to learn that Gary is the father of Izzys son and, whilst Izzy returns to work, Derek knocks back a drink. Izzy is curious when Derek asks to meet her later for a talk.
Derek confesses to Izzy that he has a terrible drink problem and when Izzy offers to support Derek in his battle against the booze, he asks her on a date.
Back from visiting Nicola (Nicola Thorp) and Zack, Garys seething to learn from Nick that Derek has been signing contracts granting rent reductions in his absence.
Gary is also gobsmacked to spot Derek and Izzy heading to Speed Daal on a date.
