Coronation Street's Tommy Duckworth is "very angry" to realise Gary Windass is falling for Tina McIntyre - but is left looking like a "prat" when they have a row
Coronation Street's Tommy Duckworth is "very angry" to realise Gary Windass is falling for Tina McIntyre.
The Weatherfield mechanic is left looking like a "right prat" after a row with the ex-soldier (Mikey North) because his former girlfriend - who is acting as a surrogate for Gary and his partner Izzy Armstrong - doesn't realise what the problem is.
Sparks fly when Gary manages to track down a ring stolen from Tina's house at a pawn shop, and Tommy has his suspicions confirmed.
Chris Fountain, who plays Tommy, said: "Tommy is very angry. One of the reasons Tina agreed to have this baby is that Izzy and Gary were such a tight couple and really wanted a child together. But the way Gary behaves around Tina sets alarm bells ringing.
"Obviously Tommy has got a bit of a tempter, but when Gary turns up with the ring as a grand gesture and makes Tommy look bad, he cuts loose.
"Tommy tells Gary he knows exactly what's happening then walks out. Because Tina can't see that Gary fancies her, it makes Tommy look a right prat."
Despite the row, Chris is hopefully Tommy and Tina (Michelle Keegan) will be able to put aside their differences and get back together.
He told Inside Soap magazine: "It would be really nice if they got back together. The two of them have been through so much, and Tommy is quite bitter about it all.
"Deep down, he knows Tina is doing this for him and that a lot of it is his fault.
"Tommy is so lost without Tina - she's always been the one for him."
