Coronation Street's Gary Windass to have affair with newcomer
'Coronation Street's Gary Windass is set to cheat on his girlfriend Izzy Armstrong after he falls into bed with newcomer Alya Nazir later this month
'Coronation Street's Gary Windass is to have an affair with newcomer Alya Nazir.
The builder - played by Mikey North - is set to cheat on his girlfriend Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) after he finds himself in bed with the beautiful receptionist (Sair Khan) following a boozy night out.
However, the flame-haired hunk's world will come crashing down when he discovers his one night stand actually lives on the cobbles and is the daughter of gym instructor Kal Nazir (Jimi Mistry).
Gary begs Alya to keep his dirty little secret under wraps, but she threatens to expose his naughty antics to wheelchair-bound Izzy, who is also the mother of his infant son Jake.
In scenes to be screened later this month, Gary pleads: "Please don't tell anyone about last night. I messed up. She's not my wife, but I have never cheated on her before. I really regret it."
However, feisty Alya leaves Gary fearing the future of his relationship after she snaps back: "The mother of your child? Who is lovely, by the way. Why didn't you tell me about her last night? Slipped your mind, did it? You wanted to get me into bed. Mentioning her and your child might have spoiled your plans.
"You really know how to make a girl feel special. Izzy deserves to know about the sleaze-ball she's going out with."
Meanwhile, newcomer Sair's sexy storyline meant she was forced to lock lips with Mikey on the second day of filming on the ITV soap, but she insists her co-star made her feel totally at ease.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: "It was really surreal, such an odd experience. But Mikey was great and helped me out."
