Actor Mikey North who plays Gary – has confirmed that his character will be going to war with both Ali and Adam in upcoming episodes.
He said: Gary is losing the plot a little bit. He is unstable and out of control so whatever he gets up to next, nothing would surprise me.
“It will be interesting to see whether or not Gary and Maria are with the wrong people.
Maybe Gary does want to be with Sarah and Maria does want to be with Ali, that may be the thing but time will tell.
“But Gary and Maria have got a lot of stuff to come, it will be interesting to see whether this is going to alienate Maria from the street as Gary is not the most popular person right now.
“He does mean well with Maria and he loves his kids, hes not all bad!
