Coronation Street's Mikey North: 'Gary will always have feelings for Sarah'

Coronation Street's Mikey North: 'Gary will always have feelings for Sarah'

Coronation Street star Mikey North discusses his character Gary's relationships with Maria and Sarah.

Coronation Street star Mikey North has admitted that "there will always be something lingering" between his character Gary and his ex Sarah (Tina O'Brien).

In scenes earlier this month, a tipsy Sarah made a pass at Gary, unaware that his wife Maria (Samia Longchambon) had set up a secret camera nearby.

Gary successfully intervened and deleted the footage, but in next week's episodes, Maria catches them on camera looking close and starts to grow suspicious.

"I've always said the way that Gary and Sarah's relationship came to an end years ago was a real shame," said North, who has now been on the cobbles for 15 and a half years.

"They were really happy with each other and had been through a lot. They were a really good couple and from a personal point of view, it was a really happy time at work. I thoroughly enjoyed those years working with the Platts and got really nice storylines out of it.

"I guess there will always be something lingering due to what they went through. They both know each of their deepest, darkest secrets and are probably the only people that know them. I think they will always have that feeling for each other deep down no matter what happens."

Despite Gary's closeness to Sarah, North thinks that he remains happy in his current relationship with Maria - especially after all of the recent heartache they have been through with Liam (Charlie Wrenshall).

"I do think he is happy with Maria," he continued. "They have been through a lot and the family unit has been formed, especially with Jake there as well. I think he's got the family unit that he's always wanted.

"Obviously when something as big as this happens, it just throws that spanner in the works. At this moment, I don't think anyone could be truly happy with everything that's going on, so it really has thrown their relationship and it will be interesting to see how they can come through this, or not..."

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
