Coronation Street character Gary Windass is set to turn love rat when he cheats on partner Izzy Armstrong with a new face on the cobbles.

Gary (Mikey North) will meet Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) on a boozy night out with friends and end up in bed with her, according to the Daily Star.

But his one-night stand will become difficult to keep a secret when he realises that Alya is actually his new neighbour – she is gym owner Kal’s daughter and has come to live in Weatherfield.

A regretful Gary will beg Alya not to say anything to Izzy (Cherylee Houston), who he has a son with, but she threatens to let the secret out as she is angry at being lied to and feels Izzy deserves to know the truth.

Gary and Izzy’s son was carried by recently-murdered Tina McIntyre (Michelle Keegan), who was paid to be a surrogate for them.
