Gary's guilt is proving too much for him after Laura's sacrifice in Coronation Street (ITV)

There’s another eventful night ahead for Weatherfield residents on Coronation Street tonight.

The episode of the soap, which airs on ITV from 8pm tonight, will see Abi Webster (Sally Carman) and Gary Windass (Mikey North) both struggling to cope with their own harrowing situations.

Gary was left shocked last week when dying Laura Neelan (Kel Allen, who put in a powerhouse performance) told police that she had killed ex-husband Rick (Greg Wood) despite the fact that Gary had just confessed to her himself.

Her motivation? Having Rick declared dead so that their daughter Kelly (Millie Gibson) would inherit his money. Knowing that Gary and his wife Maria (Samia Longchambon) truly care for Kelly and plan to look after her, Laura decided to take the blame - even when it led to Kelly disowning her.

Abi and Imran had a brief liaison last year (ITV)

Back to Corrie’s jittery killer now, and Gary can barely contain his shame — it only took him three years to show adequate remorse. In fairness, it was self-defence that caused his showdown with dodgy Rick to turn fatal.
