EVIL builder Gary Windass will threaten Derek after discovering his plan to scam him out of the factory by selling it to Nick and Sarah in Coronation Street.
Gary - who is played by actor Mikey North in the ITV soap - shocked fans when he used his murder victim Rick Neelan’s money to scam Nick Tilsley and gain secret control of the factory.
Corrie viewers have watched in horror as Gary has taken on the role of loan shark after murdering villain Rick who was terrorising the cobbles.
The bad boy then found a safe of money belonging to his murder victim.
But instead of spending the money on himself, Gary has been rebuilding the Underworld with the money.
He’s sneakily been keeping his funds a secret by using his stooge Derek as a cover, claiming he’s a rich businessman who’s invested in the factory when he’s actually just one of Rick’s clients.
But after his stooge failed to abide by Gary’s rules, the menace threatened him and forced him to peg it out of the cobbles.
However, it seems we haven’t heard the last of Derek.
In upcoming scenes, Derek offers to delay the factory sale for Nick and Sarah until they raise the cash, and Nick and Sarah ask the factory workers to raise the £10k.
Derek explains to Izzy that he needs money to take his kids on a promised holiday to Florida or he’ll lose them forever.
Izzy approaches Gary for a loan to find her share of the 10k.
Gary puts two and two together and is seething when he realises that Derek’s trying to sell a building that actually belongs to him.
Later, a furious Gary corners Derek in the Rovers’ yard.
But feigning confidence, Derek points out his company’s names on the factory deeds so Gary can’t stop him selling.
Gary is quick to insist otherwise and tells Derek he'll regret crossing him.
Corrie fans will already know that a shock Christmas shooting is set to leave on Weatherfield resident dead on the ITV soap.
The shooting comes after drama escalates between Derek and Gary after the demise of their business partnership - but who will meet their death on the cobbles?
Fans will have to tune in to find out who meets their end.
