CORONATION Street's Gary Windass will be questioned by police over Robert Preston's death.
The builder, played by actor Mikey North, is taken in by the cops following a fatal shooting on Christmas Day.
Two people will be gunned down in a bloodbath on the cobbles this festive season
Derek Milligan decides to get revenge on Gary after their business partnership soured.
He furiously wields a gun in the Rovers during a firefight on December 25 – and Michelle Connor’s loverat partner Robert, played by Tristan Gemmill, is fatally shot. Another resident is also wounded.
Later Gary is quizzed by police, but is relieved when he discovers him and Fiz both stuck to the story – that the only gun they’re aware of is the antique one in the shop.
But worried Tyrone warns Fiz that by lying to the police, she could make matters worse.
A soap source said: “Derek gets drunk and starts waving a gun around the pub.
"There’s a tense stand-off then a massive fight between the two men and two people are shot, including Robert, who dies on Christmas Day.
“He makes it to hospital but suffers a heart attack and dies off-screen in a bit of snub to Tristan. It’s left to Michelle to tell everyone he’s dead.”
Gary returned to Weatherfield to the shock news that Derek (Craige Els) had been romancing his ex Izzy Armstrong (Cherlylee Houston).
Derek, who opened up to her about his problems with booze, was horrified to learn that Gary is the father of Izzy’s son.
Meanwhile both Tristan and Kym Marsh, who plays his onscreen partner Michelle, are leaving the soap.
But Michelle isn’t being killed off, with producers leaving the door open for a potential return.
