CORONATION Street’s Gary Windass smashed a metal detector into pieces to stop Brian and Bernie finding Rick’s body tonight – leaving fans in stitches.
Viewers know Gary killed Rick and buried him in the woods last year – but the pair came close to discovering his secret after having a “little root around” in Beacon Woods on the hunt for coins.
Petrified they’d stumble upon Rick’s body, desperate Gary set upon the unsuspecting pair and chased them away – before following them back to the Cobbles in his van.
Baffled Brian says to Bernie: “Is he still following us? I can’t quite believe that I feel like I’ve been in a car chase. Me, in a car chase! Look at me, I’m shaking like a leaf.”
And Bernie rages: “He was totally out of order talking to us like that. Foraging is a civil liberty, finders keepers, he don’t make up the rules!”
“All I wanted was to maybe discover some small, historical nick nacks,” Brian replies.
Gary soon turns up and Bernie screams: “Oi, when did you start working for the Woodland Trust … you don’t have any right to tell us what to do!”
“I reckon there’s loads more stuff to find up there.”
But Gary grabs the metal detector from Brian and destroys it in a fit of rage – just as Sarah walks out to watch.
Bernie tells Sarah: “We was having a lovely little root around in the woods, he comes over starts ranting and raving and chases us off!”
Gary soon calms down and says he’ll pay for another metal detector, leaving Brian baffled by his outburst.
Despite the consequences for Gary, viewers found the scenes with Brian and Bernie hilarious.
One fan tweeted: “Gary Windass is officially losing the plot. #Corrie #CoronationStreet”
Another viewer typed: “Oh dear ! Gary’s such a Pratt! #Corrie”
And one more said: “Corrie hahahaha Gary hahahahaha look at the state of him”
Next week, it all kicks off when Brian reveals to Gary that Bernie found a watch in the woods and sold it to Sarah.
This social distancing #coronationstreet is to funny and very unbelievable 🤣
What’s Bernie up to?! 🤔😂 #Corrie #CoronationStreet
If only Bernie had realised when she was unearthing Rick’s corpse that people pay perfectly good money for skeletons as well as watches! She’ll be kicking herself when she realises! @itvcorrie #corrie #coronationstreet pic.twitter.com/5QuYSJYkBa
