Well done to Gary for nabbing that vicious little hooligan at girlfriend, Maria’s, political event, which was held at Speed Daal. He’s quite the hero now!


Sandy Cowell said on 16/Nov/22
The looks on Gary’s and Maria’s faces when the young boy explains what he went through to find a safe haven reflects what all the viewers are thinking. Then the kid gets jumped upon and beaten up by thug Griff and his disgraceful mates.

I’m glad there’s always a helpline at the end of the programme. Behaviour like this is unforgivable.
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Sep/22
I don’t think little Kelly gives two stinks about anything anymore. What happened tonight proved it. 😌

Gary showed himself to be a real MAN.

Kelly - move on, love! Your father wasn’t a nice man.

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Mar/22
That was a brave move on Mikey’s Gary’s part, willing to confess to murder so that young Kelly could get her father’s money, but an even braver step for Kelly’s mother to confess to a crime she didn’t commit because she overheard Kelly praising Gary and Maria to the skies and she knows her young daughter will always be looked after with that couple. Alas, she’s dying; what a brave woman she is, and prepared to tarnish her reputation because she loves her daughter, 16, so much. πŸ₯²

Mikey North gets 5ft7.5, but gives a taller impression because he, as in character Gary, is loaded with confidence. So he should be after the sacrifice he was willing to make. How touching, in the case of both characters. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

Soap Info:

Impressive to see Gary trying to help young Kelly, posting Β£7K through the letterbox of her solicitor, Imran. I didn't pick up on that during last week's showing but I did suspect it might be him.

He has a conscience after what happened between Kelly's father and him. The father, a dangerous piece of work, had already dug a grave for Gary, but ended up in there himself.

Mikey looks a bit too tall to be 5ft7.25, so I will go with 5ft7.5 again. 5ft10 is just ridiculous!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Jan/21
It takes a real man to do what Mikey's 'Coronation Street' character, Gary Windass, has done for his little stepsister, going to prison to save her skin. He's also been a tower of strength to MS sufferer Johnny Connor, who's only doing time because he owned up to a crime he was coerced into many years back, defending Johnny when the other prisoners were about to pick on him.

One brave guy Mikey plays. That stint in the Army years ago made a man out of Gary to be sure.

Hey Rob would the socially distanced Camera angles give guys a chance to appear shorter or taller? In a recent argument with Adam barlow i think Mikey could seem over 5’8! Could the social distancing make it trickier to estimate height differences?
Editor Rob
sometimes being a bit further away can reduce differences. As can of course lens/camera angle/height of camera.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Dec/20
Well done to Mikey's Gary for rescuing his little stepsister from the grasping, dangerous Ray!

Mikey North's Gary πŸ’¨ass can look the new Todd (Gareth Pierce) straight in the face, so I'm beginning to think Gareth could be nearer 5ft8 than Bruno Langley, the former Todd's 5ft8.75.

Mikey gets 5ft7.25. πŸ˜πŸ‘

He wears quite high boots. I recone hes about 5ft 5in.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Oct/20
The hoodlum who's after Todd and Eileen mysteriously hits the ground, and who's standing there with a baseball bat? Mikey North's Gary! πŸ˜†

Well it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy! It's a shame they didn't have time to bundle him into the back of a lorry and drive him to the middle of nowhere, meanwhile informing the Police.

This is one bad egg who wants revenge, and he won't back down, not even when Gary joins in. 😝

Andy5'93/4 said on 4/Oct/20
Hey rob any chance he measures 5’8 flat?
Editor Rob
Highest I'd ever give him would be that mark, just can't see how he ended up with a 5ft 10.
Jonny Clewett said on 21/Aug/20
Just seen celebrity chase Mikey was like the same as 5 ft 8 1/2 Bradley Walsh so he is 5 ft 8 for me πŸ‘
TheBat said on 7/Aug/20
Lol the fact he listed himself at 5'10" is hilariously way off.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 5/Aug/20
Now that was a brave act of Mikey's, pushing Sarah out of the way and getting knocked over by a car instead. If I remember rightly, that loan shark had dug him a grave, so it was kill or be killed. The shark 🦈 WAS threatening his loved ones too, including Sarah and her kids.

Yup, Mikey's Gary has made his way back into my good books....πŸ‘Œ

5ft7.25 πŸ˜πŸ‘
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Mar/20
What a bitter piece of work Mikey's Gary Windyass is! To have the man she slept with, who is a doctor, drugged and insodoing ruining the man's career and losing a lady who stuck by him her job, is about as low as it goes. πŸ‘…

Feeble-minded, scheming Gary, played by Mikey North, gets 5ft7.25. I hope we see him in a nice celebrity quiz playing for charity soon. He needs to get himself back into the public's good books....! 😬
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Feb/20
But the nice Gary didn't stick around for long!

He took it upon himself to belt Daniel in the chops because his failure to get his baby immunised resulted in the death of his unborn baby. Some might think he was entitled to do that, but I doubt the bereaved Daniel was thinking straight at the time. So sad.

Mikey gets 5ft7.25.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Jan/20
We actually copped a glimpse of the nice Gary in last night's episode. A guy came begging him for another loan otherwise his Mum would be booted out of her care home, of Β£600. Gary, whose confessed the lot (minus the defense killing) to Maria who is expecting his child, gave the desperate man an expensive clock to raise the funds. This was witnessed by Maria, who, unbeknownst to Gary, was watching.

There's hope for him yet. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ””

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Dec/19
Who the blazes does Windarse think he is? He's driving people off their rockers! He said the other night to some poor guy something about DISRESPECTING him! I disrespect him! Wotcha gonna do about it? Wotcha gonna do? 🎢🎼🎢🎡

I can't disrespect his acting though!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Dec/19
If Mikey's 5ft10, then Rob wakes up a bonnie, bouncing six-footer! πŸ‘…

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 7/Nov/19
Mikey's Gary Windarse is turning into a jealous, dangerous creep. I really don't like him anymore.

Jonny Clewett said on 4/Nov/19
I would him 5 ft 8, he looks a typical 5'8 kind of guy
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 28/Sep/19
@ Nik - Things really are getting worse for him, and others are getting hurt. He really should be seeking help and if he doesn't get it, who knows who will be hurt next? There's gossip that Adam Barlow could be bumped off by him, but it's all a story, and just as well!

In real life, he's a caring Dad with a lovely wife and she's expecting another baby. I don't want him written out - he's been getting better and better over the years, and I don't want his character to end up behind' bars, but he's already committed crime after crime since the self-defence killing. So it's only a matter of time before his reign of terror comes to an end. Silly boy! He'll probably get caught and have time to share with his wife when the new baby comes along, and what could be better than that?

Cheers Nik and the same to your Mum. Have a great weekend, the two of you!

πŸŽ‰πŸŽπŸŽ‚ Happy Birthday Mikey! πŸŽ‚πŸŽπŸŽ‰

Today Mikey turns 33 years of age. Have a great day with family and friends!

Nik Ashton said on 27/Sep/19
@ Sandy Cowell - That’s what I think, Mikey is a smashing guy in real life. The scriptwriters decide on the storylines and they have obviously decided to make it so that Gary has gone off the rails, my Mum cannot believe what Gary has become, he was a decent guy on β€œCorrie” until recently. Things appear to be getting worse and worse for him.

He would have been better off being punished by the law for what
he did, he will be causing more trouble for himself and other people by doing what he is doing so it is not worth it. He could also be caught by the police or murdered by someone so he would have been better off handing himself in, he would then have been able to wipe the slate clean after his punishment.

There is no way that Mikey is 5’9”, he is probably about 5’7.25” like me and I agree that first thing in a morning he is likely to be about 5’7.75”, that is exactly what I am when I am fresh out of my pit!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 26/Sep/19
5ft9 Nik? NEVER! Not even when he gets up.

What on Earth is happening to Windass? He's turned into the bloke he abhorred and killed - otherwise he'd have been killed himself.πŸ‘Ή If he'd come clean with the Police, they'd surely have been lenient on him under the circumstances and he'd have been able to wipe the slate clean and move on with his life. Instead, he's pinched the crook's money and started up his own Shylock-style extortion business. He's turned into everything he hated. The beating he gave to that young guy on Monday was sheer cowardice, and now the frightened lad has forewarned him that his ex-girlfriend's solicitor boyfriend has the private detectives onto him.

Episode 2 is about to start now and I missed it last night!

5ft7.25, but I can believe 5ft7.75 first thing in the morning. πŸ“

Just as well that Mikey North is a smashing guy in real life! πŸ˜πŸ‘
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 11/Aug/19
Ooh, he is becoming snide and calculating in 'Coronation Street'! Gary, Mikey's character, is acting as though he's newly infallible! He's already got away with murder, but now he's following in the footsteps of the rotter he killed in self-defense, and ripping off the same vulnerable people that the creep he killed did.

At just over 5ft7, perhaps 5ft7.5 tops, he's on the shorter side of average. He doesn't look SHORT short, and walks about confidently, which does add to the illusion of being quite tall. I've only just noticed that he wears his red hair in a hairstyle which actually adds to his height. Yes, he's been a bit too cocky for his own good lately, and shouldn't be drawing attention to himself in the way he's been doing.

Perhaps it's a reflection on how he is in real life! I mean, who could believe he's 5ft10? Only when he walks about on his own could he pass for, say, around 5ft8/8.5 but as soon as you see him with someone you know the height of, you realize that he simply isn't! He makes up for any lack of height with his new lease of confidence - and fattened wallet! πŸ‘›πŸ’·πŸ’·πŸ’·πŸ€‘

Today Mikey gets 5ft7.5.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Jul/19
Congratulations to Mikey and wife Rachael! They are expecting their second child, a daughter, and their son, 2, has already named her....πŸ‘Ά

I saw a couple of last week's episodes on my phone yesterday, and Mikey was central character.

CD said on 21/Jul/19
Recently I noticed in Corrie he looked solidly taller than Chris Gascoyne (Peter), although they are listed a mere quarter inch apart. Whether this was down to footwear or camera angle I don’t know, but perhaps Mikey is more along the lines of 5’7.5” and Chris a weaker 5’7”?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/19
This is getting even worse! The guy Gary killed has a little daughter.

How could he have extorted money out of fellow parents, and threatened their offspring?

I don't think that Gary can take much more. πŸ˜ͺ
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jun/19
While round that evil userer's 'office', a man comes round with an envelop full of money. "You can tell him to leave my son alone now!" he tells Gary.

What a piece of scum! He made a bloody living by extorting money from desperate people with families. I think Gary did A Good Thing - after all, that grave that the Shylock had dug was meant for him.

However, Gary still killed a man and is at his vulnerable lowest, especially as his girlfriend has gone off with another guy. I can't see him coping very well now, but he's proved one thing: that the Army makes a man out of you, regardless of your size!

Good luck Gary!

Miss Sandy Cowell said on 23/Jun/19
Blimey, I feared for Mikey's character Gary Windass this week! That dreadful, violent userer was not only after him, he had met him in the woods - and has dug out a grave for him. There is a fight, and it's a matter of kill or be killed.

The shorter of the two, Gary, is the triumphant one. His Army training has clearly paid off.

I don't know what I'd do in his position. Even if he'd taken a picture of his attacker's freshly dug grave, and then told the Police after the attack, they'd have probably said, "Why didn't you ring us?"

It was a case of an unexpected attack though. Gary would have had to video the digging of the grave as proof. Then the Police would STILL have told him to ring them.

I don't think I'd be able to live with myself after that though and I would go to the Police, hoping they'd use lie detector facilities to see if I was telling the truth.

Poor Gary!

5ft7.5. πŸ’ͺ😁🀞
Dannie said on 1/May/19
Funny I always thought he was like 6’2. But that’s because he is always with small women. But when you see him by himself he looks like 5’7. Him and Jack P Shepard both often wear big shoes probably to make them seem taller as jack is only like 5’5.
berta said on 29/Apr/19
not many guys that claims this mutch taller than his height. ( of course he could be 173 max , you never know but still) i think the listing is good
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Apr/19
❇️ Correction Time! ❇️

That should have read: What a loveLY guy Mikey plays.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 14/Apr/19
Mikey's Gary Windass has been so dependable and brave this week, endangering his own life and those of his loved ones - little did he know - by going against that evil piece of work who wants his to extort money, Shylock-style, from the elderly and the vulnerable. He even gave an old lady money out of his own pocket to finance medical care for one of her grandchildren.

What a love guy Mikey plays - all 5ft7.25 of him!

I think it's possible that he could be slightly taller, but he is taller for a guy than his Soap partner is for a girl! She, Sarah Platt, only just tops 5ft. Mikey is taller than her whole family, except for her brother Nick, played by Ben Price, who has to be around the 5ft11 mark.
Nik said on 28/Apr/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Too true!

His experiences in the army and going through PTSD have really made him very strong and determined, he is very dependable, like you say, and draws on his own life experience to help any person who he can possibly help. He is a very good sort who is capable of going from strength to strength in life, he makes mistakes but he is a very valuable member of society. I hope he sorts that maniac out!
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Apr/18
@ Nik - Yes, he has become a very dependable young man! He has been through PTSD and come out stronger, and now he is doing his best to help others and stand up for what is right. A thoroughly good sort, who draws on his own experiences to rescue those who need help,as with Seb, his Mum and now David, not forgetting helping to rid the area of a dangerous maniac - or so he thinks!
Nik said on 25/Apr/18
@ Sandy Cowell - That's absolutely true! The way Gary offered advice to David just showed the calibre of man that he is, he was determined to help David out and he didn't want to see him suffer so badly when he knew he could help him out! The way Gary advised David was very impressive! As we know Gary has shown unlimited strength of character in his army days, therefore his mistakes in life can be foregiven if he learns from them, and he has the mindset to do this!

Sandy Cowell said on 25/Apr/18
@ Nik - Indeed he does! He has displayed bravery and strength of character for some time now. One can forgive his one human dalliance with Phelan's daughter! Sarah obviously has!
Nik said on 24/Apr/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Good evening!

And when the situation calls for it Gary steps up to the plate like a man, all 5'7.25" of him!
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Apr/18
@ CD - Harry would fit neatly between Lisa George and Brooke Vincent on the 'Coronation Street' line-up page!

How about it, Rob? The fellow is now a permanent fixture in the Soap!
Sandy Cowell said on 24/Apr/18
Gary has turned into a 5ft7.25 superhero, taking time with his girlfriend's troubled brother. Good for him! His character has come such a long way since Mikey joined the Soap!
CD said on 8/Apr/18
I think Mikey is about as listed! Maybe 5ft 7.5 at the most, Harry Visonini (Seb) could be under 5ft 5.
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Apr/18
Oh dear! Now that Mikey, or Gary in the Soap, is locked up in custody, he looks much nearer 5ft7 again, especially when the two much taller cops come in to inform him about the bodies! I think I spoke too soon!

How Mikey could ever have managed to convince those in charge of his 'spotlight' page that he's 5ft10, Heaven only knows!
Sandy Cowell said on 1/Apr/18
Good old Mikey! When asked by teenager Seb for help when confronted with a difficult scenario, that of whether to join in with the retrieving of a gun that Seb is convinced is conceiled in the building site's very concrete, he agrees to! More than can be said for boring, much older, Tim Metcalf, with a reasonably powerful wife!

While the boys hack away at the concrete, you get an excellent opportunity to take in their height difference. I've checked out Seb to be 5ft5, and next to him, I'd say Mikey looks nearer 5ft8 than 5ft7! In fact, I will up him from 5ft7.25 to 5ft7.75 on those grounds. πŸ‡
Nik said on 10/Dec/17
@ Sandy Cowell

I was expecting you to comment on this page over the last few days and I had a look on here a few times to look for a comment by you, but to no avail! Well until now! I found your comment by going onto the new "Comments page" that Rob had rolled out this late Sunday morning! As has been the case before I have gone back to the "Comments page" by pressing the backward arrow after being on the page of a celebrity, after doing so I thought to myself, "this is different", so it must have been published whilst I was on the celebrites' page!
Obviously I knew you would be glad about finding out about Gary being alive, it was also a coincidence that you said you hoped he was still alive and then a few days later we found out that this is indeed the case! It didn't seem right that he was being written out of "Coronation Street" because he is an interesting character with a big part to play in this soap. I wish he would lamp Phelan one!
In terms of his height he can look anywhere from 5'7" - 5'7.75", I guess somewhere between 5'7.25" and 5'7.5" would be a good estimate!
Finally, your autocorrect couldn't have found anything more insulting to call Sarah, but you stopped it in its track, so hard lines! Why couldn't it have called her something like Saffron Platt instead of Satan Platt? I guess that would have been too nice a thing to do!

Cheers Sandy!
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Dec/17
Hooray! They didn't write him out after all! I didn't think the time was right just as he's becoming such a main part of the plot!

Killed off on Monday, returns from the grave on Friday, ready to reignite Phelan's flamingπŸ”₯ anger and trigger a new nasty side of David 😠 - for daring to get another woman pregnant!

This guy, Gary Windass, played of course, by Mikey, looks positively tall standing next to 5ft-nothing Sarah* Platt! Not that 5ft7 and a quarter is by any means short; it's the smaller side of average, but with a shorter-than-average girl on his arms, he could pass for 5ft10! The reason, in my eyes, is that Sarah's proportions are so good that she could pass for 5ft3!

* Nik - You'd never guess what that naughty-boy autocorrect of mine tried to call Sarah? He tried to call her Satan Platt! I hardly think that's very appropriate, do you? πŸ˜‰

πŸ‘Έ= βœ” 😈= βœ– πŸ“±= a very

naughty phone!

Cheers, Nik! Have a lovely weekend! (And you MaryAnne!)

Rob how tall is Ian Puleston-Davies who played Owen, he looked shorter than Mikey, maybe a weak 5ft 7? He was also in Revolver among other things.
Editor Rob
yeah I'd probably say Big G range, weak 5ft 7, I'm sure he's an inch over Jack Shepherd, but not quite as tall as Mikey...
Hans Meiser said on 27/May/17
Napoleon complex. Claiming 5'10 is ridiculous. That's like a 6 footer claiming 6'3 and the difference between 6'' and 6'3 is very noticable.
Ted said on 26/May/17
Listing is fair
Jacky Huynh said on 26/May/17
He's around my height. The 5ft 10 listing is indeed outrageous. But strangely I've had some people guess me that high. Those people either didn't know their height or didn't think before they spoke!

5'10"? Lol, he doesn't look over 5'7" to me.
Nik said on 24/May/17
Thanks for giving Mikey North a page Rob!

I have never been totally sure of his height and have always estimated him to be between 5'6.75" and 5'7.75"! I suppose if I had to have a guess I would say Rob is pretty accurate in having him down as 5'7.25". I have seen quotes of 5'8" on the internet but they must be slightly too high! It's great to hear of a celebrity who is exactly the same height as I am!
Csimpson 6ft said on 23/May/17
Im not sure about 5ft 7.25 but he could be 5ft 7.5
CD said on 23/May/17
Another interesting find: Mikey's agency is listing him as 5ft 10! Click Here
Editor Rob
I'll mention that, as it's frankly outrageous :)
CD said on 23/May/17
From what I've seen he can look as low as 5ft 7 or up to nearly 5ft 8, this listing is decent after seeing him with Carl Froch but I wouldn't go any lower.
Sandy Cowell said on 23/May/17
Ha ha! Excellent addition, Rob!
When Mikey started in 'Coronation Street', he was a bit wet behind the ears! Now, he has truly grown up into quite a hero! If that's what the army did for him, this would count as a great example of turning a boy into a man!
I thought he was actually 5ft7, but he can have that extra quarter of an inch for punching that predator geezer 😝 who is using young Bethany - grrr!
Now I can't do a write-up on someone whose character's name is 'Windass', without having a giggle at his expense! I wonder what was going through his head when he was told what his acting name would be? I reckon he must have quite a good sense of humour to have accepted it! If I knew someone called that, I would pronounce it to full comical effect: wind-arse! I wouldn't be able to resist it!
