Sarah Platt (played by Tina O’Brien) was horrified when Gary Windass (Mikey North) confessed he’d murdered Rick Neelan (Greg Wood) to protect her on Coronation Street. However, despite Adam Barlow (Sam Robertson) demanding she tell the police what she knows, Sarah refused and now the real reason for her loyalty may have been revealed.
Adam issued his wife an ultimatum; either tell the police Gary was responsible for Rick’s death or risk him walking away from their marriage.
Sarah refused to admit the truth to Adam but his suspicions were all but confirmed when she argued that if Gary did kill Rick it was to protect her family.

When asked if she feels responsible for Rick’s death, she said: “Yeah, I think she does.”
