Gary Mallett and his wife Judy were residents of 9 Coronation Street in the latter part of the 1990s.

The Malletts moved to the street in 1995. Gary was a builder, currently working laying telecom cables. He became a resident handyman and was briefly in a partnership with Jim McDonald, with spells as a window cleaner and a driver for Street Cars. His main passion, though, was his motorbike.

The Malletts struggled to conceive a child but on Christmas Day 1998 they were blessed with twins, Billy and Becky. Before that, Judy had been so desperate for a child that the Malletts had agreed to buy Zoe Tattersall's daughter Shannon, until the troubled teen reneged on the deal. In 1999, Gary lost his wife to an embolism. He stayed on in Weatherfield for another year before leaving with the twins to live in Blackpool with his new partner Paula Shipley.

Gary Mallett and his wife Judy moved into 9 Coronation Street when Jack and Vera Duckworth sold the property and bought the Rovers Return Inn during late-1995. He had worked on an oil rig and seemed to enjoy wearing heavy gold jewelry. The couple had satellite TV installed immediately, and at Christmas a big sign in their window proclaimed it was the home of "Santa's Nookie Nest." Gary was an old-style "lad" and a "man's man". Rowing with Judy, playing the drums, getting electrocuted due to faulty wiring, and holding a loud party which terrified neighbours Derek and Mavis Wilton. His mode of transport was a motorbike purchased from Jim McDonald.

Wife Judy worked in an amusement arcade and there met Zoe Tattersall and her boyfriend, Liam Shepherd. After learning that Zoe and Liam needed money because they were expecting a baby, Judy (struggling with her own fertility issues) offered Zoe £2,000 for the baby, despite Gary's objections and Zoe agreed. When the baby was born, she was named Katy Mallett and Judy allowed people to assume that Gary was the baby's father because it explained why baby Katy lived with them. However, Zoe bonded with her daughter and took her back, renaming her Shannon, supported by Ashley Peacock, Leanne Battersby and her boyfriend, Nick Tilsley.

However, not long afterwards, Judy discovered that she was pregnant and went on to give birth to twins William and Rebecca on Christmas Day 1998. Nine months later, Judy collapsed and died after she suffered a blood clot caused by injuries sustained in a road accident caused by Terry Duckworth. When Terry arrived at his parents' house on Christmas Day, Gary punched him, blaming him for Judy's death. In October 2000, Gary decided to leave Weatherfield with his children.
