    Fan favourite David Neilson is currently gearing up to film a surprise exit from the role of Roy, as he's asked for time off to take on a theatre role.

    Neilson has signed up to appear in a production of Samuel Beckett's Endgame, which will have dates in Glasgow and Manchester in early 2016.

    The project will involve a Coronation Street reunion for Neilson, as his former co-star Chris Gascoyne (Peter Barlow) will also be starring in the play.**
    I think that spoiler is an old one. They were both in Endgame together but that was a couple of years ago.

    I agree - he's the one friend who tells her what she needs to hear, instead of going on about how wonderful she is.

    The Roy’s Rolls cafe owner’s “leaving” storyline has been revealed that he will have to make an emergency visit to look after his mother, who will have suffered a massive heart attack. But it’s not known if the character (Sylvia) is going to live or die this time. You may remember a similar storyline saw Roy leave the street for a short while last February.

    Coronation Street bosses have not been available to comment.
    This article was posted on the 29th December but I haven't heard any more about it since then. Does anyone know if Roy is actually leaving?

    He already has 3 half siblings on his father's side so they don't really need to introduce another sister for him. Having said that, I'm looking forward to finding out who this mysterious person is. I just hope they don't re-write his backstory like they did with Tyrone - deciding that Sylvia wasn't his mother or his father wasn't his father, for example.

    I am quite sure that Sylvia was his real mother but agree with you that it would be silly if the Tyrone storyline would be repeated .. but a sister by Sylvia might be different to half brothers by his father ..... I would say lets see

    I would like to see more of Roy's family

    I liked Sylvia

    I liked her too - she brought out different aspects of Roy's personality and revealed a little more about his childhood. I know she was a nosy old battleaxe by that point but it can't have been easy raising a child like Roy, especially after her husband left.
    A new sibling for Roy would be interesting. They could be similar to him, giving him someone to share his eccentric hobbies with. Or they could be the complete opposite and find him weird and embarrassing. The second option would allow for more conflict and drama, but I'd be happy with either.

    Looks like his friendship with Carla is entering a new and more difficult phase as she covers up for him. I don't think he'll be happy about it when he finds out (and he will find out - this is Corrie after all..).
