    Coronation Street's Roy Cropper will finally reach a turning point in the New Year as he scatters his late wife Hayley's ashes.

    David Neilson, who plays Roy, was spotted filming the poignant scenes out on location in Manchester yesterday (December 3).

    Paparazzi photographs show that Roy will scatter the ashes at the boating lake where he and Hayley shared their first kiss.

    Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) and Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) will both join Roy in order to pay their own respects to Hayley.

    The scenes hint at a fresh start for Roy, as he previously planned to scatter Hayley's ashes in Blackpool two months ago but was unable to go through with it.

    Roy didn't feel ready to let go of Hayley when he paid a visit to the seaside resort in October, but it seems that he will be in a different mindset when these scenes air in early 2015.

    Coronation Street's producer Stuart Blackburn has previously confirmed that fans will see Roy on "an upward path" next year, but not before he experiences a difficult Christmas.

    Coronation Street's producer Stuart Blackburn has revealed more about the new friendship coming up for Roy Cropper.

    After a difficult year, Roy looks likely to reach a turning point in a future storyline as he gets his own allotment and strikes up a bond with a new female character.

    While romance isn't on the cards for the popular café owner, viewers will see him back to his old self after a year of grief for his late wife Hayley.

    Blackburn told Inside Soap: "Roy meets a widowed lady over on the next allotment. She's not going to be a love interest, but someone who Roy will feel obliged to help guide through the world.

    "We know how nervous Roy is around people he doesn't know, so the fact that he's able to come out of his shell and offer real, redemptive support to a complete stranger is a sign that the Roy we all know and love is back."

    Blackburn also promised that there is much more to come for Tracy Barlow's feud with Carla Connor, which intensified with Rob Donovan's arrest late last year. Obviously Tracy saves her from the crash then !

    He said: "Tracy blames Carla for losing Rob and that will always be at the back of her mind. We have a story coming up where Carla will unknowingly take something away from Tracy that she holds dear.

    "In Tracy's head, it'll be the last time Carla ever does that. Remember, Tracy's killed before and got away with it."

    Coronation Street continues at 7pm tonight (January 21) as the show's mini-bus crash storyline continues.

    I'm sick of Tracy....

    Mind you I was sick of her about five minutes after Kate Ford first opened her mouth back in 2002.

    I'm glad Roy's getting a new friend that'll help pull him out of his grief, but I must say that his grief hasn't really come across on screen to me. I expected much to be made of Roy's distress after Hayley died - he is after all the type of person who can't cope with change - but a few weeks hiding away with his trains and the occasional scene are all we've got.

    Needless to say I blame the writing and not David Neilson.

    Coronation Street café owner Roy Cropper will fall out with Sharif Nazir in an upcoming storyline.

    David Neilson and Marc Anwar, who play the characters, were spotted filming an argument while working on location in Manchester this week.

    Future episodes will see the pair forced to share an allotment, but it's far from a happy partnership when they can't agree on how to use the patch.

    The argument continues

    Roy and Sharif end up splitting the plot in two, but it looks as though their comedic bickering could still last for a while.

    Despite the early tensions, Roy's hobby will ultimately mark a turning point for him as he starts to move on from his difficult year.

    In a recent interview with Inside Soap, Coronation Street's producer Stuart Blackburn confirmed that Roy will meet a troubled new character while working on the allotment - giving him something new to focus on after a year of grief for his wife Hayley.

    Roy and Sharif's row attracts attention

    Blackburn commented: "Roy meets a widowed lady over on the next allotment. She's not going to be a love interest, but someone who Roy will feel obliged to help guide through the world.

    "We know how nervous Roy is around people he doesn't know, so the fact that he's able to come out of his shell and offer real, redemptive support to a complete stranger is a sign that the Roy we all know and love is back."
