    Roy rescues Cathy
    Roy Cropper proves to be a knight in shining armour in next week’s Coronation Street when he comes to Cathy’s rescue.
    The hoarder is left trapped and unconscious when a pile of boxes suddenly come tumbling down on top of her.
    When she fails to turn up for the curry evening she had agreed to attend, Roy gets concerned and heads to Cathy’s house to find out what’s happened.
    Realising she’s trapped, Roy breaks the door down and rescues her from the pile of debris before pointing out that her house is a potential death trap.
    He decides to take matters into his own hands and while Roy persuades a reluctant Cathy to have a day out with him, Tyrone, Fiz and Chesney kindly clear some junk out of her house.
    When she gets home she hits the roof to see all her junk has gone but Tyrone assures her they haven’t dumped it and shows her how they’ve boxed it all up and labelled it so she can decide what to dump and what to keep.
    Cathy’s touched, revealing how after Alan’s death, hoarding junk gave her comfort and admits to Roy that she’s scared that the longer she stays in the house, the worse she’ll become. Sympathetic, Roy makes Cathy an offer...

    Coronation Street will wave goodbye to Roy Cropper next year - but don't worry, it's just for three months.

    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.

    A Coronation Street spokesperson confirmed that the soap's team were happy to grant Neilson the time off as he shared his plans well in advance.

    This allowed writers and producers time to create a suitable exit storyline to explain why cafe owner Roy won't be around for a while.

    Brooke Vincent and Les Dennis, who play Sophie Webster and Michael Rodwell respectively, will also be taking time off from ​Coronation Street next year after landing theatre jobs of their own.

    Endgame will run at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow between February 4 and February 20, before moving to Manchester's HOME Theatre for more dates from February 25.

    I was really gutted before I realised David's absence will only be for three months. I'll still miss Roy for that time though.

    Coronation Street Spoilers: Roy Cropper in grave danger this Christmas? But who’s having a festive fling?
    The cast of Coronation Street have of course already filmed the episodes we’re going to see airing over Christmas this year, given that the show films around six weeks ahead of broadcast.
    And it was while filming some of those scenes that the Daily Mirror’s photographers spotted David Neilson and Melanie Hill – who respectively play the roles of Roy Cropper and his love interest Cathy Matthews – featuring in a shocking plot twist…
    In images on the newspaper’s website, we see Roy dragging Cathy out of her smoke-filled house after a fire threatened to trap her inside. But could Roy put himself in grave danger by going back in to the inferno?
    Well, of course, that’s entirely speculation, however, as David is due to leave the show on a sabbatical in the coming months, it could well be that this storyline will feature in his exit plot.
    However, back to the fire scenes, and the newspaper’s article adds, “Things will take a turn for the worse when it emerges that Cathy is actually the cause of the fire.”
    So while that may leave Roy and Cathy’s relationship on the rocks, elsewhere, love is set to blossom for Eva Price and Aidan Connor, and, as we’ve previously reported, for Kevin Webster and Anna Windass.
    Of Anna’s new love interest plot, Debbie Rush – who of course plays the role of Anna – told OK! magazine, “[Anna] will start out by having a Christmas that’s very dull, but it turns out to be very merry when an unexpected invitation to Sally and Tim’s house leads to a close encounter with Kevin Webster!”
    Meanwhile, Catherine Tyldesley, who plays Eva, commented, “The thought of Christmas depresses [Eva] a little bit because she’s single…
    “But actually, things take a bit of a positive turn and there’ll be a lot of heavy flirting between Eva and Aidan.”
    And it seems all this new-found love will be set to flourish while Coronation Street is transformed into a winter wonderland, which comes about after Tyrone – who can’t afford to pay for a trip to Lapland – insists that this Christmas must be the best little cancer sufferer Hope has ever had.
