Coronation Street: Roy is free

Corrie fans will have been on the edge of their seats for last week’s rollercoaster episodes which saw Roy’s life hanging on a thread.

With Griff confronting him over Lauren’s ‘murder’ in his prison cell, Griff threatened him with a sharp object.

He then demanded that Roy ended his own life, writing a final letter to Nina. However, Roy begged him to let him give Nina one last phone call.

As Roy was on the phone to his niece, the prison security team then entered the cell and removed Griff before any harm could come to Roy.

Later on, Roy was freed from prison due to Nathan now being charged and made a prime suspect in the Lauren case.
