Coronation Street fans are fearing for Roy Cropper after his horrendous ordeal in prison.

As soap viewers will know, Roy was wrongly charged with the murder of Lauren Bolton and spent weeks behind bars, despite being innocent. Things came to a tense head when far-right extremist Griff tried to kill him in prison.

Thankfully, Roy was saved, and later released. Emotional scenes showed him return to Weatherfield to be reunited with his loved ones.

Viewers were also made aware that it was, in fact, Joel Deering - Nathan's solicitor - who is behind Lauren's grim disappearance, but nobody in Coronation Street has any idea.

Friday's episode showed DS Swain apologise to Roy for his "ordeal", and those watching also saw Roy being short with Sam Blakeman, before snapping at niece Nina Lucas. Viewers quickly took to X, formerly Twitter, to make a sad prediction about the much-loved café owner.

@winis_world said: "I think that this is gonna make Roy change his personality. That makes me sad." Brian said: "Roy is going to have a full on breakdown isn't he? [crying emoji]" and Ryan said: "I hope Roy doesn't start sleepwalking again following recent events".

Matt said: "I get the feeling everything that's happened is gonna have a lasting effect on Roy". Lydia said: "Don't let this be the death of Roy please".
