Is Roy in danger?

Roy Cropper was recently seen in Dr Gaddas’ office after experiencing chest pains – and ITV viewers were left terrified for David Neilson‘s lovable character.

Coming up next week in Weatherfield, his niece Nina Lucas (Mollie Gallagher) reveals that he feels nervous over taking his new companion Freddie out for a walk.

This prompts Evelyn Plummer (Dame Maureen Lipman) to offer to accompany him.

The pair set off on their dog walk but Roy suffers terrible chest pains once again.

A worried Evelyn urges him to chase up his appointment with the heart specialist he was recommended to see – but will Roy really go through with it?

One thing is certain – things are about to get a lot worse for the owner of Roy’s Rolls.

In later scenes, Roy walks Freddie through the precinct and the pup spots a cat before giving chase.

Roy is brought up short by the pain in his chest and Evelyn has no other choice but to call an ambulance.

Will they finally get to the bottom of things?

As mentioned above, the fan-favourite started to complain about chest pains after falling ill during a salsa class with Evelyn.

Roy mentioned he was suffering from both chest pains and breathlessness and Dr Gaddas arranged for some tests.

Fans are speculating the worst has yet to come for Roy and are dreading that he may be killed off.

But what if Roy isn’t in danger?

In April, 2023, when his health ordeal first began, a handful of soap viewers worked out what could be wrong with him.

They theorised Roy could be allergic to his own dog, Freddie, whom he adopted earlier this year following the sudden death of an old friend.

“Maybe Roy is allergic to the dog or having panic attacks”, one fan commented on Twitter.

Another echoed: “Please make Roy better praying it’s just the dog allergy as can cause the symptoms he has.”

Coronation Street airs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8pm on ITV.
