Roy is undoubtedly one of the ITV soap’s most beloved characters, ever since he joined the cobbles in 1995 – and his death would leave many viewers devastated.

It’s gonna be a nervy final few days for Ruby, Ryan and Roy.

But one fan thinks it’s on the cards, after making a connection between all the recent deaths in the ITV soap.

Writing on Coronation Street ITV Facebook fan page, one viewer wrote: “It’s been a bad year for people with names beginning with R.”

He continued: “First Rana died. Then Rick. More recently Richard. And now Robert. It’s going be a nervy final few days for Ruby, Ryan and Roy.”


Fans were quick to respond to his observation, with one replying: “Rita had a nasty fall as well…”

Another added: “Maybe there is a good reason why Rosie hasn’t returned.”

A third cried: “Please not Roy, I love him.”

“Here’s hoping for Ryan, he’s just awful!” hoped another. “Weak, and a useless character.”


Viewers know that Coronation Street saw multiple deaths in 2019 – not all of them with the names beginning in R.

Audrey Roberts’ conman boyfriend Lewis Archer was the first to die, after suffering a heart attack in a tragic New Year’s Day plot.

Viewers were also shocked by the off-screen death of Roy’s mum, Sylvia Goodwin, in January.

Shona Ramsey’s abusive ex-Dane Hibbs also died off-screen, after suffering a drug overdose in February.

Rana Habeeb died in the tragic factory roof accident – caused by Gary Windass – in March, closely followed by loan shark Rick Neelan who was also killed by Gary.

Rick was smashed over the head with a rock during a fight to the death in the woods in June.

John Booker, the man Emma thought was her dad, died off-screen from stomach cancer in August.

In October, Corrie viewers were left sobbing when Sinead Tinker lost her battle with cancer.

Shortly after, Roy’s long-lost brother died of a terminal illness, and Robert Preston was killed in the gun siege over Christmas, as was the perpetrator Derek Milligan.

That’s a lot of death for one small community! Who do you think will be next?
