Roy Cropper could be in grave danger, according to some concerned Coronation Street viewers.
Fans have spotted a worrying indicator that he’ll be the next Weatherfield resident to DIE a horrible death, after noticing a trend on the Street.
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.
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?
