Roy makes shock decision in Corrie to leave Weatherfield for good

Can Nina stop him from leaving the street he loves?

After DS Abney calls at No.13 to reveal that the gun used to kill Natasha was the same gun used by Tez in a raid several years ago, Abi meets with Tez in Victoria Garden and begs him to keep the police off her back.

Clocking their exchange, Roy watches with concern and when Nick calls in the cafe, he tells Roy how the police are in the process of tracing the gun that was used to kill Natasha.

Meeting up with Tez in the ginnel, Kevin implores him not to ruin Abi’s life whilst Roy advises Abi to tell the police the truth about the gun.

Calling at the cafe, DS Abney tells Roy that she has some more questions she’d like to ask him about the night of the sinkhole collapse. Once again he lies to the police on Abi's behalf.

When he tells Abi this, she tells Kevin that it’s only a matter of time before the police link her to the gun. Telling Nina that the gun used to kill Natasha was the same one Abi was going to use to kill Corey, Roy tells her that as a result, they must both accept responsibility for Natasha’s death.

Calling at No.13, DS Abney tells Abi and Kevin that they’ve arrested Tez, but so far he can’t remember who he sold the gun to. And calling at the solicitors, Roy tells Imran that he wants to sign over his flat and his business to Nina as he no longer needs them.

When Sally suggests they discuss ideas for the Christmas Market, Roy asserts that he won’t be getting involved and calls at the garage to ask Abi to sell the Woody for him as soon as possible.

Nina is troubled when Roy asserts that he no longer wants to burden her with his own pain and guilt and is more worried than ever when Abi tells her that Roy is selling the Woody.

When she finds out from Adam that Roy has signed over his entire estate to her with immediate effect, she’s shocked and tells Abi that she's frightened Roy is going to take his own life.

Later, Roy reveals that he plans to leave Weatherfield for good, tonight, explaining that he's taking a job as a chef in South America.

Nina summons Carla, Cathy, Brian, Fiz, Chesney and Mary to the cafe and one by one, Roy’s friends describe how much he means to them. But when Carla plays Roy a voice message Nina left, implying that he got dragged into something against his better judgement, he refuses to be drawn and Carla heads out.

Telling Nina that the fact he’s now lying to Carla proves that leaving is the right thing to do, can Nina stop Roy from leaving the street he loves?

Coronation Street continues Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV
