Roy Cropper 'to make Coronation Street comeback at Christmas'

Roy Cropper 'to make Coronation Street comeback at Christmas'
David Neilson will reportedly be back as Roy Cropper on Coronation Street over the Christmas period.

Roy Cropper will reportedly make a surprise return to Coronation Street this Christmas just weeks after he left the cobbles.

In scenes which aired last month, Roy - feeling guilty for lying to the police - signed over his business and assets to his niece Nina (Mollie Gallagher) before departing for a new life in South America.

According to The Sun, however, actor David Neilson has been seen back on set ahead of a "dramatic" return over the festive period.

"Fans were upset when they thought Roy had left but he's not going anywhere," a source said.

"David took a couple of weeks off but will be on screen again in a few weeks. Viewers are going to get quite a shock and he's set to be part of a dramatic storyline."

The character of Roy has been a firm fixture in Weatherfield for more than 26 years.
