COBBLES legend Roy Cropper will be seen having some stern words with his former foster son Wayne Hayes in Coronation Street next week as the Health and Safety officer continues to grill him about Carla Connor.
As the week begins Roy – who’s played by David Neilson – is rattled when Brian Packham quizzes him about his trip to Portsmouth and wonders if he solved the mystery of his dead mum’s ring.
When Roy is evasive, Brian – Peter Gunn – tells him that he’s enlisted Wayne to help him figure the mystery out. Roy hides his worries and smiles encouragingly at Brian’s plan.
Later, Brian and Wayne try to get Roy interested in their research, but Roy ushers them out of the café, making out he has to close up because he’s due at Ken Barlow’s.
Wayne is left puzzled by Roy’s behaviour and is worried for him.
Later still, Roy grows tired about Wayne’s preoccupation about Carla and tells him sternly that he’d appreciate it if he stopped using him to try and glean info about the factory boss.
Will Wayne do as he’s told or will he keep up with his efforts to bring Carla down?
Corrie fans have been convinced that Wayne – played by actor Adam Barlow – has been out to get Carla since he first arrived in Weatherfield after the factory collapse in March.
Viewers spotted Roy’s former foster child giving Carla a creepy stare as he began his inspection of Underworld following the collapse that left Rana Habeeb dead.
Taking to Twitter one wrote: “#corrie #coronationstreet That Wayne character is so creepy and sinister.”
