Coronation Street fans are now concerned Roy (played by David Neilson) could make a soap exit after finding out his mother Sylvia Goodwin (Stephanie Cole) is dying.
The character will be left devastated when his mum Sylvia dies on the anniversary of Hayley Cropper’s (Julie Hesmondhalgh) death this coming week.
He will be seen to reject surrogate daughter Carla Connor’s (Alison King) help when he finds out the sad news.
Roy will discover his mother has suffered a heart attack during a tough week thinking about Hayley.
Carla will turn to cafe worker Shona Ramsey (Julia Goulding) and tell her she is worried about the coming anniversary.
Roy seemingly runs away as Carla receives a call from Sylvia, so Carla reports him missing to the police.
However, Roy will return just as Carla is giving a description to the police and apologises for any inconvenience caused.
The pair then share some memories about the late Hayley in emotional scenes.
In an upsetting twist, they are then interrupted by Shona who has a devastating update.
She breaks the news that Sylvia has been taken seriously ill.
Later in the episode, Roy will call the hospital, only to find out his mother has had a heart attack.
Roy will leave Coronation Street to rush to his mother’s bedside to be with her at this tough time.
Could the character exit for good after it all becomes too much on the week of Hayley’s anniversary?
At such a delicate time, will Roy take the news as best as he can and be there for his mother?
Unfortunately, it seems Sylvia won’t make it after her heart attack.
Coronation Street sources told the Daily Star last year Sylvia would be killed off screen.
The insider revealed: “It’s a shame she’s being bumped off like this.
“She was a great character and everyone loves a Corrie battle-axe.”
Long-time fans of the show will remember Sylvia previously resided at 16a Victoria Street, the flat above Roy’s Rolls, with Roy and wife Hayley.
She was last seen in Weatherfield in 2013, but has been referenced on several occasions since.
Coronation Street continues on Monday on ITV at 7.30pm.
