Coronation Street villain Griff Reynolds prepares to kill Roy Cropper

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street's Roy Cropper faces a terrifying showdown with Griff Reynolds next week.

The fan favourite finds himself in terrible danger when Griff decides that he must be guilty of Lauren Bolton's murder.

Roy is currently being held on remand at the prison after being arrested and charged over Lauren's presumed death.

Later this week, there's a worrying turn of events for Roy when Griff is transferred back to Weatherfield Prison. The villain has links to Lauren, whose father Reece was part of his far-right gang.

The story takes centre stage in next week's special week for Corrie, which sees the soap air every evening at 7.30pm.

Roy's week gets off to a bad start when he heads into his cell and finds that the book he's been reading has been deliberately damaged. The book lies soaked in tea and has a broken spine, in an apparent warning from Griff.

Before long, Griff makes his presence felt again by entering Roy's prison cell and snooping around.

Later, Griff instructs fellow prisoner Roscoe to lure Roy to the jail's library. An oblivious Roy goes along with Roscoe's invitation, giving Griff the opportunity to enter his empty cell once more.

Once Roy heads back from the library, he's unsettled to find Griff waiting for him.

Griff pulls out a weapon and menacingly orders Roy to reveal what he did with Lauren's body.

Roy refuses to confess to a murder he didn't commit, so Griff holds the makeshift knife to his throat and orders him to say his last words.
