Coronation Street's Roy to receive a surprise visitor in hospital

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street's Roy Cropper is shocked by an unexpected visitor next week after being rushed back into hospital.

Roy's health is about to take a dramatic turn for the worse, just days after he returns to work at the café for the first time following his prison ordeal.

This week's episodes see Roy's loved ones con him back behind the counter, as they're all concerned by him shutting himself away in his flat.

Shona Platt pretends to be unwell, so Roy reluctantly starts doing shifts again as he doesn't want the business to be short-staffed.

Next week, this tactic backfires when Roy kindly heads off to take some home-made soup to Shona.

Roy is still a target for negative attention after the false allegations that he killed Lauren Bolton, so he's quickly confronted by a gang of thugs.

The group surround Roy and make nasty comments, with worrying consequences as he falls to the floor. Carla Connor rushes over and chases off the gang, before turning her attention to Roy's health.

Roy plays down his collapse but it's clear that he's in pain. When Shona comes clean about how she was never ill, Roy is annoyed and asks her and Evelyn Plummer to leave.

Later, Roy recovers in hospital but is surprised when a visitor appears at his bedside.
