Coronation Street spoilers – Roy Cropper LEAVES cobbles in emotional goodbye; plus EastEnders & Coronation Street news

CORONATION Street's Roy Cropper has walked the Cobbles for the very last time, as he was seen leaving the show for good in last night's episode.

Roy knew about the gun that killed Natasha but didn’t report it, and has since lied to the police to protect Abi Franklin.

After signing over his entire business and flat to niece Nina, Roy decided to travel to South America to work as a chef for the needy. But his family and friends were devastated at his plans to leave and came together to stop him.

Nothing worked and so in a last ditch effort, Nina locked the cafe door and tried to stop Roy that way. But when the taxi driver beeped his horn, Roy told her it was time for him to go.

“One day I hope you’ll find it in you heart to forgive me,” he said.

    Simon Gregson's children pressured him into accepting IAC invite

    Corrie actor Simon Gregson said he had decided to accept the invitation to be in the latest series of I'm a Celebrity due to pressure from his children, who are big fans of the show.

    "They were just like 'come on dad, we'd love it'," he said

    "So I just said 'ok anything for you guys'.

    "(They) are like 'absolutely do not say 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here' and make sure you at least get as far as possible otherwise it's going to be a huge pile-on when I get home."

    He added: "They're getting big now so it would probably hurt."

    Simon Gregson is 'pretty calm' about entering camp

    Asked if he was nervous about entering the competition and the challenges in store, he said: "I'm pretty calm at the moment but I'm sure all that will change.

    "Best not to think about it at all until the moment you're doing it… what's the point in worrying twice.

    "Let's just wait until you get there, take a deep breath and see how you get on with it."

    Simon Gregson hopes IAC viewers can see past his Corrie character

    Simon Gregson hopes viewers will see he has "a modicum more" intelligence than his on-screen persona Steve McDonald in the latest series of I'm A Celebrity.

    The Coronation Street stalwart, who first appeared on the show in 1989, said he looks forward to people seeing "a different side to me" instead of his usual soap opera antics.

    Gregson said he felt calm but admitted his feelings may well change, as his arrival at Gwrych Castle was teased alongside fellow soap star Adam Woodyatt, of EastEnders.

    Asked if there was much difference between himself and McDonald, he replied: "Not a lot at all.

    "For the simple reason that I had no idea what I was doing when I joined the show, I'd never acted, I didn't know what I was doing, I kind of learned on the job.

    "As the decades rolled by I thought well the simplest way to do this is maybe just be a more exaggerated me.

    "Obviously the big differences are I probably wouldn't do half the things that idiot does, and he wouldn't do half the things I do.

    "It would be nice for people to see I've got a modicum more of intelligence than Steve.

    "It'll be nice for people to see a different side to me, hopefully that'll come across if I'm not too absolutely nervous."

    Adam Woodyatt looking forward to entering IAC

    The 53-year-old, originally from east London, was one of the original characters in EastEnders when it launched in 1985.

    He said: "I've known about doing I'm A Celebrity for a long time and I can't wait to go in now. I don't mind if I am first or last in the castle – I am just really looking forward to being on the show.

    "Why have I finally said yes? Because I am not in EastEnders. That is the honest answer. I am not in contract with the BBC so I can come and do it.

    "Everyone thinks I am Ian Beale and so it's going to be great to show I am not."

    Adam Woodyatt on returning to EastEnders after IAC 2021?

    The actor, who plays fan favourite Ian Beale, said he had finally accepted the offer to appear on the flagship ITV reality show after his contract with the BBC ended.

    But asked whether he planned to return after his time in Gwrych Castle in Wales, he remained tight-lipped.

    He said: "I will go with what happens.

    "I might take the summer off and go and work at my mate's restaurant when he does the pop-up stalls at food festivals. I did it a couple of times this summer and I enjoyed it.

    "But I am just now really looking forward to doing I'm A Celebrity. Programmes like this were a blessed relief during the lockdowns last year and I can't wait to go in."

      Both Corrie's Simon and EastEnders star Andy missed out on the I'm A Celebrity 2021 launch, on Sunday, November 21, 2021.

      In 2019 another Coronation Street star Andy Whyment and EastEnders actor Cliff Parisi entered the I'm A Celebrity Jungle together, when the show was well under way.

      The same scenario occurred in 2020 with Ruthie Henshall and Russell Watson.

      The possibility is still in the cards, however, as late arrivals have taken place after a few days of the series starting.
