Coronation Street’s Roy Cropper’s (David Neilson) ongoing storyline of discovering the meaning behind the mystery ring he inherited from his late mother will reach its conclusion in upcoming episodes as he discovers a shocking secret about her.
Since finding the ring among his mother’s belongings and the engraving on the ring saying ‘R.P 01.03.59 Rhea’, Roy, Brian (Peter Gunn) and Wayne (Adam Barlow) have tried to discover the reason behind the engraving and why his mother had it in the first place – let’s just say luck hasn’t been on their side so far!
The pieces of this puzzle will begin to fit together soon when health and safety inspector Wayne arrives at the cafe to tell Roy he’s been doing some more research into Sylvia’s ring. Roy, however, asks Wayne to stop his research and when both Brian and Wayne realise Roy has been acting strangely ever since he got back from Portsmouth, Roy admits the secret of the ring reveals his mother had an affair.
Some advice from Cathy (Melanie Hill) changes Roy’s mind, and he tells Brian and Wayne he would be grateful for their help in researching his family.
But it doesn’t end there! Brian and Wayne’s research will lead Wayne to introducing Roy to Alice Parrott, who reveals that her father, Raymond, had an affair with Sylvia. Alice hands Roy a number of love letters, leaving him somewhat upset as he realises there was a loving side to his mother that he never saw.
This leaves Roy to come to the conclusion that his mother was capable of love, but sadly didn’t love him. As he sees Wayne out, Wayne thanks Roy for the kindness that he and Hayley (Julie Hesmondhalgh) showed him as a child and promises to keep in touch.
At the end of the week, now that he has closure on the mystery behind the ring, Roy reveals he will be going to Cumbria to scatter Sylvia’s ashes and also visit Carla. Don’t worry! His visit will only be for a few days, and Roy will soon return to the cobbles.
