In tonight’s second episode of Coronation Street (8.30pm see our TV Guide for full listings) Roy Cropper lies to Carla before saying his goodbyes...

Roy Cropper explains that he’s taking a job as a chef in South America. Nina summons Carla, Cathy, Brian, Fiz, Chesney, and Mary to the cafe, and one by one, Roy’s friends describe how much he means to them. Carla plays Roy a voice message Nina left, implying Roy got dragged into something against his better judgement. Roy refuses to be drawn and Carla heads out, hurt. 

Roy tells Nina that the fact he’s now lying to Carla proves that leaving is the right thing to do. Can Nina stop him from leaving the street he loves so much? 

Carla can't change Roy's mind.
