Coronation Street's Carla and Bobby to be caught out over Roy lies

Coronation Street spoilers follow.

Coronation Street's Carla Barlow and Bobby Crawford face further problems next week as Roy Cropper gets closer to the truth over their deception.

Carla and Bobby are currently in cahoots with a desperate plan to get Roy out of prison.

Roy was recently arrested and charged with Lauren Bolton's murder following her mysterious disappearance, but viewers know that he's entirely innocent.

Bobby has since given lead detective DS Swain a false statement to save Roy, telling her that he witnessed a strange man leaving Lauren's flat. Although Carla initially disapproved of Bobby's tactics, she later told him that they need to do whatever it takes to save Roy.

Next week, Roy gets his hopes up over Bobby's bogus statement as he tells one of the prison officers that new evidence has come to light in his case.

Roy, who's currently on remand ahead of a trial, optimistically predicts that he might get released.

Dee-Dee Bailey tries her best to fight Roy's corner in court as she makes a new bail application. She explains that Bobby saw a man leaving Lauren's flat, who didn't match Roy's description, but the judge dismisses this and says that it's not enough to secure the café owner's freedom.

When Dee-Dee catches up with Roy in his cell, she urges him not to give up hope despite the setback.

She explains that the police are now planning a reconstruction, which could bring further new evidence out into the open.

Later, though, Roy calls Carla from prison and insists that they need to talk about Bobby's statement.

Has Roy realised that Bobby lied to the police in a plan to save him?

Coronation Street airs these scenes on Friday, April 26.
