Later in the week, Mary Taylor visits Roy in hospital as he recovers.

Roy's mood is bleak as he tells Mary that he keeps trying to remember the details of a conversation he overheard between Lauren and Max, because he feels certain that it has some significance.

Mary urges Roy not to give up trying to recall what happened, and reassures him that the full memory will come back to him eventually.

But will Roy remember the important details before he faces trial for Lauren's murder?

Roy's loved ones and Corrie fans have been shocked by the news of mild-mannered Roy's imprisonment. But David Neilson, who plays the café owner, has admitted that he's "amazed" that Roy hasn't been jailed sooner.

"He's his own worst enemy! I mean, he needs support from himself, he puts himself there," he joked. "I'm amazed that I [Roy] haven't been in prison before because everyone else has!"

Coronation Street airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
