ITV Coronation Street fans baffled over 'missing' scene as Roy Cropper finally freed

Coronation Street viewers were left baffled on Thursday night over a 'missing' scene as Roy Cropper was finally freed.

Only recently, Roy Cropper has found himself wrongly arrested, charged and the number one suspect for the supposed murder of missing teenager Lauren. Soap fans will recall that troubled youngster Lauren abruptly left the cobbles earlier this year and her friend Bobby has been left concerned after he found her flat unlocked with Lauren nowhere to be seen.

Viewers never saw Lauren leave and it seems she told no one close to her of her plan to leave Weatherfield aside from Roy. Bobby reported Lauren as missing to the police and Roy has found himself under suspicion due to his kind nature, especially after he was caught innocently cleaning Lauren's flat, which some people thought proved he was guilty and internet sleuths have since made his life a misery with a barrage of online abuse.

On Thursday's episode, evil Griff Reynolds, who was recently transferred to the same prison as Roy, attempted to get a confession out of the innocent café owner due to his history with Lauren and her father Reece Bolton. Viewers will recall that Griff led a far-right extremist group with Reece and they used the latter's daughter, Lauren, to convince Max Turner to join them.

Using a weapon, Griff tried to get Roy, who he trapped in his cell, to confess to killing Lauren but the café owner refused to and he quickly shouted for help. Griff pretended that it was Roy who had the weapon with the police putting the prison on lockdown and attempted to enter the cell. Believing it was his final moments, Roy asked to speak to niece Nina Lucas and as he was on the phone, Griff attempted to attack him just as Nina revealed that Nathan Curtis had been charged for Lauren's murder, meaning he was free.

The police then managed to storm the cell, where Roy was saved and Griff was dragged away. Roy then broke down in tears over learning his fate to which the scene suddenly cut to him walking out of prison, where Nina and solicitor Dee-Dee Bailey greeted him while music played over the top. It suddenly cut to Roy at the café with his loved ones as they celebrated his release.

However, it was then soon revealed who Lauren's killer really was as Joel Deering left the celebrations as he headed to his car, which youngster Hope Stape had been cleaning amid her fundraising efforts for drama club Little Big Shotz. In a chilling twist, Hope explained that she had found a necklace under his car seat while cleaning as it was revealed to be Lauren's necklace.

This then prompted a graphic flashback, where it showed Joel attacking Lauren, where he left her lifeless and bloodied, before looking at himself in the mirror, where he was shaking and kept touching his face in shock. As Joel rushed out the flat, he grabbed Lauren's necklace on the side. After the flashback, it showed a menacing Joel playing with the necklace on the cobbles before staring into the distance. With Nathan now arrested, will Joel be caught and who else is in danger?

Taking to Twitter, now X, to react to the scenes viewers were left baffled over Roy's quick prison release as they questioned whether they had missed a scene. One person said: "I really don’t think Roy would get out the same day. Surely he would need to go to court and also he would be interviewed about Griff. #Corrie", a different account joked: "#corrie #coronationstreet Don't ever use teleporting again", another put: "This has gone very Shawshank Redemption?? #Corrie" while another added: "No way would he be released that quick. #Corrie."

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8pm on ITV1 and ITV X. * Follow Mirror Celebs and TV on TikTok , Snapchat , Instagram , Twitter , Facebook , YouTube and Threads .
