The unthinkable is happening as Street stalwart Roy Cropper makes plans to exit. Plus Kelly turns to drugs as her situation gets desperate, and there’s a breakthrough where a grieving Sam is concerned.
All this and more in your spoiler-filled guide to Coronation Street in the week of 22-26 November 2021.
Roy decides to leave
The police are asking questions about the gun used to shoot Natasha and after Roy ends up lying on Abi’s behalf, he finds himself struggling with his guilt.
But his reaction to the situation ends up being quite radical, with Wednesday’s episodes seeing him announce that he’s leaving town to take a job as a chef in south America! What’s more, he’s signed over his entire estate to Nina and has asked Abi to sell the Woody for him.

Despite pleas from Carla, Cathy, Brian, Fiz, Chesney and Mary that he stick around, Roy is intent on exiting. But viewers will have to wait and see whether Nina’s last-ditch attempt to convince him not to leave the Street will have the desired effect…
Spice nightmare for homeless Kelly
Kelly’s situation is becoming increasingly perilous, with the latest development seeing her being offered some free spice by a local drug dealer.
Despite initially turning down the offer, Kelly will ultimately decide to smoke spice after her attempts to earn Nina’s forgiveness end up failing once again. But as Kelly stumbles down the street, some drunk school kids end up encircling and jeering at her. The big question, though, is whether Nina will intervene or leave Kelly in a similar situation to what she went through.
Sam finds solace in stargazing
George calls at the flat with an old telescope for Sam and sets it up on the balcony for him.
Nick, meanwhile, worries about a memory note he read in which Sam wrote how he wished his last words to his mum had been different. But it looks as though there may just be a chink of light on the horizon when George’s love of the stars leaves Sam giggling.
Yet despite this being a breakthrough following weeks of silence, Nick can’t help but wish that he were the one making his son laugh.
Faye feels on edge after prison release
Faye is home from prison, but she isn’t keen on the fuss being made by Craig and ends up fleeing upstairs.
And an already tense situation worsens later in the week when a nervy Faye starts back at the Bistro and ends up dropping a tray of food. Admitting defeat, Faye then tells Debbie that she can’t work at the restaurant as being there brings back such terrible memories.
Max wants to make amends
Following his ill-timed video, Max is facing flak from the likes of Asha, Summer and Aadi. And David’s anger is further fuelled when he learns from Daniel that Max didn’t show up at school again.
David then orders Max to apologise to everyone he’s upset, but when the sullen teen refuses, there’s a tussle over his laptop, which gets accidentally dropped to the ground. In the aftermath of the fallout, Max ends up confiding in Daniel how he wishes he could put things right. But is it too late to make amends?
