Coronation Street fans reckon Roy is about to uncover a MASSIVE family secret
It looks like Coronation Street's Roy Cropper may be about to find out a massive family secret his mum had kept from him - at least, according to fans.
The Corrie fan favourite was recently left devastated when he found out that his mum, Sylvia, had died.
While they never saw eye-to-eye, the pair ended up falling out when Sylvia left Weatherfield after Hayley's cancer diagnosis - and Roy was never really able to forgive her for leaving at such a tough time.
Now, though, Coronation Street fans reckon Sylvia had been keeping a secret from Roy: a long-lost sister.

In scenes that aired on Friday night, Roy - who had been left Sylvia's belongings - got a ring polished and cleaned up.
And when Chesney examined it a bit more closely, he pointed out the engraving on the inside, which read: "R.P 01.03.59 Rhea."
Following the episode, fans flooded Twitter with theories about what the engraving could mean - with many saying they reckoned it meant Roy had a secret sibling.
Roy has a sister?

Meanwhile, other fans pointed out that based off the date, Rhea has a milestone birthday coming up - and pointed out that it may pave the way for a family reunion in the next few weeks.
I reckon a sister who was given up for adoption for what ever reason. She will still be alive and will be coming up to her 60th birthday, born in 59, and Roy will find her..... But will it have a happy ending? I doubt it...
