It is reported that a Coronation Street character will be found wandering around Weatherfield in their pyjamas as part of an upcoming storyline on the soap.

Warning: spoiler alert!

Mail Online reports that actor David Neilson, who plays Roy Cropper, was seen shooting night scenes in pyjamas in a park, prompting speculation that the death of Roy's estranged father is the cause of his bizarre behaviour.

In the filmed scenes, two youths accost Roy, who becomes distressed.

However, a neighbour from Coronation Street is out walking her dog, sees what is happening and shouts at them to leave Roy alone.

The neighbour is Deirdre (Anne Kirkbride), and she takes Roy by the hand and tries to bring him home.
