It was all go for poor Roy in Corrie last night as he found himself caught up in the crossfire of a car robbery. The cafe owner witnessed the incident going down on the cobbles and like the quiet hero he is tried to stop it but wound up going over a garden wall. Well, his stunt double did, as eagle-eyed viewers were quick to spot.
It's not too surprising that 68-year-old actor David Nielson - who plays Roy - opted out of taking the dive himself but fans couldn't help get a kick out of how little his stunt double looked like him.
And whoever thought that Roy Cropper would ever need a stunt double?!
