Two beloved characters from Coronation Street have reconnected, and it’s just too cute to describe.

From 2006 to 2012, Katherine Kelly, 43, portrayed the enduring Becky McDonald in the beloved ITV serial opera.

Of course, one of the best aspects of her character was her relationship with Roy Cropper, who is portrayed by 73-year-old David Neilson and has been a regular on Corrie since 1995.

Numerous memorable scenes featured their on-screen friendship, such as Roy and Hayley (Julie Hesmondhalgh) saving Becky from one of her numerous mishaps or Becky asking ‘Royston’ for guidance on her marriage issues with Steve (Simon Gregson).

However, Katherine and David haven’t been together in a long time, so when they did eventually reunite in 2023, hearts all over the world melted.

Katherine took a cute photo with the legend of the cobbles and posted it to social media.

She captioned the photo, “Well look who I hooked up with today…”

Still one of my all-time favourite people.

Naturally, her fans were living for the moment. One of them gushed about how underrated they two were as a comedy double-act, saying: “I just don’t believe it’s appreciated enough just how underrated you two were.” Beautiful timing, pathos, and an unmistakable deep affection for one another. Years of flawless efforts from you both. I’m grateful.

That’s some serious nostalgia right there. Becky and Roy were the best combination ever, wrote another.

Another person said, “We NEED Becky and Royston to get back together on the street,” and, really? We concur.

Suranne Jones, who portrayed Karen McDonald on the soap opera Corrie from 2000 to 2004, also commented with a string of heart-shaped emoticons, demonstrating her continued devotion to her Corrie roots.

During her time on Coronation Street, Becky had a tonne of dramatic plots, and there was never a lack of drama, whether it involved romance or sibling rivalry.

Her two miscarriages, buying sister Kylie’s baby Max for £20,000 with Steve, and showing up to her own wedding intoxicated are some of her most memorable experiences.

After leaving the long-running programme, Katherine has continued to appear frequently on our televisions.

She has acted in several television shows, such as Liar, Cheat, Innocent, Criminal: UK, and Gentleman Jack.

With just a three-month break in 2016, David, alias Roy, and his shopping bag are still a constant sight on the street.
