Spoilers for Coronation Street: Roy presents Evelyn’s heartfelt Christmas present.

To be honest, he’s got it down pat (Picture: ITV)

As Roy Cropper (David Neilson) prepares a Christmas gift for his closest friend Evelyn Plummer (Maureen Lipman), he soon receives assistance from an unexpected source on Coronation Street.

This year, Roy and Evelyn have become closer. Before having heart surgery a few months ago, Roy penned a letter to Evelyn expressing how much she means to him.

Evelyn was deeply touched, but Yasmeen (Shelley King) stopped her on her way to the hospital so she could tell Roy how she really feels.

Roy spent a lot of time with Yasmeen once he got home since they had a lot in common.

Roy was having fun, but he was blind to Evelyn’s mounting jealousy.

Not that we would ever say that to her.

Up next, Roy has a back spasm that causes a disaster in the cafe a few days before Christmas.

Sue Devaney’s character Debbie assists him upstairs while Evelyn puts on a pinny and tells Roy she will cover for him.

Upon observing their camaraderie, Cassie (Claire Sweeney) eventually tracks down Roy and devises a present idea for Evelyn from him.

Roy tells Cassie at the end of the week that he has found Evelyn’s Christmas gift. Cassie chooses to travel with Roy, but she doesn’t waste any time in coming up with a backup plan when the Woody doesn’t start.

A drunken Evelyn and Mary (Patti Clare) assist Roy in preparing the Christmas meal in the cafe on Christmas Day.

When they have some alone time, Evelyn opens the gift Roy gave her and is really moved by what she finds.

With a little assistance from Cassie, Roy’s strategy appears to be working.

What awaits him and Evelyn in the upcoming year?
