Corrie viewers were baffled by Roy Cropper’s festive costume
Coronation Street viewers were confused on Wednesday night, when Roy Cropper emerged from Roy’s Rolls in an unusual fancy dress costume.
Roy was dressed up as “Pelznickel” for the festive period – a figure in German folklore, known for dressing head to toe in fur and giving out gifts.
However, some viewers were convinced that his big grey beard and scruffy overalls made him look more like Hagrid from Harry Potter.
