Top 50 Corrie Couples - No. 3

3. Roy Cropper and Hayley Patterson/Cropper 1998-2014 (242 votes)

One of Corrie’s most loved couples who I’m sure you’ll agree deserves to be in the top 3.

Originally a controversial storyline, the romance of Roy and Hayley blossomed to become the most loved in the soap’s history. What made it controversial was that Hayley was a transsexual. For the first few months, this would dominate their relationship, with them being rejected by the local church when they wanted to marry. They eventually married in the café with their friends around them. 

Unlike other classic couples, Roy and Hayley were perfect for each other and enjoyed the same interests: documentaries, railways and novels. When Hayley found out she had a son from when she was a man and that she met him behind Roy’s back, it threatened their marriage. In 2007, Hayley left for Africa to help build a school, leaving Roy to run the café alone. He soon found help in ex jailbird Becky Granger and neighbour Ken Barlow and during Hayley’s absence, both Becky and Ken shared memorable scenes with the unique Roy. When she returned, she seemed lost and later confessed to Roy that she had fallen for a co-worker in Africa, but she soon found out that he was a womaniser.

In recent years, the Croppers had been fairly quiet in means of storylines until the last year when Hayley found out she had terminal cancer. Over the last few months, we, as fans, enjoyed, and cried, at various scenes of the Croppers’ last moments together – be it Blackpool or in their small flat. Here is a partnership that will be greatly missed.

Do the Croppers deserve to be at No.3? Will you miss their partnership? Leave your comments!

I think Karen and Steve will be top 2.

I also expected Roy and Hayley to be number one. Of the remaining two spots, I'm sure Stan and Hilda will feature. But who else??? Have Karen and Steve been listed yet?
