The 72-year-old made the most coronavirus restrictions easing and treated himself to a stylish trim.

The actor sported a shorter hairdo with some viewers insisting it "took years off" of him.

His recent trip to the barbers sent viewers wild, with one writing: "Ah Roy. The hair cut is great. #corrie"

Another posted: "Loving the haircut Roy!! It's taken years off you #coronationstreet"

A third shared: "Has Roy had his locks cut. I wonder where he got that done?"

Meanwhile, one perceptive viewers penned: "The whole village has had a hair cut it seems #CoronationStreet."

Earlier this month, viewers watched heartbroken as Nina’s boyfriend Seb died from his injuries from the unprovoked attack.

Roy was forced to break the news to Nina in emotional scenes.

Now actor David has said it could push Roy over the edge and show how dangerous he could be.

“I think as Roy, the rational person that he is, living by this moral code, he would believe in rationality and the system to care of it,” he told The Sun and other media. 

“But if something happens, like all of us really, if something happens to me and mine, I think he’s capable of anything. 

“I think he could be quite dangerous. I remember him attacking Gary Windass with a baseball or cricket bat! 

“If something happens to Nina, he’s only human but that’s not the way forward for society or to deal with it. 

“It’s almost like it feels to me that he’s got the brake on, it’s a handle for me and the character.”

And he called back to when Roy first appeared on the cobbles as Deirdre Barlow’s stalker – and an oddball.

“It has changed over the years yes, because he was this strange guy stalking Deirdre and a real loner and a real oddball,” he said.

“And one of the notes was that he just doesn’t get it, he stands too close, he just doesn’t get it. 

“Nowadays he’s become this font of all wisdom, he’s turned into Rita, people keep coming into the café and I give them all this wisdom.”
