Roy Glover is a fictional character on the British soap opera Emmerdale played by Nicky Evans. He first appeared on 4 August 1994 and departed six years later on 22 August 2000.[1]

Storylines

Roy arrived in the village as a 14-year-old in August 1994 with his parents, Ned and Jan and his older siblings Dave and Linda. Whilst at school Roy befriended Scott and Kelly Windsor. Roy was a troublesome teenager. Once when his sister Linda and her boyfriend Biff Fowler cleaned Alan Turner's landrover for him, Roy threw mud and dirt all over it so he could clean it again and get paid. Both of Roy's older siblings died, Dave in a fire at Home Farm and Linda in a car crash, leaving him the last surviving Glover child. Roy's first love was his schoolfriend Kelly. They dated briefly before drifting apart and didn't get back together until 1999 by which time Kelly had been in a brief relationship with her stepbrother Scott. Roy and Kelly were soon engaged and got married on 26 May 1999. But Kelly had been seeing Scott behind Roy's back and he exposed their affair when she refused to leave Roy, but she denied everything to Roy and he believed her. Once married, Roy and Kelly suffered financial difficulties and took cleaning jobs. Kelly stole some jewellery from one of their clients and held a dinner party at their home and the police were called. In order to protect Kelly, Roy took the blame for the theft and was jailed. When he was released Kelly came clean about her affair with Scott and revealed to Roy that she planned to start a new life in London. Roy forgave her and he and Kelly briefly reconciled but he was unable to make the relationship work. He divorced Kelly and left the village in August 2000 to start a new life for himself in Ibiza.
