Coronation Street reveals there’s a dark side of Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill) that is coming out. This happens as he is left heartbroken after Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) decided they should just end their relationship now.
In recent Corrie episodes, Robert was hoping he and Michelle could fix things after he made an insensitive comment about baby Ruairi’s death. However, Michelle is having a hard time, and she thinks she can’t go through another pregnancy.
Robert wants to have a child of his own, and Michelle says she can’t give him what he wants, so it’s better to end their relationship right now because someday it is going to be an issue again.
