There has been weeks of tip toeing around and lies to cover up even more lies, but now time has ran out for Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill) in Coronation Street who has been living a double life with fiancee Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) and Vicky Jefferies (Kerri Quinn) who is pregnant with his baby and soon, Michelle will finally discover that Robert has been lying to her…
Michelle sees a text on Robert’s phone saying the ring is ready for collection, believing it to be hers she asks him to make sure he picks it up. Robert who already has her ring hides it in his van and collects the replica for Vicky. As he places the cheap ring on Vicky’s finger Jed (Bramwell Donaghey) arrives and is furious. Finding his van window smashed Robert is stunned to see Jed holding Michelle’s ring and wondering why Robert needs two!
Robert is forced to tell Michelle the van was broken into and the ring stolen. When Craig (Colson Smith) comes to take the details Michelle is confused when she discovers he was in Macclesfield at the time.
Robert is flustered when CCTV from the street he said his van was on shows he wasn’t there. Claiming he had got muddled he thinks he is off the hook until Jed turns up at the Bistro and makes it clear he is willing to tell Michelle everything.
How much will Jed reveal? We know both Kym and Tristan are set to leave Coronation Street soon, could this be the beginning of their final storyline together as Robert’s lies begin to unravel?
