Coronation Street: Tracy pregnant with convict Rob’s baby?

Was this the reason behind the unlikely bunk-up?

Coronation Street viewers have ridiculed a scene in which Tracy Barlow and Rob Donovan got it on in his prison cell.

Firstly, they weren’t buying that the couple would have been left alone together.

Secondly, they refused to accept that the pair would have got down and dirty then and there – especially with such a small window of opportunity.

The bunk-up came after fugitive Rob made a dramatic entrance in court, where Tracy was entering her plea over the attack on Ken.

He declared that she was innocent and had been with him at the time of her stepdad’s assault.

The convicted killer was prepared to sacrifice his own liberty to save his lover’s.

After the cop went away and checked CCTV, they discovered Rob was telling the truth.

Even though the police warned this wasn’t the end of it, after all, she had been harbouring an escaped convict, Tracy headed down to the cells, where she was allowed 10 minutes alone with Rob.

Viewers scoffed when she leaned in and said:

“I guess it’s gonna be a while, eh, before you have any female company?”

“Yeah, afraid so,” Rob replied.

“How long did that copper say we’ve got?” Tracy questioned.

“About seven minutes, I reckon,” Rob said as she pulled him in for a passionate kiss.

And then they DID IT!!

Viewers were shocked, with some calling the scenes unrealistic. One commented:

“As if they would let Rob, a convicted murderer have 10mins in the cell with Tracy! The most unrealistic scene in history of soap!”

Others also had their say on the social media site:

But some people believe it’s actually setting up a future storyline for Tracy – that she’s going to be pregnant with Rob’s baby.

After all, it’s likely either of them had ‘come prepared’ for that tryst.

These things rarely happen in Soapland without good reason. Will Tracy be giving birth next year to Rob’s child?

And could that mean another stint for Marc Bayliss, who plays the jailbird? He’d surely want to meet his kid, even if it was just from behind bars…
