But while Robert was putting together his speech for the big day, Michelle was secretly planning to sabotage their wedding day and just at the moment she was due to say ‘I do’ at the altar she outed Robert’s cheating ways by reading out his messages to and from his pregnant fiancée, Vicky Jefferies.

Since she exposed his true colours, Robert has been totally broken and Michelle has been left devastated that the man she thought she would spend the rest of her life with turned out to be just like the rest of the men she has dated.

Having taken Robert’s beloved Bistro from him, Michelle makes her final plans to leave Weatherfield this Christmas and puts her affairs in place.
