Robert is engaged to Michelle and Vicky!

Viewers of Coronation Street have questioned how 'thick' Michelle Connor hasn't figured out fiancé Robert Preston's secret.

Vicky's ex came into the Bistro and introduced himself to Michelle as someone who works with Robert in the young offender unit.

However, Jed was there to try and get some cash out of Robert and told him he would tell Michelle the truth about Vicky and the baby if Robert didn't give him five grand.

Not having the money, Robert managed to make a deal with Jed saying he could give him £2000 for Michelle's ring back and Jed accepted - as long as Robert convinced Tyler to go back to Ireland with Jed.

Of course Michelle was left confused by the missing £2000 from the Bistro safe.

Robert ended up dropping himself in it telling Michelle he bought her another ring, but then telling Craig that he had acutally found the original ring.

Later, Michelle and Craig ended up discussing the ring and Michelle started to become suspicious as to why Robert told them completely different stories.

Michelle must be rather dim, not to have sussed Robert by now!!!

Viewers were left questioning how 'thick' Michelle hasn't figured out Robert is leading a double life.

Viewers know that Robert is currently engaged to both Michelle and Vicky.

Shortly after Robert split up with Vicky, he proposed to Michelle. But moments before he proposed to Michelle, Vicky's teenage son Tyler revealed that she was pregnant.

To keep up the lies, Robert told Michelle he had a new job working in the kitchens of a young offenders and told Vicky he didn't want to announce her pregnancy because it may upset Michelle.

Michelle and Robert originally split up because he wanted children and she didn't want anymore after the loss of her son Rauri.
