Devastating scenes will now see Robert’s husband Aaron beside himself with grief over their desolate future.

In scenes that will have Robron fans sobbing, Robert and Aaron’s future will lay in the judge and jury’s hands…

Will Robert plead guilty? Or will Aaron’s plan to stop him going to prison work?

With actor Ryan Hawley definitely leaving, we know he’ll soon be exiting the soap – but will he be going to prison or do Emmerdale scriptwriters have another trick up their sleeves?


Fans have been left sobbing by the storyline, with one tweeting: “Oh Robert and Aaron, I’m a blubbering wreck.”

Next week is a massive week of drama on Emmerdale, as not only is Robert in court, but Cain seeks revenge after finding out about wife Moira’s affair with farmhand Nate.

This results in a confrontation and explosion on a sailing boat in the middle of a lake.

Back in the village, Chas goes into labour in the Woolpack toilets.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
