He recently told Daily Mail Australia that working with a baby on-set has helped prepare him for fatherhood.

"It's been really great training, I've had daily baby classes, it's been great," he told the publication.

"I've had a crash course for the last eight weeks, it's like baby school university."

On screen in Australia, Robbo's friend Tori has just given birth to their baby who was conceived via IVF.

Things took a turn though when moments after having their daughter, Tori collapsed.

She's set to be rushed to hospital where she will fight for her life.

Meanwhile, Robbo has finally had his tormenters arrested after weeks of stalking and blackmail.

Tori ended up having to give birth in a safehouse after her life and that of their unborn baby was threatened by the men who wanted Robbo to give up where Dylan Carter was hiding.

Despite Robbo insisting Dylan was dead, they didn't believe him and he was brutally assaulted in an attempt to extract information from him.

Last month, Jake unveiled a new look on Instagram.

Sharing an image of his completely bald head, Jake revealed he's still kept his beard and moustache, and captioned the snap with the hashtag: "#baldisbetter."
