Coronation Street's Robert to be left fighting for his life in dramatic new storyline
Coronation Street's Robert Preston is set to be left fighting for his life after a horror car crash later this autumn.
An insider told The Sun that the restauranteur crashes into a lorry after speeding in fiancée Michelle's car.
The crash will leave both Michelle and Robert's secret fiancée, Vicky, rushing to the hospital to see him - and the explosive scenes could see his double life exposed.
"He’ll be rushed to hospital after the horror crash but that’s just the beginning of his problems.
"Both his fiancées Michelle and Vicky will be terrified when they hear of what’s happened and head to the hospital to be with him."
For the last few months, Robert has been trying to keep the two women from finding out about each other.
The restauranteur has been desperate to keep his relationship with Michelle, as well as his baby with Vicky.
But it looks like there's going to be a whole lot of drama in store as Robert's crash may be the thing that finally gets them all in the same room.
The source continued:
"If they come face to face Robert’s lies could be exposed and his whole life will fall apart.
"They’ll want to kill him - but he’ll have to survive catastrophic injuries first."
Tristan Gemmill, who plays Robert Preston, announced in April this year that he would be exiting the ITV soap. You can read more about that here.
