ROBERT Preston’s complicated situation in Coronation Street is about to get even MORE complicated when pregnant lover Vicky Jefferies finds Michelle Connor’s engagement ring and assumes it’s for her on tonight's episode.
The two-timing chef has the sparkler on him because Michelle – who is blissfully preparing their wedding while Robert leads a secret double life – asks him to get her ring resized while he’s out.
Coronation Street viewers will see a stressed Robert heading to see Vicky after getting a call from her teen son Tyler, who tells him they’re leaving for Ireland with Vicky’s ex, Jed.
Vicky is furious when Robert arrives at her place and tells him she refuses to be his dirty secret any longer.
But when Robert leaves, she finds something that makes her change her mind – Michelle’s ring.
How will Robert explain the ring to Vicky, who thinks it’s for her? And how will he explain the missing jewel to Michelle?
What a pickle the Bistro owner has got himself into.
Corrie fans know that Tristan Gemmill – who plays rotten Robert – and Kym Marsh – playing loved-up Michelle – are both due to leave the ITV soap in the coming months.
The Sun exclusively revealed back in February that Kym was quitting the role she’s played for the past 13 years on the iconic cobbles.
Kym, 43, told The Sun: “When I was lucky enough to be offered four episodes I could never in my wildest dreams have thought I’d be here 13 years later.
“It’s been an incredibly difficult decision but it feels like the right time for me to explore some other roles.”
It was also revealed in May that Michelle would flee Weatherfield for good after Robert’s baby lies and fling with Vicky are finally out in the open.
A TV source said at the time: “This fling takes place while Michelle and Robert temporarily split up, then when they’re reunited they decide to have a secret wedding, by inviting guests on the premise it’s for his 50th birthday.
“But Vicky reveals she is pregnant with his baby, which poses a real dilemma for him as he has always wanted to be a father.
"That leaves him with a huge decision over whether he stays with Michelle, the woman he loves but who doesn’t want a baby, or leaves her to guarantee a new life as a father?
"Either way, it results in Michelle leaving the cobbles for good — but not before the inevitable whirlwind of drama has played out.”
At the moment Robert seems to think he can have his cake and eat it, but it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out.
And with Michelle and Robert’s wedding day fast approaching, it’s sure to be explosive.
