Kym Marsh hints at how Michelle would react if she ever found out about Robert's baby plans...
How has Michelle been feeling since Robert raised the issue of having a baby?
It really surprised Michelle when he said it and she panicked, she didn’t expect it at all as it wasn't something they had ever really spoken about. It has also put a bit of a barrier between them because he has clearly thought about it and realised it is something he wants and she just hadn’t even considered it being an option for them.
What are her main fears when she realises Robert's lying to her?
She is wary that Robert is keeping stuff from her again, he has such a past history of doing that and she had thought they’d resolved those issues. And, because they are at odds over the whole baby thing she is really worried about the fact that she knows he has lied to her about where he has been.
What prompts Michelle to look into counselling and her decision to have a baby?
She has started to think about it, promoted by Robert bringing up the subject and she realises she has never really gone there in her own head and considered whether or not she could face getting pregnant again. She had written it off thinking it was the worse thing she could do but now, after advice from Toyah, she is wondering if that is actually the case.
How does Robert react to Michelle's change of heart?
It is Robert’s turn to be completely thrown, obviously thinking that Michelle was adamant about not having another baby he had started to go down a different route with Kate and Rana. Now he knows he will have to let them down to pursue his dream of a baby with Michelle.
How would she cope if she found out Robert’s been baby plotting with Kate?
She would be devastated, he hadn't even given her time to really consider his idea before he rushed into another plan, which is really doomed to fail and he didn’t even consider discussing it with her first. After everything she went through losing her baby, then finding out about Steve and Leanne and Oliver, the last thing she needs is someone else keeping secrets from her about babies.
What do you make of Robert going behind Michelle’s back in this way?
After everything she went through losing her baby, then finding out about Steve and Leanne and Oliver, the last thing she needs is someone else keeping secrets from her about babies. She had put him first by going to talk to someone about the idea and meanwhile he was off planning to have a baby with someone else!
