Rob will set the cat amongst the pigeons once more on Coronation Street when he starts calling the shots from his prison cell!
As this exclusive picture shows, Marc Baylis will reprise his role as murderer Rob Donovan from Friday 4th December when viewers will see him in prison.
Rob will send a number of visiting orders to some of our favourite Weatherfield residents, a year after he got sent down for Tina McIntyre’s, murder after being arrested on his wedding day to Tracy Barlow.
Rob’s reappearance spells trouble and it soon becomes clear that he holds the key to a huge Connor family secret, one that he could use to his advantage.
Marc Baylis said:
“Rob’s had a lot of time to think about things over the last year and ponder why he ended up where he is. He’s got a sternness to him, he’s a bit colder than he was before.
"Rob’s of the attitude that if he’s having it so hard for the foreseeable future then why should everyone else have it so easy. He feels that he’s been hard done by and he just wants a little bit of payback.”
What is Rob’s end game and could it throw a spanner in the works for Tracy and Robert’s relationship?
