Emmerdale viewers were left feeling anxious after Thursday’s episode when they discovered fan favourites Robert Sugden and Aaron Dingle could be split up by an unplanned pregnancy.

Will Robert be Rebecca’s baby’s dad? (ITV)


Viewers of the ITV soap know Robert (Ryan Hawley) may be the father as he cheated on husband Aaron (Danny Miller) while he was locked up with ex Rebecca.

However, Ross Barton (Michael Parr) could also be the baby’s father and when he learns about Robert’s guilty secret, he will start to blackmail the cheater.

Fans of the series, who dub the couple #RobRon, voiced their disappointment at the storyline.


Aaron suffered a mental breakdown over bullying in prison and some viewers complained they would like to see it explored further.


Fans pleaded with producers to give the couple a break.
