‘Robert likes to be on the edge,’ says Emmerdale’s Ryan Hawley

Emmerdale’s Ryan Hawley reveals to Soaplife how Robert’s liaisons with Aaron get even more dangerous.

Robert is horrified when Chrissie accuses him of being unfaithful and tells him to sling it… “But, to his relief, it’s not his affair with Aaron she’s discovered,” says Ryan, “it’s pornography on his laptop. Chrissie assumes the porn is Robert’s, but he’s not the only person in the house who might use that laptop.”

What does Chrissie do?

“She orders him to pack his bags, saying that she doesn’t want to be near him and that in her mind she knows that he has been unfaithful. She has seen porn on the laptop and thinks that Robert has arranged to meet a woman he met online.”

How does Robert get back into Chrissie’s good books?

“He has a word with Lachlan [Thomas Atkinson] and you see that paternal, stepdad side of him. Chrissie [Louise Marwood] is really grateful as she’s having a lot of difficulty being a single mum to a troublesome son.”

Then Robert risks a date with Aaron (Danny Miller)!

“Yes, but Robert likes to be on the edge and keep things exciting.”

Does Robert have any idea that Katie and Chrissie follow him to the hotel?

“No, but he looks out of the window and sees them. He then has to think on his feet to find away out of getting caught. Afterwards, Robert warns Katie to stop meddling in his affairs.”

We know Sammy Winward is leaving – has Robert got anything to do with Katie’s exit?

“You’ll have to wait and see! Robert is wary of Katie, but he thinks he will always have the upper hand and is confident she is not going to find out the truth.”
