However, after Aaron broke down earlier this week and had a heart-to-heart with Cain Dingle - not to mention the shock of sister Liv having another seizure - it seemed Aason was in a better place.

While it could be argued that technically Aaron isn't cheating on Robert seeing as he has ended their relationship since going to prison, but fans were still heartbroken that Aaron would sleep with someone else so soon after losing Robert.

And it was clear that the bid to move forward didn't work for Aaron either, because later he couldn't have been more desperate for the stranger to leave his house.

After getting nasty in a bid to make the mystery man leave, Aaron then broken down once he was alone, clearly a broken man over what had happened and hating himself more than ever.
