Fans of Robert and Aaron’s relationship take note – the pair will get close again next week, but it’s not under the best of circumstances.
The Emmerdale episode to be shown on Tuesday 19 January sees Aaron planning to leave the village after he fails to convince Chas to end her relationship with Gordon.
But after packing his bags, Aaron is stopped in his tracks by Robert, who soon realises that his on-off lover is self harming when he collapses from sepsis.
Aaron is rushed to hospital suffering with a bad infection, but manages to whisper something in Robert’s ear that leaves him shocked and concerned.
By Thursday, Robert is left even more surprised when Aaron leaves the hospital without being officially discharged. But a determined Robert tacks him down and Aaron eventually reveals a secret from his past.
Emmerdale bosses are remaining tight lipped as to what is that Aaron has been concealing, but Robert will be seen urging him to open up to his mum. But when he refuses, Robert agrees not to tell anyone while promising Aaron that he’s not alone.
So will the long-buried issue end up bringing Robert and Aaron close again?
