Emmerdale: Robert and Aaron’s wedding will be “heartbreaking”, says soap boss

Fans can expect to see the #Robron nuptials in 2017


Fans of Robert and Aaron’s relationship on Emmerdale have certainly been put through the emotional wringer this week – but it looks as though the pair of them are going to survive the multi-car pile-up that ended up claiming the life of James Barton.


Yes, Aaron may have given his loved ones further cause for concern during the closing minutes of tonight’s episode when he appeared to once again slip into unconsciousness. But we now know for sure that he lives, what with him being among the mourners at James Barton’s funeral.

And we can now reveal that the soap is soon set to film Robert and Aaron’s wedding – news that is sure to gladden the hearts of those who thrilled to the sight of the two of them getting engaged in scenes just broadcast on ITV.

Speaking about the upcoming nuptials, producer Iain MacLeod said: “I’ve read the script already and it’s really heartbreaking.

“It is big emotionally, in keeping with their characters – I don’t think anybody is expecting dancing girls and show tunes, so it is quite raw and honest. And it has got a healthy dose of sort of Dingle craziness at the heart of it that threatens to derail things. It is huge emotional territory and I hope people will like it when it airs next year.”

And actor Danny Miller added: “Iain’s right in that it would be against the characters if it was too big. So it won’t be a big pink stereotypical wedding. I’m hoping they keep it more like a Dingle-type celebration.”

Well, after a week as traumatic as this on Emmerdale, at least that’s something to look forward to! Robron fans, rejoice!
