Emmerdale has tonight dashed hopes of Aaron reuniting with Robert following their bust-up earlier this week.
Instead, Aaron (Danny Miller) was seen leaving the village on his own for a recuperative trip to Dublin to see Chas and Liv.
And when Robert (Ryan Hawley) raised the prospect of following on the day after, Aaron was quick to shut him down, saying that he needed to fix himself without interference from his former partner.
Aaron’s departure came at the climax of a tumultuous week for #Robron fans who’ve seen their beloved couple split up following a furious fight.
The crux of their fall-out has, of course, been Aaron’s distress at the prospect of pregnant Rebecca expecting Robert’s child – a state of affairs that has led to Aaron once again turning to self harming.
RadioTimes.com can reveal that Aaron’s departure isn’t permanent and that he will be back in the village at some point, although fans will have to wait and see how long the character will be away.
