Aaron dumps Alex for Robert!
HE FINALLY REALISES HIS TRUE FEELINGS AS HIS EX GOES OUT ON THE PULL...
Aaron dumps his boyfriend Alex this week – after he grows jealous of ex Robert hitting the town on the hunt for a new man.
Robert’s impromptu night out is organised when Aaron asks Alex to move in with him – on his and Robert’s wedding anniversary of all days. But as upset Robert is dragged out to a gay bar by his sister Victoria, Aaron is hot on his heels, desperate to talk. So will this be the moment Robron finally get back together?
“Aaron sees Robert talking to this good-looking lad – and his true emotions are brought to the surface,” shares Danny Miller, who plays Aaron. “Aaron has been battling his feelings and trying to move on from Robert – but when he finds out Victoria’s taking him to a gay bar, this new level of jealousy opens up, and he just wants to put an end to it. So he goes there to talk to Robert about the possibility of trying again…”
As Alex moves into Mill Cottage, Robert is mortified, and Victoria feels his pain. Even though she instigates his night on the pull, she invites Aaron to the bar as well – after sensing that Aaron is yet to draw a line under his former relationship, despite the big plans with his new beau.
“Part of the reason Aaron asks Alex to move in is the guilt of having very nearly cheated with Robert recently,” explains Danny. “But there’s also a problem with Alex’s boiler, and he’s been in trouble at work, so Aaron is just trying to help him out – as Aaron does! The fact that he and Robert almost kissed means that Aaron has realised things with Robert run deep, and he’s not sure he can see a future with Alex after all.”
So the last thing he expects after arriving at the bar is to bump into Alex, who’s there for a drink with a workmate! However, there’s a bigger shock in store for Aaron when he spots Robert being chatted up by a handsome stranger. The shock of seeing Robert moving on gives Aaron the moment of clarity he needs – and he breaks up with Alex.
“Alex is the only obstacle blocking Aaron’s way back to Robert,” admits Danny. “Realistically, he’s only been trying to make things work with Alex because his mum Chas says it’s such a good idea, and Liv keeps telling
Alex is clever, goodlooking and he won’t cheat on Aaron…”
him that he needs to move on from Robert. She’s very supportive of Alex, too.
“But Aaron feels relieved when he finishes things for good,” continues the actor. “It’s the first time he’s admitted that he misses Robert, and he can’t come up with any more excuses. Alex is a great person – he’s a doctor, he’s clever, he’s good-looking, and he won’t cheat on Aaron. But Aaron’s feelings for Robert are just too strong to ignore!”
Once Alex has left, Aaron finally makes his way over to Robert – but what will his ex make of what Aaron has to say? And can they manage to work things out at last?
“I think they’d be in a healthier place this time,” says Danny. “Robert has matured because of his son Seb – having to man up and be an almost single dad since Rebecca was injured in the crash. And Alex has given Aaron a different outlook, too. It’s all about growing up, and it’s an interesting new concept for them both…”
