A slight hitch...
Robert is left dangling from a rope after he tries to hurt Chrissie
till fuming over the fact that Chrissie set his brother Andy up, Robert hits upon an idea when he overhears Priya threatening to sue her over faulty equipment at the adventure park. He decides to sabotage it himself, not realising that he’ll be the one in danger.
Robert challenges Chrissie to be the first person to try out the new climbing wall and his ex-wife rises to the bait. However, Robert then overhears that his sister Victoria
Splans to take her place, so he has to rush back and undo the damage. ‘It’s typical Robert. He acts first and thinks later,’ says Ryan Hawley, who plays him. ‘When he finds out that Victoria is going on the wall, he has to abort his plan to smear the Whites in front of the press, who are coming to the opening.’
The scheming Sugden has tampered with the bolt on the safety wire, but when he scales the wall to replace it, he trips and gets suspended halfway up.
Adds Ryan: ‘He’s in a predicament. If he can’t get hold of Victoria, he’ll be humiliated, but he could also face criminal charges.’
He manages to call her and, when she shows up, he tells her what Chrissie did, making her as hell-bent as he is on getting revenge.
What will they cook up between them?
