Robert agrees to try for a baby


Inside Soap - - CONTENTS - Al­li­son Jones

Michelle looks set to make Robert’s dream come true this week, as she agrees to try for a baby. But with Kate still think­ing Robert is plan­ning on hav­ing a child with her, the fella has a big predica­ment on his hands! Will he come clean?

“When Robert first raised the ques­tion of a baby, Michelle pan­icked,” ad­mits Kym Marsh, who plays her. “She didn’t ex­pect it at all, and it’s put a bit of a bar­rier be­tween them. Michelle has since be­come wary of the fact that Robert seems to be keep­ing stuff from her – and given that he has a long his­tory of hid­ing things, she’s wor­ried that he’s ly­ing to her again.”

Michelle’s sus­pi­cions are aroused after Robert claims that he’s se­cured a last-minute spot on a train­ing course, and needs to take time off work. But in­stead he heads to the fer­til­ity clinic to meet Kate – who, with Robert’s help, is de­ter­mined to start a fam­ily with her fi­ancée Rana. So when a light blows at the Bistro, Ryan calls the train­ing col­lege and learns that Robert hasn’t even en­rolled on a course. Michelle is deeply con­cerned by the rev­e­la­tion – and tells Carla that she fears her re­la­tion­ship is hang­ing by a thread.

“This is when Michelle starts to re­think her de­ci­sion about a baby,” shares Kym. “Robert bring­ing up the sub­ject has made her re­alise that, after

the heart­break of los­ing baby Ruairi, she’s not con­sid­ered whether or not she could face get­ting preg­nant again.

“Michelle had writ­ten it off, think­ing it was the worst thing she could do, but now she’s won­der­ing if that’s ac­tu­ally the case,” adds the star. “So she ap­proaches Toyah to dis­cuss the op­tion of coun­selling, and is given a rec­om­men­da­tion for some­one to see…”

Mean­while, Robert’s lies look set to im­plode when he and Kate ar­rive for an­other clinic ap­point­ment, just as Michelle turns up for a ses­sion with her coun­sel­lor! Pan­icked, Robert man­ages to shove

Kate out of Michelle’s sight – though de­spite the fum­bled near-miss, Robert still in­sists to Kate that he wants to carry on with their ar­range­ment! How­ever, there’s no avoid­ing the mas­sive con­se­quences of his ac­tions once Michelle opens up about her

coun­selling and an­nounces that she’ll con­sider try­ing for a baby.

All thought of Kate dis­ap­pears as Robert takes in the news that he’s been wait­ing for – but is it time for the de­luded chef to be hon­est with both the ladies in his life be­fore he ends up with two ba­bies?

“Michelle would be bro­ken if she knew what Robert was up to,” sighs Kym. “He hadn’t given her time to con­sider his idea be­fore rush­ing into this other scheme. After ev­ery­thing she went through with los­ing Ruairi, then Steve hav­ing baby Oliver with Leanne, the last thing Michelle needs is an­other per­son keep­ing se­crets.”

So, will Michelle dis­cover what her other half has been up to – and if so, will she ever for­give him for this be­trayal?

Robert has made a prom­ise to Kate – but will he see it through?
