Their sexual encounters have had Robron fans up in arms but Emmerdale boss Iain MacLeod has confirmed there’s no romantic future for Robert Sugden and Rebecca White.
Many fans have turned on Rebecca, blaming her for the tension in Robron’s romance, but Iain places the blame firmly at Robert’s door.
He said: “Robert and Rebecca are not going to have any romantic future together. I feel sorry for Rebecca and I might be in the minority there, but if you examine what’s gone on in her life and put aside for a moment that we all love Aaron and think about Rebecca’s story.
“She met Robert some years ago, before he’d met Aaron, fell in love with him, he got her pregnant, forced her into an abortion, he dumped her and married her sister, then he tricked her back to Emmerdale and led her into believing there was hope for them when there wasn’t, got her pregnant again, she tried to move on with her life with Ross and just at the point she was doing that Robert rang her up and seduced her again.
“Objectively speaking Robert’s put her through the mill, badly. I totally get that everyone thinks, and I have, ‘Get away from Aaron’, but if that was my friend or sister I wouldn’t be thinking she’s the baddie, Robert is.
“Hopefully she’ll redeem herself in the coming months and they will see she’s been trampled by Robert a little bit. It’s all a bit tragic. Robert might be the love of her life in her mind but she’s got enough dignity to know that’s never going to happen, she’s not going to go chasing after him and he’s not getting back into bed with her.”
