Emmerdale is planning on giving Robron fans a Christmas treat this festive season with an episode dedicated to the two characters.
Terrified by what is happening to him, Robert, played by Ryan Hawley, is pushed to his limits as he continually wakes on Christmas morning to a different reality.
Why can’t he escape from this perpetual nightmare and how will his estrangement from the real love of his life, Aaron, played by Danny Miller, manifest itself?
“Think ‘Groundhog Day’, and ‘A Christmas Carol’ with a little nod to the film ‘Don’t Look Now’ thrown in and that’s been our approach to the Christmas Day episode,” said Series Producer, Iain MacLeod.
“It’s been amazing to produce as we’re constantly thinking of ways to push the boundaries of storytelling and keep Emmerdale fresh and our loyal viewers on their toes!
“We’ve all acknowledged the risks of filming such a stand alone episode, but we sincerely hope the audience will appreciate we’ve tried to do something a bit different in the same way we devoted an episode to Ashley’s story last Christmas.
“Apart from the scary aspect to Robert’s situation, the episode is also heartfelt and hilarious in parts. Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a healthy dose of the Dingles and a comedy cameo which we hope will please our viewers.
“Watch out for the ghost of Christmas Future as you might recognise them!”
