Our Tracy Barlow thinks she’s been right clever, sneaking prison visits to Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis) behind her other Robert’s back.

And Rob has been pleased to see Tracy – but only because he’s been using her visits to set her up for a massive fall…

“There’s no way Tracy can tell Robert [Tristan Gemmill] that she’s been to see Rob,” says Kate Ford, who plays terrible Tracy.

“She’s got herself between a rock and a hard place.”





Robert asks Tracy some awkward questions about Rob

 

That’s OK, though, because Rob is going to help her out of her dilemma – and he’s going to take great pleasure in doing it.

As we already know, Rob has suddenly become really sociable, sending out prison visit invites to Tracy and Johnny (Richard Hawley), who’s been told he’s Carla’s (Alison King) father.

And he’s going to send one to Robert, too – and tell him Tracy’s been visiting him.

“Tracy has lied outright and told Rob there’s no one else in her life; it’s just her and Amy,” adds Kate.





Tracy thinks she’s playing a clever game – but Rob is playing her

 

“What Tracy doesn’t know is that Rob knows she’s lying to him. He knows about Robert and he is beyond angry and wants full-blown revenge.”

When Robert finds out about Tracy’s lies, he’s going to want payback, too, we reckon.

He decides he’s going to propose to Tracy at Christmas. But what exactly will that proposal hold?

“Stay tuned this Christmas. It’s going to be mega,” Kate promises.
