Emmerdale viewers have predicted a new death twist for Robert Sugden, after learning of Aaron Dingle’s plans to break him out of prison.
In the latest episode, Robron fans were left with mixed emotions as Aaron asked a mystery character for help in getting Robert out of jail.
Robert was charged with the murder of Lee Posner, who raped his sister Victoria earlier this year.
The two men clashed last month and Robert punched Lee leaving him hospitalised, with him later dying from his injuries.
Aaron and Robert went on the run, but after a few near-misses with the police Robert decided to sacrifice himself and handed himself into the cops.
But as Aaron’s next plan was revealed, amid Robert actor Ryan Hawley’s exit from the ITV soap, fans were left concerned.
Viewers predicted that it could all go very wrong, and may even result in the much dreaded death of the fan favourite.
Taking to Twitter , one fan said: “If Robert ends up dying I’m- please no I know I said i’d be fine with it but him getting arrested was too sad I didn’t know it was going to be that sad now if he dies it’s going to be 1000 times worse.”
Another tweeted: “Hate the fear of Robert getting killed off is creeping back in :(.”
A third agreed: “Aaron breaking Robert out of prison just like cain did to Aaron is only going to end in disaster. I just hope it don’t get Robert killed.”
This was echoed by a fourth fan who said: “Why do I feel Rob is going to die.”
It comes after Robert was told he would have to wait to find out his sentence at his plea hearing, while he was advised to plead guilty.
Aaron was left devastated by the news, not wanting to lose his husband – leading to his shocking plan.
Robert confessed he didn’t want to drag his partner on the run and ruin his life, while he couldn’t hide away from what he had done.
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
