A supply reportedly told the publication: “Derek gets drunk and begins waving a gun about the pub.
“There’s a tense stand-off then a enormous fight among the two males and two persons are shot, which includes Robert who dies on Christmas Day.
“He tends to make it to hospital, but suffers a heart attack and dies off screen. It is left to Michelle to inform every person that he is dead.”
It is no shock that Tristan Gemmill, who plays doomed Robert in the soap, is departing the cobbles just after announcing his exit earlier this year, and his on-screen companion Kym Marsh, who plays Michelle Connor, is also bowing out of the soap.
Fortunately for Michelle it appears she is set to survive the Rovers’ shooting as it has been revealed the door has been left open for Kym to return to her function in the future.
With Robert’s demise major the way for Michelle’s exit, it appears like there is lots of drama heading to Weatherfield this festive season.
But what about the second particular person rumoured to be shot? Will they meet a grisly finish as effectively?
