Actor Marc Baylis who plays Rob Donovan on the soap was originally spotted arriving back on set at the start of the month, bringing up speculation that Rob would be returning to our screens soon, security even went as far as trying to hide him.
It’s now been revealed that Rob will escape from prison and hold ex-girlfriend Tracey Barlow, played by Kate Ford, hostage in a gun point drama.
ITV have not revealed any details themselves and this all comes from pictures of the actors being spotted filming at a remote farm house, with Tracey being being dragged away from the building by armed police.
Rob is currently in prison for the murder of Tina, who he killed in 2014, he later returned in 2015 for a month’s stint.
