Spoilers for next week's episodes have revealed that Robert will put a moratorium on receiving any visitors, which devastates Victoria Barton (Isabel Hodgins).

Robert was handed a life sentence after his attack on Lee resulted in the rapist passing away in hospital.

Producer Kate Brooks recently hinted at what's next for Aaron following Robert's exit.

"Robert leaving is going to hit him hard," she said. "He is the love of Aaron's life whom he adored, and has kept Aaron anchored and on the straight and narrow.

"So when the rug is pulled from underneath his feet, it really affects Aaron and it makes him behave in ways that he wouldn't normally.

"I think we're going to see the Aaron of old, before Robert came along and straightened him out."

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
