CORONATION STREET viewers have been left to play detective after star Vicky Jeffries went missing last week moments after crashing Michelle Connor and Robert Preston’s pre-wedding celebrations, after months of trying to hide her affair with the Weatherfield love rat, but now she’s gone missing and viewers are convinced they know where she is.
Last week saw Robert Preston (played by Tristan Gemmill) humiliated after Michelle Connor (Kym Marsh) exposed his sordid affair with Vicky Jeffries (Kerri Quinn), interrupting their wedding to read out texts he had sent to Vicky in front of their family and friends. But Vicky has been missing ever since and police have now found Vicky’s blood on a vase, leading them to believe that Robert has killed the mother of his child.
In a one-hour episode last night, Robert was left in hot water as the police came snooping, asking questions about the disappearance of Vicky.
It’s not been an easy ride for any of them, Robert and Vicky started their secret romance months ago as Robert continued seeing Michelle and even proposing.
It all kicked off though when Michelle found out about the lies and the sordid love affair and Robert swore blind that he would never see Vicky again, whilst continuing the affair.
But Michelle couldn’t be fooled forever and chose to humiliate Robert in the most dramatic way, at the altar of their wedding.
Standing at the altar Michelle told their friends and family: “This, in case any of you were wondering, these are messages from Robert’s lover, sorry finance Vicky.
“She very kindly sent me these messages to rub my nose in it so you might have seen her on the street seven months pregnant with his kid.”
But now pregnant Vicky is missing and people are starting to ask questions.
Not only this, but Vicky’s neighbour heard screaming coming from the pregnant woman’s house after Robert told Michelle he would “deal with it”.
Where is Vicky though, and is Robert responsible or is something else going on?
Last night, Robert was arrested on suspicion of assault at the Rovers Return, but he thinks he’s already got his story straight.
At the station, he told police officers that the last time he saw Vicky they exchanged a few nasty words, resulting in Vicky throwing a vase at the wall.
If Robert did kill Vicky, he obviously didn’t check the crime scene before leaving, as a bloody shard of vase has been found in his van.
Robert looked horrified, but has he been caught or is he being set up? Viewers were quick to post their conspiracy theories on Twitter.
One said: “@itvcorrie I think Michelle and Vicky have set Robert up between them……think vickys fine and they’re taking revenge by getting him locked up and losing everything #corrie.”
“They’ve all set you up Robert lad, never cross a woman….nevermind 2 #corrie.” another advised.
Another said: “Wow Michelle and Vicky are really going to stitch Robert up with attempted murder #corrie.”
“I still think Michelle and that Vicky are in it together. Setting up Robert #Corrie.” said another concerned fan.
So it seems there are many theories floating around, and with Kym Marsh’s character set to leave the cobbles this Christmas, what lies in store of Robert and Michelle’s relationship and have Vicky and Michelle come together to get rid of the love-rat forever?
In upcoming scenes, Michelle is seen desperately trying to sell the Bistro behind Robert’s back as her last act of revenge.
But, a very unfriendly face buys the restaurant leaving Michelle with a bitter taste in her mouth.
