Spoilers: Emmerdale reveals Robert Sugden's sad exit scenes

This is the sombre moment which sees the end of the line for Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) as he takes the stand in court and awaits sentencing after handing himself in over the death of Lee Posner.

Robert had initially opted to go on the run with his husband Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) but after witnessing everything that the man he loved would be giving up, Robert realised that he couldn’t let him live a life like that on his behalf and made the ultimate sacrifice.

Aaron was devastated as Robert handed himself in and he is present in court with his head in his hands as Robert makes his court appearance in what are some of Ryan’s final scenes in the soap.

It remains to be seen what sentence is handed down to Robert and whether attempting to go on the run will have made things worse for him but it seems inevitable that he will be going to prison. Will he and Aaron stay together – or will Robert encourage Aaron to walk away and live his life, particularly is it’s a desperately long jail time?

Robert’s exit forms part of a huge week for the soap which also sees Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) take a violent revenge on Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) for his affair with Moira (Natalie J Robb). As a deadly fight to the death breaks out, Moira ends up plunging into the lake while the boat which is the arena for the scrap explodes.

Elsewhere, back in the village, Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) will go into labour while trapped in the toilets with Marlon (Mark Charnock). Will Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) make it to the arrival of his child on time?

Producer Kate Brooks recently confirmed that Robert’s exit would see Aaron return to some of his old ways, indicating that there will be times of high drama ahead for the character as he faces up to the loss of his soulmate.

She teased: ‘Robert leaving is going to hit him hard. 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. We have loads of great stuff for Danny and Isobel, as they try to navigate their world without Robert in it.’
