Vicky (played by Kerri Quinn) has become more of a prevalent figure on Coronation Street after arriving on the cobbles last year as the feisty mother of reformed troublemaker Tyler Jefferies (Will Barnett). Since the summer, she has became embroiled with Weatherfield love rat Robert Preston (Tristan Gemmill), later falling pregnant with his child as the chef balanced a double-life with the Irish woman. Tensions have burned to a head in recent weeks on the ITV soap as his secrets unravelled, but tonight’s episodes left questions as to whether he could have resorted to murder to get rid of his problems. But could this have been expectant mother’s plan all along to fake her own demise?
The drama all kicked off this evening when Robert’s heavily pregnant mistress turned up at the Bistro just when the chef and his fiancé Michelle Connor (Kym) Marsh were telling their family they were getting hitched the next day.
