Talking about joining the Channel 4 soap, Robert said “I’m over the moon to be given this opportunity. 

“I couldn’t really feel more at home, especially having started my career here with Brookside.

“Everyone has been so welcoming, including many old faces who were around in my Brookie days.

Working with Denise and Nikki is great – I know them both and they’ve really helped me settle in.”
