Robert planned to leave the street following his release after it was revealed Vicky was alive but tragedy has struck as Gary’s nemesis Derek got his hands on a gun.

Derek got his hands on the gun left in Gary’s shop and burst into the pub where, unable to get a drink, he started waving it around.

Steve pushed Emma into the men’s toilets for safety where Gary was roughing up Ali. When Gary finally emerged it all kicked off with the loan-shark taking on the gunman taunting his lack of power.

That was until Derek turned around and put a bullet through the door.

Unbeknown to Derek and the drinkers inside the stray bullet had hit Robert who was returning to the pub with a present he had to wrap.

Have Derek’s actions cost Robert his life?
