Emmerdale's Robron fans might want to look away now, because it looks like Robert Sugden and Aaron Dingle might break up if the former is sentenced to life in prison.

Actor Danny Miller has suggested that it would be the "end of the relationship" if Robert was sent down for life.

Next week, Robert finally tells Aaron the truth about his prison sentence, leaving him heartbroken.

Lee was left in a coma after Robert, played by Ryan Hawley, whacked him over the head, claiming that he was attacked first and he acted in self-defence. However Lee has since woken up and is disputing his version of events.

Robert's lawyer has warned that the police are looking to charge him with GBH with intent, which carries a life sentence.

However Robert's family, including Aaron (Danny Miller), are unaware of this and he has been secretly despairing.

Next week, Cain overhears Robert's conversation with his solicitor and later tells him that he won't lie to Aaron about his possible sentence.

Before he has the chance to tell Aaron, Liv has a seizure in the café and is rushed to hospital.

"Robert's been put in a situation where he has to tell Aaron and be honest with him," actor Ryan Hawley explains. "And then what happens is Liv has this seizure and it kind of gets in the way but eventually Robert does confess to Aaron and Aaron's obviously heartbroken and devastated by the fact that he hasn't told him."

Asked what Aaron's reaction is like to the news, actor Danny Miller says: "Obviously it's like the same old story with Aaron, I think he's constantly trying to. I think since he came to the village and how he's developed and become the honest one and rashest one and I think he's tried to change his views and came to terms with what happened with his dad when he was a child.

"I think then he wanted to have this honest relationship and this honest life and being as honest as you can with your nearest and dearest and he constantly argues with Robert about that so when he eventually tells Aaron what happened, I think he actually says 'I'm not even angry, I'm just tired'."

He adds: "Originally he says it's GBH and then he says it's GBH with intent, which carries a sentence of life whereas GBH you can get maybe five or six years and he's thinking, 'He'll be out in two, it'll be alright. We can work it out.'

"A life sentence or whatever would be awful. Well, it's a life sentence so it would be the end of the relationship so it's not great is it? So yeah, I think he's battling with that idea straight away as well that, if that happens and he was found guilty, that's his life ripped apart and Liv's and Seb's as well. Diane and Victoria as well.

"So he's obviously naturally gutted and I think fed up of his lies at that minute."

Is this the end for Robert and Aaron?
