CORONATION Street’s Robert Preston will be left fighting for his life in a dramatic plot this autumn.
The two-timing restaurateur – who is played by actor Tristan Gemmill in the ITV soap – will be involved in a horrifying car crash with a lorry which will see both fiancee Michelle Connor and secret fiancee pregnant Vicky rush to the hospital to see him.
It could lead to the most explosive scenes for the soap later this year.
A source exclusively told The Sun Online: “Robert’s speeding in Michelle’s car when he crashes into a lorry.
“He’ll be rushed to hospital after the horror crash but that’s just the beginning of his problems.
“Both his fiancées Michelle and Vicky will be terrified when they hear of what’s happened and head to the hospital to be with him.”

But after a series of near-misses the accident could be the thing that puts them in the same room together.
The insider added: “If they come face to face Robert’s lies could be exposed and his whole life will fall apart.
“They’ll want to kill him – but he’ll have to survive catastrophic injuries first.”
