Talking about joining Channel 4 Soap, Robert said, “I am overjoyed to have this opportunity. I couldn’t really feel at home anymore, especially after starting my career here at Brookside.

Robert also teased what fans can expect from Fergus: “Fergus is a lovely character … he’s sassy, but he’s a man you really don’t want as an enemy, and to be honest … you’d probably have to be pretty careful if he was your friend … “
