Emmerdale: is Robert Sugden returning after Luke’s confession?

Luke told his mother that his brother Lee beat him up after finding out he was dating a man.

He told his mother about the terrible moment when Lee grabbed his throat and punched him in the stomach. Luke eventually pushed his brother, causing him to fall and bang his head on the step.

Lee passed out but soon woke up and tried again to attack Luke.

Before leaving, he threatened to come back with his friends and beat up Luke.

In a shocking twist, Luke revealed that the next time he saw Lee he was in the hospital for life support, meaning that Luke and Lee’s fight took place just hours before Robert met Lee.

Wendy was horrified and realized that Robert could hit Lee, was not the reason for his death.

Luke admitted that he cut things off with Stephen to protect him.

Luke told Wendy to keep his secret or she’d lose him too.

But what does that mean for Robert? Is there any chance he could return?

While it was not revealed whether Ryan Hawley will return to the role, there is always a chance in the Soap Country that any character can return … even if they are occasionally dead.

What happened between Robert and Lee?

In 2019, Victoria was raped by Lee Posner after one night and later discovered she was pregnant with his child.

Lee denied raping Victoria, and he and Wendy accused Victoria of being a liar.
