Corrie's Robert Preston to get testicular cancer

Share article:

Coronation Street's Robert Preston will be diagnosed with testicular cancer.

The bistro manager - portrayed by Tristan Gemmill - is currently behind bars for attacking his old friend Richard "Rich" Collis (Fraser Ayres), but things are set to go from bad to worse for the hunk this autumn as he will get a shocking diagnosis.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "This is going to be a big storyline for Robert which is likely to have "Coronation Street" fans hooked for weeks."

The forthcoming scenes will see Robert's girlfriend Michelle McDonald (Kym Marsh) encourage him to undergo life-saving surgery by having his testicle removed but, although she thinks she's supporting him, the testing time may drive them apart.

The soap insider explained to the publication: "It will really test his relationship with Michelle as she tries to offer him support in his darkest hour. But the big question is whether he's willing to accept her help and save himself."

thinks her last 12 months on "Coronation Street" have been the "best" she's ever had.

She said recently: "It's been great. I've been giving some great opportunities.

"This is my best twelve months on "Coronation Street". Michelle has no clue (of who her stalker is). He's now dating Maria. Imagine how shocked she's going to be."
