Since his time on "Hollyoaks", soap star Rob landed the role of PC Martin in ITV drama series "Brief Encounters" in 2016 alongside the likes of Sophie Rundle and Angela Griffin, and he also has his own restaurant, Muse, in Oldham, north west England.

"My family helped me with taking Muse cocktail bar on. It was an existing business. Then the building at the side, which had been a real eyesore, came up for sale. It was a no brainer for me."
