On the dramatic double bill of Emmerdale, Robert Sugden – played by Ryan Hawley – and Aaron Dingle – played by Danny Miller – finally put an end to their marriage.

Aaron has had a traumatic year on the soap after he was sent to prison, suffered a harrowing homophobic bullying ordeal by his fellow inmates and then discovered that the love of his life, Robert, had cheated on him with former lover Rebecca White while he was behind bars.

Robert and Rebecca’s sordid tryst resulted in the character becoming pregnant, and although Aaron has tried to come to terms over the betrayal and even be supportive of the unborn baby, the pregnancy has taken its toll on the character.

On Tuesday’s emotional episode, it was revealed that Aaron had been self-harming as a result of the news and even considered taking drugs again while on Wednesday Robert discovered his husband’s wounds on his torso and his struggles with the pregnancy.

However, the beloved soap couple – otherwise known as Robron – took a turn for the worse on Thursday’s double bill after the couple split up.

Earlier on in the episode, the couple were all set to leave the village for a while, but Aaron became enraged when he discovered a baby scan photo in Robert’s pocket.

The character ended up attacking his husband in the street over the picture and then nearly collapsing from his self-harm wounds in The Woolpack.

However, at the end of the episode, Aaron decided to call it a day with Robert as he continued to struggle with his unborn child.

He said: “I can’t keep doing this. I threatened a pregnant woman today yesterday I basically said I’d be glad if she lost the baby – it’s sick. None of us need this. None of this is worth it.”

While later on he admitted: “I do love you, I’ll always love you but this I hate. If it carries on for long enough it’s going to end up killing me.”

Aaron then took off his wedding ring and handed it back to Robert before kissing him on the cheek.

As Robert looked on in tears, Aaron said: “I think you should probably go now, please, Robert just go.”

Viewers were left distraught over the scenes and even threatened to stop watching the soap over the end of their favourite couple.

One person said: “I’ll switch back on when #Robron & #Coira are sorted.”

A different account put: “#Emmerdale you’ve just broken my f**king heart ! Why have you done this ? Poor Robron! Might stop watching now might have to……..”

While another user added: “Goodbye #Emmerdale. We’ll see each other again when this mess is fixed. #Robron.”

However, not all soap watchers felt the same and some viewers thought it was the best thing for the couple.

One person said: “I honestly do think Aaron is better without Robert. They’ve become so toxic  #Emmerdale.”

While a different account put: “Aaron and Robert’s relationship seem to have more downs than ups to be honest #Emmerdale.”
