Rob gets Tracy but does he really want Michelle?

Rob Donovan is apparently going to be dating Tracy in the near future.  Actor Marc Baylis as much as admits this in an interview with the Radio Times but he also hints that the woman Rob really wants is Michelle.

Rob has had a relationship with Eva since his arrival but, at least on his part, it was definitely just a casual fling. He's also chatted up St. Ella and, while on a business trip with Michelle, admitted he's had a thing for her since they were kids. The Donovans and Connors all grew up together, something we already knew.

So it looks like another "love the one you're with" thing with Tracy Barlow while he's pining for Michelle and another reason for Tracy to get a knot in her face and be jealous of Michelle. As if Michelle having Steve wasn't enough...

Cue Tracy hissing and spitting, Michelle rolling her eyes, Steve gurning and Rob smirking.  *sigh*  I don't think I'm going to enjoy this triangle of dullness over much.

Well that's so many more months of Amy will spend locked away in the Barlow's bedroom. Can't see Rob liking kids. I wonder if the target is Carla. Peter and Carla at the Barlow's dinner table, Rob and Tracy chewing faces between snide remarks. I think he is using Tracy to get at Carla.

Oh please! As if! Why can't R-Tracey and the awful Peter find out they are madly in love and both run away together, two useless characters gone in one hit! Yay!

So praying that Rob kills Tracy in some horrible bloodbath and quickly flees the country/ends up behind bars. Bor-ing.

Oh bleeeeah! Sounds like a re-run of the excruciating Tracy/Ryan fiasco. How original! Let's just hope this 'riveting' storyline culminates with this tedious twosome exiting our screens permamnently.

I assume you mean "to pi$$ Carla off" because Carla is, after all, Rob's big sister.

They really dont know what to do with the character of Tracy apart from her to jump from man to man. More trying to make Steve 'jealous' and thinking she is pregnant and more of Kate Fords appalling am dram acting to look forward to then. Arrgggh

I can't wait for this. Not.

Two pointless characters in a pointless storyline that is as appealing as a holiday to Afghanistan.

There was another article where it said Tracy wants Rob to get her a job at Underworld. Since Rob is no longer there I wonder if this is a ploy so Tracy can spy on Carla, maybe get client information for Rob to undercut her with prospective new clients(since he has done that already). Tracy would be up for that, especially since Michelle works there as well.

They really don't need Rob now that Carla is back. Everyone criticises Michelle Collins for her accent but Marc Baylis's accent is not great either. There's just something about him - he has about as much sex appeal as a plank of wood.
