Coronation Street star Marc Baylis has revealed that his character, Rob Donovan, is about to be given a second chance at working at the factory by his sister Carla, however, as Rob sees himself in a position that’s somewhat higher than being Carla’s whipping boy, whether he’ll accept, or continue trying to ruin Carla’s business, remains to be seen.
As fans will recall, Rob cooked the books at the factory in order to have a broker assess the worth of the business at far less than its real market value, and he then nicked one of Carla’s (Alison King) clients, taking a hefty order from her in the process.
During an interview with Soaplife about the storyline, Marc began by explaining how his character felt when Carla turned up in Weatherfield again after originally leaving to live in America.
He said, “Carla’s arrival [was] a shock more than anything because only a couple of weeks previously she announced she was leaving Weatherfield again for good.” Read more & comment »

Steve (Simon Gregson) is of course dating Michelle Connor (Kym Lomas) and Eva (Catherine Tyldesley) is about to be reunited with Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis) and though she’s lost a lover before to jealous suspicion – that lover being Nick Tilsley (Ben Price) who ditched Eva after she wrongly accused him of cheating on her – Eva’s evidently not learned any lessons.

Speaking to the Sun’s TV Biz, Marc said, “I told my nan about a year ago that I would get a part in Corrie.
