Emmerdale fans were in bits over Robert Sugden's last episode

Emmerdale fans were left in bits last night as Robert Sugden's final episode aired.

Ryan Hawley has played Robert Sugden on the ITV soap for five years. However, earlier this year, he announced he is leaving the 'dales to try new things.

And in heartbreaking scenes that played out on Thursday night, Robert was told he was going to be transferred to a prison on the Isle of Wight - and that he didn't have any say in the matter.

His husband, Aaron Dingle, paid him a visit in prison - and the two of them had a heart-to-heart, although Robert was unable to tell him the truth.

Scenes set to play out next week [via The Sun] will see Aaron find out Robert has banned him from visiting him in prison - which means this is the last time Robert will be seen on-screen.

And given fans' love for RobRon, they were understandably devastated to see the couple be torn apart.
