    Robert Preston

    Tracy Barlow's ex-husband will make a return to Coronation Street this summer.

    Robert Preston - who hasn't been seen in Weatherfield since New Year's Day 2003 - will sleep with Tracy (Kate Ford) on his return.

    However, it will soon become evident that he isn't a single man when his wife - played by Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding - joins him on the cobbles.

    An actor has yet to be cast in the role, but The Sun reports that producers are looking for someone around the age of 35.

    Harding's role on the ITV soap was announced last week. Her character - who has yet to be named - will appear in four episodes, with the potential to be brought back for further episodes.

    Tracy and Robert married in 1996, before divorcing six years later.

    In recent episodes of Coronation Street, Tracy has called time on her affair with Tony Stewart, with Liz McDonald yet to discover his infidelity.

    I was watching Corrie then, and I've googled this character, but I still have no idea who he is!

    Such a forgetable character being introduced again does not make sense... Unless a new actor is playing him

    Probably will be a recast swmc as the
    previous recast doesnt seem to have
    done much acting since.
    He wasnt actually in many episodes but
    was mentioned over quite a period of
    time!!

    Was in 10 episodes from 1996 ( when he
    and Tracy married) and moved to London.
    Last episode 2003 when divorced- so
    married for several years -off screen
    Tracy played by previous actress then
    recast when character returned after long
    time away.
    So I suppose can fill the gap with all sorts
    of events. I do remember Dierdre didn't
    want Tracy to get divorced!

    Probably back mainly to give Tracy a storyline!!

    Dawn Acton played Tracy 1988 -1999
    Then there was a gap and
    current actresss took over part in 2002

    I think 9 of the episodes Robert Preston
    was in were quite close together in 1996
    - so any one who missed Corrie for a couple
    of weeks could have missed them all.
    Then came back for one episode in 2003.
    I dont remember the character being particularly
    dynamic.
    I think they are looking for actor who can
    shake the cobbles( andTracy) this time.

    P.S. The actor who played Robert last time was
    Julian Kay.
    His best known role -so far- is 2 seasons as
    PC Tom Allen in Dangerfield- if that brings him
    to mond for anyone
