Emmerdale favourite hints that he is DEPARTING the soap

Looks like he could be set to leave the Dales…

Emmerdale actor Tony Audenshaw has hinted that Bob Hope could be set to leave the soap.

Tony, who has played loveable rogue Bob for 18 years, suggested during an interview on This Morning that Bob might leave the village due to his affair with Laurel Thomas.

Although Brenda has since found out that Bob has slept with someone else, she is unaware it is Laurel but Harriot has just put two and two together and figured it out, so will the threat of his secret coming out be enough to make him leave?

Bob was spotted with his passport in last night’s episode and Tony admitted his alter ego has a tendancy to “run away from his problems”.

He told Eamonn and Ruth: “He really loves Brenda and feels terrible that he hurt her, but he just can’t help himself.”

“He doesn’t really know what he’s going to do. He might leave, he doesn’t know where he’s going to go, it’s just typical Bob behaviour. He’s being quite immature and running away from his problems rather than facing them.”

Will Bob leave or will he stay and face the consequences of his affair?

Emmerdale continues on TV3 tonight at 7pm or you can catch up on 3Player now.
