Pics: The many marriages of Tracy Lynette Barlow

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog August 2014, reposted to this blog with permission.)

As she prepares to marry Rob Donovan, I thought I'd have a look back at the other men that Tracy Lynette Barlow has been married to.  Have I missed anyone out? Let me know!

Husband No. 1,
Robert Preston

13th November 1996
Robert Preston was a carpet fitter. They were going to tie the knot in London, and not tell Ken and Deirdre the news but Tracy decided to marry in Weatherfield instead as it was cheaper. They married at the Register Office. She bought a £14 wedding dress. After their wedding, they left the street and moved to London. Tracy later had an affair in 2002 leading her to run away to Weatherfield and later divorce Robert, to Deirdre's shock. Deirdre tried to change Tracy's mind about Robert, but she simply refused to go back to Robert.

Watch the YouTube here of Robert's return to Coronation Street looking for Tracy.

Husband No. 2 - Roy Cropper
Friday October 31st, 2003

In 2003 Tracy headed up the aisle with a most unlikely suitor, Roy. Spiking his drink and claiming they'd slept together, toxic Tracy lied she was carrying Roy's child to swindle the Croppers out of their hard-earned cash in exchange for giving them her baby, which the Croppers named Patience.

Husband No. 3 - Steve McDonald
Monday January 23, 2011

Steve's wedding to Tracy didn't get very far before it was ruined at the altar by Becky. The wedding went ahead with Becky keeping quiet so that she got her ultimate revenge on Steve's betrayal of her - by making him marry Tracy. 

Husband No. 4  Rob Donovan in October 2014
Or will it all end in tears?

I'm hoping that Rob and Tracy's wedding will be called to a halt when they're half-way through saying their vows, with Tracy acting the Big I Am.  The police will come into the church and arrest Rob for Tina's murder.  Deirdre will light up a fag in the pew, Ken will despair and Peter, out of jail after being found innocent of Tina's demise, will drown his sorrows in the vestry with a jug of communal wine.

If he gets arrested should be after they say I Do, then she becomes Carla's sister in law.
