Tristan Gemmill, who plays Robert Preston, was interviewed on BBC Breakfast this week where he spoke about Robert's testicular cancer storyline.
Tristan is very well spoken in real life, it was quite odd hearing him talk a little bit more posh than Robert does in Corrie.
He says that Robert's in denial at first about the cancer news, which we've seen play out on screen now.
You can watch the video interview here.
