He's back! Rob Donovan, the Coronation Street killer has been revealed as being back on the show. 

Actor Marc Baylis is reprising his role as killer Rob and so it's timely to have a very quick look back at Rob Donovan's story so far.

Rob Donovan is Carla Connor’s younger brother. He first turned up in Coronation Street in 2012 after being freed from Strangeways.  He was billed as a 'street-fighting hunk' on his arrival.

He managed Underworld with Michelle Connor while Carla was away for six months in L.A.

He and Tracy Barlow joined forces and he ran Barlow’s Buys with her after Carla sacked him from Underworld.

In order to win Tracy's mum over, he flirted with Deirdre. She loved it.

 He got engaged to Tracy.

Rob left Coronation Street after murdering Tina McIntyre. He killed Tina after he found out she’d had an affair with Rob's brother-in-law, Peter Barlow (who was married to Carla).

Rob was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison.  While in the big house, he tried blackmailing Johnny Connor, aware that Johnny was really Carla’s dad.

And now he’s free, what trouble will be bring for Tracy this time around?
