Drama: Coronation Street viewers watched for months while Robert continued to lead a double life while playing both Michelle Connor and Vicky Jeffries
The South African resident, who participated in the show in 2015, revealed that he will leave the long-running soap opera later in the year, but promised dramatic performances until then.
He wrote: & # 39; People, I just wanted to let you know that it's time for me to hang up the equipment of the chef and start looking for new pastures.
& # 39; There is still a lot of drama & shenanigans for Robert, but I will leave Corrie later this year. & # 39;
In the middle of Tristan's exit, Kym Marsh, who plays fiancee Michelle on the screen, has also stopped the show.
Death on the boulders: & He comes to the hospital, but suffers from a heart attack and dies off-screen in a little snub to Tristan. It is left to Michelle to tell everyone that he is dead & # 39;
Although her character is not expected to be killed, the door will remain open for a possible return.
Kym announced in February that she would leave Weatherfield's cobblestone streets after 13 years on long-running soap.
She admitted earlier that her new grandchild was one of the reasons for her departure.
She told The Sun: & # 39; When I was lucky enough to get four episodes, I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would be here 13 years later.
& # 39; It was an incredibly difficult decision, but it seems to me the right time to explore a number of other roles. & # 39;
Their departure comes when several cast members stop the ITV soap this year, including Faye Brooks, Katie McGlynn and Lucy Fallon.
Furthermore: both Kym Marsh and Tristan Gemmill have given up their roles earlier this year, but while the character of Tristan is dying, Kym & # 39; s are not being killed
