Entertainment website Digital Spy first announced the character of Rob on 5 September 2011. A Hollyoaks spokesperson said that the students are "possibly the coolest set" to ever feature in the serial because they "shake things up" and face "life's hardest lessons". Their fresher's week branded the "most fun and cringe-worthy" one ever Digital Spy's Daniel Kilkelly later announced Rob would depart the serial on 18 February 2013.

Characterisation Edit

Rob was initially billed as a "sporty jock", while have described him as having three passions: his girlfriend Annalise Appleton (Tamaryn Payne), "sport and partying". Rob is "sociable", likes "the blokey camaraderie of team sports" and "drunken banter". 

Arrival Edit

Rob arrives at HCC with Annalise and meets his flat mates Barney, Will and Scott. Rob dares Ash Kane (Holly Weston) to trip off in front of the crowd in the SU Bar, which annoys Annalise. Rob and Will join the university rugby team and he repeatedly goes out drinking with his new friends. He forgets to keep his plans with Annalise and she tires of his partying. They argue and she forces him to sleep on the sofa; they later make up. Rob forgets about his two-year anniversary with Annalise, but Scott offers to help out with invitations. Rob later goes out to a rugby match instead of having a drink with Annalise and, after a talk with Scott, Annalise rings Rob to discuss their relationship. As he heads to meet her, he is accidentally run over by Ethan, who drives away after hitting him. Jacqui McQueen (Claire Cooper) then discovers him and thinks he's drunk until she discovers blood near his head. She then phones for an ambulance as Ethan and Theresa looks on. Ethan later hands himself in and Rob recovers.
