Coronation Street's Odd Couple: Robert Preston & Tracy Barlow
What's the deal with Tracy Barlow and Robert Preston?
It's like Harry Potter dating Voldemort's daughter (the one who went to jail for murder and then set fire to an appartment causing the deaths of two fictional - but loved - characters).
There's no earthly reason why ol' Bob would be attracted to Tracy the Terrible. Yes, he was once married to her (but so what?) Frankly, Robert was better off with his most recent ex-wife (you know, the one that can't act). Of course, some men are inexplicably attracted to the proverbial bad female. But let's face it, Tracy is no Lindsay Lohan (more like a Lindsay Lowlife).
What do they have in common anyway? Robert's an accomplished chef. Tracy runs a poxy tat shop. Robert has human feelings. Tracy does not. Robert seems nice. Tracy seems evil. Need I go on? It's only a matter of time before Bobby gets wise to Tracy's considerable shortcomings. My only question is: why has it taken so long?
