It seems that Robbie has returned to Albert Square with his fair share of problems. His financial worries as well as the fact that his wife Nita has left him, have left Carol and Sonia stunned.
After the initial shock of his return, Carol surprises Robbie and his son Sami with a smaller version of Wellard!
Long time fans know that Robbie and his sidekick Wellard were inseparable until Robbie left to go to India with Nita to start a new life. The original Wellard was ultimately left in the care of Gus and the pooch had his own big story line when he bit Ian Beale. The campaign to save the canine from being euthanised after this incident became known as “Walford One Owed Freedom” (WOOF) in 2005.
