Bob (played by Tony Audenshaw) was discovered by Emmerdale vicar Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) sleeping on a park bench in a hypothermic state.
After being rushed to hospital, Bob began to slowly recover with his friends staying at his bedside and offering him support.
The heartbreaking storyline arose after Bob cheated on his wife Brenda Walker (Lesley Dunlop) with Laurel Thomas (Charlotte Bellamy) and lost his jobs at both the café and The Woolpack.
However, it seems after pouring his heart out to Brenda on the ITV soap last week about how he should leave the village, his estranged wife could be his saving grace.
With Brenda at his bedside, Bob said: “It’s obvious I’m going to have to move away. There’s no work for me here.”
Brenda pleaded with him to speak with The Woolpack owner Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) about getting his old job back, but the homeless character replied: “It might not look like it but I’ve still got some pride.”
After Bob finally accepted some help at the end of Friday night’s episode, Brenda will go one step further by offering Bob a place to stay.
The offer will come after Bob admits to Brenda and her partner Doug Potts (Duncan Preston) he felt like a burden to them all, revealing he will be staying at a hostel.
Doug isn’t too pleased with Brenda’s offer however, as he begins to question what Bob’s inclusion in her life will mean for their relationship.
As well as wanting Bob to live with his children, could Brenda have other motives behind her offer to give her estranged husband a roof?
Will Doug be packing his bags as the husband and wife fall in love all over again?
Appearing on Loose Women earlier this week, actor Tony Audenshaw, 54, revealed how his character’s storyline was very close to home from his days as a young actor moving to London.
Tony told the panel: “I used to work at Thorpe Park and up North, things are much cheaper.
“I came down here, it was in the eighties and it was what £70 at the time for a B and B.
“So, if I was down for five nights, I’d sleep in my car for a couple of nights because we didn’t have much money coming in, I’d never do it two nights on the trot,” he revealed.
