Chloe was an ex-con introduced to Robert Preston by Billy Mayhew in March 2019. Chloe was part of a scheme that Robert had joined, where ex-offenders were brought back into work and she was briefly employed at Viaduct Bistro as a pot-washer.
In June, Robert told fiancée Michelle Connor that he was going out to visit Chloe as she was struggling to reform - when in reality he was visiting Vicky Jefferies and her son Tyler. His cover was almost blown however when Billy told Michelle that Chloe was back inside the young offenders' institute. Robert quickly changed his story and told Michelle that he'd gone to the travel agents to book a surprise honeymoon.
