Played by Unseen

Robert Potter was the husband of Nancy, father of Audrey and maternal grandfather of Stephen Reid and Gail McIntyre.

Robert and his wife Nancy were strict with only child Audrey, thrusting responsibility upon her from a young age. When their daughter became pregnant at sixteen in 1956, the Potters were horrified, and Robert accepted an offer from close friends and neighbours Joyce and Malcolm Reid to adopt the child and raise him as their own.

When their daughter became pregnant again two years later with Gail, the Potters didn't give the child away. Nancy and Robert took care of their granddaughter most of the time as Audrey didn't show much of a interest in motherhood.

In 2000, while reeling about Sarah-Lou's pregnancy, Audrey remarked that Robert used to beat her.

Robert and Nancy died before Gail's debut on the street in 1974.
