ZOE Tate was last seen in the Dales in 2005 before she left to start afresh in New Zealand.

But the legendary Emmerdale character makes a sudden appearance to give Noah Dingle a shock.

Noah Dingle is a reformed trouble maker

Recent months have been harrowing for the lad

But he managed to turn his life around

The troubled teen portrayed by Jack Downham has had a rocky life in the eponymous village.

ITV viewers will remember the lad was sent to prison after being found guilty of harassing and tormenting his former flame Chloe Harris.

Fans of the Yorkshire-based drama had lost hope the troublemaker could ever turn his life around as the chaos he wreaked throughout the village was continuous.

He had even planned to rape Amelia Spencer in an attempt to make Chloe Harris jealous.

However, Noah shocked them when he returned to Emmerdale a changed young man.

In scenes due to air next week, it’ll be Noah’s turn to receive a massive surprise.

The 18-year-old finds out that his aunt Zoe Tate set up a trust fund for him in his father Christopher’s name.

After changing his ways, Noah became romantically involved with Amelia Spencer, supporting her throughout her surprise pregnancy.

Viewers were shocked when Noah stepped up to the plate and confirmed he was ready to take care of baby Esther as his own as the baby’s biological father, Samson Dingle, wanted nothing to do with her.

Could Zoe Tate’s decision come in handy for the young father?

Zoe Tate was involved in a string of explosive storylines during her stay in the eponymous village, which began in 1989.

The iconic character played by Leah Bracknell most notably came out as a lesbian and even had a passionate love affair with Noah’s mother, Charity Dingle.

She also battled schizophrenia and had to cope with the deaths of her father and brother, Frank and Chris Tate.

The latter committed suicide after finding out he’d been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and framed Charity for his murder.

Zoe had been willing to testify against Charity, affirming she’d killed her brother but the Woolpack landlady gave her custody of Noah for the evidence that Chris took his own life.

She then left Emmerdale alongside her nephew Joseph, of whom she obtained custody after the death of his parents, and her daughter Jean.

Is there a bigger surprise in store for Noah?

How will Charity react to the news?

Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
