GABBY Thomas is excitedly preparing herself to walk down the aisle with Nicky Milligan.
Little does she know that he’s struggling to cope with the pressure as he keeps a massive secret from everyone in Emmerdale.
Nicky asked Gabby Thomas to marry him
But he’s actually in love with somebody else
He’s unable to continue lying to Gabby – how will his father react?
The nanny played by Lewis Cope rocked up the ITV Dales shrouded in mystery but viewers were convinced he was keeping a sinister secret.
They were proven right when Nicky was revealed to not only be Caleb Milligan’s son but also Frank Tate’s grandson and his true motives finally came to light.
Nicky was embroiled in his father Caleb’s (Will Ash) plot to take over Home Farm and what he believes is his due.
This led him straight to ask for Gabby’s hand in marriage in an attempt to get her share of the Tate fortune.
But this was no easy feat for Nicky as he’s also in love with his old pal Ally (Josh Horrocks) who arrived in the eponymous village in recent weeks, taking the scheme by surprise.
Nicky has tried to ask his father to carry on with his plan without him, only for Caleb to threaten him into compliance.
During tonight’s trip to the Yorkshire Dales, Nicky finds himself more overwhelmed than ever as Caleb’s plan takes a promising turn.
Coming up, when Kim logs into her bank account Caleb secretly hacks his way in and elatedly discovers her last outstanding password necessary to clear her out later.
At the outskirts of the village, a hungover Nicky meets Ally, who suggests he marries him instead.
Nicky looks thrown but walks away.
Kim joins Caleb to look over the Stud Farm plans and asks him to arrange for the architect ‘Adrian’ to visit.
Nicky hates the lie he is living and panics when Caleb tells him the goal posts have moved, they will have to play a longer game.
Unable to cope, Nicky tells Caleb he wants out of the plan – but will he be excused?
Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
Will Nicky be able to pull out of Caleb’s plan?
Or will he have to marry Gabby?
