EMMERDALE’S Cain Dingle is going to break Moira Barton’s heart next week – by demanding a divorce.
The bad boy – who is played by actor Jeff Hordley in the ITV soap – will discover his estranged wife is back in the village next week but instead of a happy reunion, he gives her divorce papers.
Is there any future for the former couple or are things over for good?
Moira makes an explosive return to the village as she grabs and gun and saves her son Matty from a group of thugs.
The farmer – who is played by actress Natalie J Robb in the ITV soap – left the village earlier this month to try and sort herself out after she descended into alcoholism and misery.
Her affair with Nate Robinson had left her life destroyed but when she left her young son screaming in pain as she passed out drunk, she realised she needed help.
She went to stay with Nanna Barton and left her son Matty in charge of Butler’s farm.
But next week it becomes clear he has been struggling to cope and his estranged step-dad Cain Dingle steps in to warn him about livestock thieves operating in the area.
Matty rejects Cain’s help and instead asks Vinny to help him but it will become clear the thieves are watching the farm.
He has no idea the danger he is in until a few days later when he and Amy arrive at the farm to see some sheep escaped from the barn.
And it soon becomes clear who’s responsible when the thieves approach Matty and Amy causing them to flee.
However they soon find themselves surrounded by the entire gang of thugs and things aren’t looking good for them.
But at the last minute a refreshed Moira appears with a loaded gun and it’s obvious that she is not to be trifled with.
Will she be able to save her son and business from the thugs alone?
And later in the week Cain will demand a divorce from her but will she spiral out of control again?
