However, groom-to-be Nicky Milligan is finding it hard keep up the pretence next week in Emmerdale.

Nicky is getting ready to tie the knot with Gabby Thomas

But he’s struggling more and more

He’s unable to neglect his feelings for Ally

The former Home Farm nanny portrayed by Lewis Cope was embroiled in his father Caleb’s schemes and has no other choice but to go through a wedding with Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham).

Nicky told Caleb he wanted out of the plan after rekindling a passionate affair with his real lover, Ally (Josh Horrocks).

Unfortunately, and although he accepted Nicky’s sexuality, Caleb insisted he had to stick to the plan to get him out of his financial turmoil and prevent his mother from ending up in the streets.

With the pressure of keeping his family afloat, Nicky felt trapped into going ahead with the nuptials.

Next week on ITV, however, Nicky is due to celebrate his stag do when he begins to feel overwhelmed.

To top it all off, he agrees to meet Ally in private the following day – but could they get caught?

Gabby, on the other hand, remains blissfully unaware that her future husband is cavorting with his pal.

In recent scenes, she asked Bernice Blackstock (Samantha Giles) to walk her down the aisle on her big day.

Meanwhile, Caleb (Will Ash) keeps all his focus on Kim Tate and her share of the family fortune.

Revealed as Frank Tate’s illegitimate son, Caleb is trying to get back at Kim for killing his father and stealing his millions.

He most recently tried to hack into her laptop but after several erroneous attempts, Caleb had to call one of his contacts for help.

Caleb eventually gained access to Kim’s passwords but trouble is still lurking as he’s had no other choice than to turn his back on the Dingle clan by convincing Moira Dingle to sell her farm land.

Will he get away with everything?

Can Nicky keep up the charade?

Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
