It has been revealed that ‘Emmerdale’s Cain Dingle will try to kill ex-fiancee Charity Tate when he flies into a jealous rage.
The village bad boy – played by Jeff Hoardley – tricks his former flame into meeting him at a hotel and when their heart-to-heart is interrupted by a porter bearing a gift Charity (Emma Atkins) has bought for new man Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson), Cain sees red and pounces on his ex-lover.
Jeff said: “There’s quite a personal note with the present and Cain wants to know why she never wrote stuff like that for him.
“Charity throws a flippant comment back and a red mist comes down. In a moment of craziness, he pushes a pillow over her face. He thinks, ‘If I can’t have you, nobody else can’, but thankfully he realises what he’s doing just in time.”
Cain’s rage comes after an evening of revelations between the pair.
Jeff revealed: “Cain pushes Charity and it’s a real cat-and-mouse game for a while. She almost gives in – but then he brings up her past as a prostitute again.
“She ends up telling him stuff he never knew though, like how she was abused by one of her first clients and never got paid much – it’s a real heart-to-heart.”
As well as trying to win back Charity, Cain also plans revenge on Jai – by attacking the businessman’s brother Nikhil (Rik Makerem).
Jeff added to Inside Soap magazine: “Despite what Cain says and does, Jai makes out he’s not bothered. So Cain’s plan B is to get to his brother instead.
“He tells Nikhil to have a word with Jai or he’ll suffer the consequences. He gags Nikhil and ties him up – then dumps him in a bin to prove his point. Nikhil is stuck in there overnight – but Jai later tells Cain that, no matter how much bullying he does, he’s not getting Charity back.”
