Cain Dingle Returns To Emmerdale

Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap.

Cain Dingle, played by actor Jeff Hordley, is to make a dramatic return to Emmerdale in April. The infamous soap villain – who fled in 2006 following a twisted kidnap plot – will be back this spring and we all know he’ll waste no time causing trouble and mayhem in the village upon his return. With his daughter Debbie caught up in a bitter custody battle for her daughter Sarah, and the King brothers, hell bent on revenge, it doesn’t take long for Cain to make his presence felt.

Talking about his return to Emmerdale, Jeff Hordley said: "The storylines that lead to Cain’s return are in keeping with his character and a perfect way to bring him back to the heart of the Dingle clan where he belongs."  Producer Anita Turner said: "Debbie will be going through hell in the next few months and it’s such a boost to have her dad fighting alongside her."

So folks, it looks like the residents are in for a huge shock; it’ll be bad news for them, but great news for us ‘cos Cain’s return will only make for more exciting viewing.  In theory anyway. I suppose you could say that Cain Dingle is to Emmerdale what Nick Cotton is to EastEnders and time is already proving that ‘Nasty’ Nick willl never change his ways. Personally, I don’t hold out much hope for Cain Dingle turning over a new leaf. In fact, with a name like ‘Cain’, you could argue that the poor bloke was destined for trouble from the day he was born (that’s a biblical reference for the uninitiated). Soaps would be nothing without a good villain and judging by his credentials, I reckon Cain could even give ‘Nasty’ Nick a run for his money. Below is a brief reminder of Cain Dingle’s infamous past…

Cain arrived in Emmerdale in 2000 for the funeral of his cousin Butch. He took an instant dislike to millionaire businessman Chris Tate (whom he blamed for Butch’s death) and policewoman Angie Reynolds and her family.

He had an affair with Angie Reynolds and caused havoc in the family – sleeping with her teenager daughter Ollie, and then pushing grandfather Len down a flight of stairs after revealing his fling with Angie.

Cain and Angie plotted to rob a Tate haulage truck, however, it all ended in tragedy  when the car Angie was driving crashed causing fatal injuries.

As a teenager, Cain had a fling with his cousin Charity who, at just 13, gave birth to their daughter Debbie.

Cain was involved in the sabotage of a show house which contributed towards the death of a young mother.

He and Sadie plotted the kidnap of Tom King so they could get a large amount of money in ransom.

That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me on Friday for more soap news and gossip. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.

    Cant wait, Cain was my favourite character and Emmerdale has lost the plot a bit with unbelievable story lines, such as; When did Donna go away on a residential police training course?…..did I miss it? Also, Debbie – a mechanic ..where did she train and get her knowledge to run a business? Any a huge welcome back to Cain….
