Despite his initial intention to cause chaos in the community, Caleb Milligan has left his imprint on the Dales.
But, as his history is about to be resurrected, another Emmerdale legend hinted at impending danger for the evil played by Will Ash.
It’s been a year since Caleb Milligan made his debut to ITV viewers as the long-lost sibling of Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley).
Although the latter became well-known for his fiery temperament and forceful personality, fans soon came to love Caleb for his sexiness and easygoing manner.
Viewers soon discovered that the newcomer was hiding a very important secret—that he was Frank Tate’s illegitimate son.
Moreover, Caleb had a son named Nicky Milligan (Lewis Cope) in the hamlet of the same name, and the two of them were prepared to depose Kim Tate (Claire King) and drive her out of Home Farm permanently.
The experience left Caleb in the hospital when Nicky shoved him into a ravine, and it caused grief for Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham), who discovered the truth on her wedding day.
Gabby begged Kim in vain for Caleb and Nicky to suffer consequences just as they were getting back to their regular lives following their botched plan, but it looks like her desire could come true after all.
Star of Kim Tate Claire King promised that the plot would be returned in the new year and gave a sneak peek at what’s to come in an interview with Inside Soap.
Regarding the next weeks, Claire stated, “I know there’s going to be a link back to Caleb at some time.”
“There’s some unfinished business,” she continued. There’s just so much he can take from Kim and Home Farm before he gets slapped. Caleb, take caution!”
Aside from his experience with Kim, Caleb’s life in the Yorkshire town is about to change since he is going to see his divorced wife.
Will Ash hinted at the possible addition of additional Milligans to Emmerdale in an interview with The Sun earlier in the year.
Actress Beth Cordingly was reported to be the newest cast member of the program earlier in December 2023. It was stated that Cordingly will be playing Nicky’s mother and Caleb’s wife, Ruby Fox-Milligan.
Tracy Robinson (Amy Walsh), with whom Caleb has started an affair, complicates things for him.
Because Caleb has shown interest in Craig Reed’s alleged murder, viewers of the long-running show have speculated that the illicit couple may be in for some baby drama of their own in the coming months. But will Caleb be able to avoid trouble? Could Kim Tate decide to finally exact revenge on him? Emmadale airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV.
