Emmerdale cast Will Ash to play Cain Dingle’s long-lost brother, Caleb Miligan.

The well-connected and successful businessman will unexpectedly swing into the village on Christmas Day, much to the surprise of Cain (Jeff Hordley), for whom Caleb has many “tough questions”.

Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) is in for an even bigger shock, however, as Cain has kept his existence a secret from her since she was a teenager – although the revelation will no doubt spark even more drama between the feuding siblings.

Speaking of his new role, Will, 45, who is best known for his role as Chris Mead on Waterloo Road, said: “I’m thrilled to be a part of such an iconic show.

“Emmerdale is packed with amazing actors and I’m really looking forward to working with them. Caleb is a fantastically complex character and I can’t wait to get into it.”

Meanwhile, Emmerdale producer Laura Shaw said: “We are very excited to welcome Will Ash to the Village. It’s fantastic to have such a high caliber and immensely talented actor on our wonderful team. ‘

She continued, “When Caleb arrived on screen on Christmas Day, without a doubt, Caleb has to be the most unexpected and shocking Christmas present Cain and Chas have ever received!

“Calm and composed, rich and successful, at first glance Caleb is everything his brother isn’t, but will the two find they have more in common than they thought?

“What secrets from the past will haunt her and how will the rest of the family react when Caleb walks into town?

“His arrival certainly promises to shake things up for the Dingles and kick off 2023 with a big bang!”

Since Caleb’s arrival will stun Chas, there’s sure to be more fireworks between her and her brother Cain, who is currently in prison for the murder of Chas’ secret lover, Al Chapman.

And while Chas secretly mourns the loss of the man she loved, she is unaware that her brother wasn’t Al’s killer, but actually Cain’s young son Kyle, who pulled the trigger in the barn during the showdown.

During a recent jail stint with her brother, she expressed fears that Chloe Harris – the long-lost daughter of Al’s fiancé Kerry Wyatt – is on the verge of finding out who cheated on her mother with the late businessman.

She told Cain she was “sick of” keeping her love for Al a secret and admitted she was “dying inside” before pleading with her siblings not to tell the truth to her husband Paddy Kirk.

However, he is furious at his sister’s selfishness – her affair with Al prevents her from being present when her mother, Faith Dingle, dies.

After admitting that he would have told Paddy the truth if he hadn’t thought the betrayal would kill him, Cain fumed, ‘Don’t come visit me again because you’re as dead to me as our mother.’

It’s only a matter of time before Chas finds out the truth about Al and Cain, but the arrival of Caleb will cause even greater rifts between the siblings.

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7.30pm on ITV1 and on ITVX.
