Emmerdale star Jeff Hordley reveals Cain's motive in shock Caleb mystery

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Emmerdale star Jeff Hordley, who plays Cain Dingle on the ITV soap, has opened up about his character’s possible motivation for attempting to kill Caleb Miligan.

Next week, Caleb’s months of scheming to take Home Farm for himself come to a head when his secrets are exposed and the villagers, including the Dingles, turn against him.

After a tense confrontation with the villagers at the pub, Caleb is followed and pushed over the edge of a woodland ridge.

Several suspicious characters all return from mysterious outings back in the village, including Cain, Leyla Cavanagh, Will Taylor and Mackenzie Boyd. But whodunnit?

Discussing Cain’s possible motive, Hordley explained how Cain feels “incredibly stupid” for letting his guard down with Caleb and allowing him into his life again – including helping him with Kyle.

“There’s a lot of resentment there now as he feels incredibly let down,” he said. “I think Cain was beginning to accept the fact that he had a brother and he was beginning to quite like that they were starting to get on.

“It’s a shame, as far as Cain’s concerned, because once you let him down he isn’t the type of person to give you a second chance.”

Hordley also revealed that there’s an altercation between Cain and Caleb at the pub and they have to be pulled apart by Chas and Moira, before Cain “verbally threatens to kill him”.

He added that he supposes Cain has a motive “in terms of if he is capable of gunning for him”.

Although Cain says he was out “walking the dog on Zak’s behalf” at the time of Caleb’s fall, Hordley said that Cain is not “very forthcoming with the truth” when the rest of the Dingles start to question him, which “makes it all seem very suspicious”.

As for if Cain is even capable of murdering his own brother, Hordley added: “I think there is always potential for anything with Cain. If he’s pushed in the wrong direction or if he flies off the handle then anything can happen.”

Going on to share his thoughts on Cain being a suspect, the actor said: “It’s the nature of the show we are in that we often have these ‘whodunnits’ and I’ve been in the lineup for many different things over the years. It’s just another day in paradise for me.

“Will [Ash] and I are good mates and he is a brilliant actor to work with. I feel blessed to be working with him and really grateful that he’s in the show and I have a lot of scenes with him.”

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
