Taking to social media to share their thoughts, Farida quizzed: “I wonder if Cain’s brother is Chloe s dad?”
Angela shared: “How come this brother [has] never been mentioned before who’s his mum and dad. I bet he’s Chloe’s dad.” (sic)
While Heather asked: “Could this be Chloe’s dad?”
“Would be good twists if he was Chole’s dad n Cain found him in prison n they found it all out there the come out of prison together mind-boggling,” Craig said. (sic)
Other fans were left confused by Cain and Caleb’s family link, with Kat writing: “I was led to believe that Cain’s older brother (who was mentioned once in the nineties but never seen!) Was called Nathan!!! And —- Caleb Dingle was Zak’s brother (Mandy’s Dad), not Cain’s!!!” (sic)
Phil theorised: “So, is this Mandy Dingle’s father, husband of Vera-Lynn Dingle? If so, he has certainly shed a huge number of years. And he looks nothing like Mike Kelly. I am getting so confused about which Dingle’s are related to which and how!! Or is this a different Caleb Dingle?”
Alex went on to say: “Think we need more information here Emmerdale. Is he Zak, Faith or Shadrach’s kid? If he is Cain and Chas’ brother that would mean he’s Faith’s kid?”
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
