Caleb Milligan (played by Will Ash) made his Emmerdale debut in December as Cain Dingle’s (Jeff Hordley) long-lost brother at Christmas. Caleb’s mysterious behaviour has kept ITV soap viewers guessing what his true motive for returning to the village is. As fans continue scratching their heads, actor Jeff has teased he’s got an “inkling” about his brother’s ulterior motive. 

In recent weeks, Caleb informed Cain he was getting close to everyone at Home Farm in a bid to claim it for himself. 

However, the newcomer’s cryptic phone calls to an unknown person have suggested he’s not been telling Cain the whole truth. 

Jeff teased: “I’m not 100 percent sure [what it is], but I’ve got an inkling — and no, I’m not going to tell you what it is.” 

“I’m just thrilled to have a good friend on board in Will,” the 53-year-old actor told TV Times. 

“I think the character has got a lot of gravitas, and Will is a fantastic actor.”

When the Emmerdale hard man was asked what will happen to Cain in the coming months, he explained: “More stuff with Caleb, and hopefully a bit of harmony for Cain and Moira [Barton].

“We don’t have many couples in the show that are true to each other, and it’s nice to see a bit of stability.”

Jeff also said it would be good to stay well away from affair storylines at the minute. 

However, he added: “But I’m not a producer or a writer, and the beauty of being in a show like this is there’s always a new challenge to play.”

Viewers have been voicing their theories about Caleb for months on social media, with many wondering if he is an undercover police officer or a drug baron. 

Some fans are convinced he is drug dealer Callum Matthews’ (Tom Ashley) boss and was linked to Leyla Harding’s (Roxy Shahidi) terrifying kidnap last week. 

Leyla, who wanted to get revenge on Callum, ended up getting herself kidnapped when he threw her in the boot of a car.

Before she decided to meet with the dangerous dealer alone, Caleb gave her some advice in the village graveyard which left fans suspicious. 

Vicky penned: “I don’t know why but does anyone else think Callum’s boss is Caleb? #Emmerdale.” 

Paul added: “Calling it now, Caleb is in charge of the whole drugs operation #Emmerdale.” 

Mike commented: “I’m wondering if Caleb is the boss of Callum? Caleb can be very sneaky. Just my opinion #Emmerdale.” (sic)
