Emmerdale fans have been suspicious of Caleb Milligan ever since he arrived in the village and claimed he wanted to reunite with his family.
Caleb Milligan (played by Will Ash) claimed he wanted to help Cain (Jeff Hordley) who was in prison for killing Al Chapman (Michael Wildman). Cain was furious to see Caleb and told him to stay away from the Dingles but he’s since wormed his way into the family. Now Emmerdale fans think they’ve spotted a clue which reveals why Caleb is really in the village.
In Friday night’s episode, Caleb was seen speaking suspiciously to someone on the phone.
He was heard talking to the caller about reeling someone in – potentially one of the Dingles.
The call came after Caleb was revealed to be the last person to see Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) before he left the village.
Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) and the rest of the family were talking to police in the Woolpack as they tried to work out where Paddy had gone.
After it was revealed that Paddy had slept with a former flame, Mandy, Caleb said he had seen Paddy (Lisa Riley)
The newcomer warned Paddy to leave the village and gave him a stern talking to.
The landlady was enraged when he claimed to have only spoken a “friendly word in his ear” to Chas.
He needed to be squared up. Obviously, he did. You were in danger, Caleb insisted.
Chas, however, was enraged and asserted that Caleb was to blame for Paddy’s disappearance and expulsion from the village.
The viewers were more interested in Caleb’s description of Paddy than the family was in his actions.
Fans immediately pointed out that he provided a very thorough description of Paddy’s attire, raising the possibility that he might be an undercover police officer.
McWhiskers posted on Twitter to speculate: “#Emmerdale Oh Caleb, that was a very policeyfied description of Paddy. Are you sure you’re not a covert police officer?
Chris P shared: “#Emmerdale Caleb giving a very forensic account of how Paddy was dressed. Just how a [police officer] would if talking to his superiors.”
ASuperGav tweeted: “Caleb very observant on what Paddy was wearing. Worthy of an undercover cop, I deem #Emmerdale.”
Viewers also became annoyed with Caleb’s involvement with Brandon sharing: “I’m so tired of #Caleb sticking his neb in where it’s not wanted! #Paddy #Chas #Emmerdale.”
“Caleb wanted to protect Chas from paddy really?! Hes not a scary gangster fgs he would never hurt her. He wouldnt hurt a fly. #Emmerdale,” Michelle continued.
It comes after Emmerdale boss Jane Hudson confirmed viewers are yet to work out Caleb’s big secret.
She told viewers: “Well, I can tell you he’s not an undercover cop, Coronation Street recently did that story brilliantly with Spider (Martin Hancock).
“We’re not going to copy it, so he’s not an undercover cop, there is a secret about Caleb and the viewers have not yet guessed it.”
