Emmerdale’s Dingle family are set to have a major “fallout” on the ITV soap in light of recent events involving Samson Dingle and Cain Dingle.
Emmerdale would not be the same without the notorious Dingle family who have been at the centre of some sensational storylines on the ITV soap as of late. Cain Dingle (played by Jeff Hordley) has been charged with murder, Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) has been having a secret affair, Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter) tragically died, Sam Dingle (Jamies Hoot) got impaled by a tractor spike and his son Samson Dingle (Sam Hall) has become a teenage father. Sam actor James has hinted a serious family fallout is on the cards for the Dingles.
Samson recently became a father after Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) gave birth to their daughter Esther during the soap’s dramatic storm week.
However, Samson has stated time and time again he’s not ready for fatherhood which could cause huge problems between the Dingles and the Spencers.
James, who plays Samson’s dad Sam, told thesuns.info and other media the fallout within the Dingle family could be “huge” in upcoming scenes.
James explained: “Sam Hall, who plays Samson, has played my son for many years and is coming into his own now. He’s been given this huge responsibility with this storyline where he becomes a parent.
He doesn’t want that responsibility, so it’s a great juxtaposition with the Dingles.”
Samson told his father he doesn’t want to be the baby’s dad and has no intention of letting her ruin his life.
However, Sam assured his son he would be a wonderful father to the little girl.
Will tensions continue to mount between Samson and Amelia if he struggles to adapt to fatherhood?
James added: “Sam and Lydia are all about family and looking after each other, while Samson is the opposite end of the scale.
“He doesn’t want this baby or the responsibility.
“It’s just been a joy to see Sam flourish as an actor and portray this particular perspective as well as he has done – he’s just been incredible.”
“It’s been really interesting to play,” the Emmerdale actor added.
Samson reluctantly agreed to register the baby’s birth which delighted Amelia, but will he step up to the mark?
So much drama is unfolding within the Dingle family, as Cain has been charged with murdering Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) for having an affair with Chas.
Cain actor Jeff spoke exclusively to thesuns.info about a potential fallout in the family.
He explained: “There could be, he and Chas always do things which seem unforgivable but they always seem to get things back together albeit temporarily.”
How will Chas forgive Cain for shooting her secret lover and will Cain find a way to tell her husband Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) about the affair?
Will Samson abandon his fatherhood duties and flee the village to start a new life?
This could create friction between the Dingles and the Spencers in scenes yet to air.
Jeff told the Loose Women panel on Monday: “From here, there are some really good stories.
“I think when you do stories like this you’ve got to have the ripple effect afterwards and this causes certain ripples throughout various characters in the village.”
