Emmerdale makes cheeky joke about stars’ real-life romance as scene references Jeff Hordley and Zoe Henry’s marriage – The Sun

EMMERDALE'S Jeff Hordley made a very subtle joke involving his real life wife Zoe Henry in last night's episode that was only picked up by show superfans.

As his increasingly agitated character, Cain Dingle, argued with mum Faith (Sally Dexter) over his wife Moira's (Natalie J Robb) infidelity, the actor included a cheeky nod to his own marriage.

When Faith wrongly tried to convince him that Moira was having an affair with Pete Barton, Cain replied: "No, you're wrong, because he couldn't even keep hold of the vet!"

Pete split from vet Rhona Goskirk, played by Jeff's wife Zoe, earlier this year, and the reference to her character didn't escape some.

One fan wrote: "'He couldn’t even keep hold of the vet' Cain mate that’s your other wife ?? #Emmerdale."

There's history when it comes to the playful in-jokes.

Back in 2017 Rhona said Cain was her fantasy man during a naughty game of truth or dare – delighting fans aware they were a real life couple.

Zoe and Jeff tied the knot back in 2003 and have two children together – Violet and Stan.

The family live together in Boston Spa, West Yorkshire and have known each other since they were at college.
As fans know, Moira is actually having an affair with Nate Robinson, and in tonight’s hour-long Emmerdale, fans will see Cain arrive at the hotel where the pair spent the night, leaving the cheating couple feeling very uncomfortable.

He’ll then coerce them to get in his car, leaving them stunned when he reveals he’s hired a boat so they can all go fishing.

But obviously fishing is the last thing on Cain’s mind, and he soon confronts Nate about sleeping with Moira.

The hunky farmhand soon admits to an affair with Moira with the two men coming to blows, battling it out on the tiny boat.

Cain then picks up a plank, preparing to finish the job.

Will he really kill Nate?

There’s also a shocking moment when Nate reveals his true identity to Cain.

So who IS he?

Last night viewers were sickened when a furious Cain tied up and tortured Pete.

The mechanic was furious after Faith told him Moira had been having an affair and eventually was convinced it was Pete.

Viewers know Nate is the one Moira is sleeping with, but Cain didn't discover the truth until he literally beat it out of Pete.

After sending Moira and Nate away, Cain lured Pete back to the farm and jumped him, knocking him unconscious in the farm.

He momentarily thought he had killed him and despite the guilt he felt after thinking he had murdered Joe, Cain instead said he wanted him to live so he could murder him properly.

Cain tied Pete to the chair and threw cold water on him before the torture began.

Pete tried to get out of the situation warning Cain that he would expose Moira's killing of his mum Emma.

"It's not me," he said.

"Where's Moira? Cain it's not me. I'm your mate. Think about it for once, think about what you're doing. Talk to your wife."

Pete was then left seriously bleeding after Cain's beating as he screamed for help.

He gave in and told Cain everything: "There was a text message, they were at it, there was no other explanation. I tried to make her see sense. It's Nate."
