Emmerdale’s newcomer Graham (played by Andrew Scarborough) has had fans desperate to discover the truth behind his identity and his connection to close friend and boss Joseph (Ned Porteous).
The pair have been at odds ever since the billionaire businessman found out that his trusted aide had secretly deleted CCTV footage from the kitchen at Home Farm, but tonight’s instalment of the ITV soap showed that Graham’s suspicions were growing.
Coming to the conclusion that Graham had plans to expose Joseph’s dodgy dealings, fans thought they’d discovered that he was actually an undercover police officer.
One person shared their theory on Twitter, writing: “D’you think Graham is an undercover copper delving into Joseph’s dodgy business? #Emmerdale.”
The clever character picked up on Joseph’s woes after yesterday’s harrowing episode saw the Home Farm owner visit drug dealer Simon McManus (Liam Ainsworth).
Knocked for six, Joseph heard exactly how his ex-girlfriend Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) was involved in Ross Barton’s horrific acid attack, but suffered with his inner turmoil alone.
Bumping into him in the manor tonight, Graham finally confronted his employer.
“I know something’s gone wrong, you wouldn’t have cut me out otherwise,” he said.
But Joseph remained stubborn about his extracurricular activities saying: “If I wanted you to know I’d tell you.
“So assume this is none of your business and stay out of it,” he then warned with a sinister expression.
Clearly disappointed, Graham went on his way, but could the character be reporting Joseph’s whereabouts to the higher authorities in the meantime?
Later, Joseph seemed to be ready to break bread with his former confidante as he found him in the Woolpack sitting alone.
Spying Graham intently reading a book, Joseph acknowledged: “You look busy I’ll leave you to it.”
“You’ll do what you want you always do,” a frustrated Graham replied, as Joseph stormed off.
Meanwhile, Debbie got herself even deeper involved in Ross’s fight to bring his attacker to justice when she knowingly lied to the police about recognising Simon on a photo sheet.
As her crimes rack up, surely Debbie is headed for prison when the truth comes out?
Emmerdale continues tomorrow at 7pm on ITV.
