Emmerdale fans were devastated when Danny Miller’s character Aaron Dingle left the ITV soap opera last year. Tragically, he departed the hamlet, but the door was left open for him to come back later. Aaron will return in October, according to the producers, but is this related to his mother Chas Dingle’s (Lucy Pargeter) relationship with Al Chapman (Michael Wildman)?
Throughout his 13 years on Emmerdale, Aaron was at the center of numerous intense stories, from realizing his father had tortured him sexually to battling to embrace his sexuality.
After his boyfriend Ben Tucker’s (Simon Lennon) murder, which he believed was committed by his younger sister Liv Flaherty, he quit the serial opera (Isobel Steele).
He not only said goodbye to his uncle Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley), but also to his mother Chas in a tearful farewell.
Before Ben was assassinated by Meena Jutla, he had planned to move to Cornwall and had informed his family of this (Paige Sandhu).
At a recent press conference, Emmerdale producer Jane Hudson announced which characters will be returning for the anniversary month in October to Express.co.uk and other media.
Jane remarked: “We have Tracy [Metcalfe] returning with some news of her own, and how is Nate [Robinson] going to react to that? We also have Diane [Sugden].
And of course, Aaron [Dingle] is returning. Will he learn that his mother is having an extramarital affair with Paddy [Kirk]?
Will he realize Sandra Flaherty is not just about Liv Flaherty?
Aaron welcomed Paddy Kirk into the family when they got married two years ago because he saw Chas’ spouse Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) as a father figure.
If he found out his mother was having an affair with Al, he would be very disappointed in her.
Chas and Al will both “feature heavily” in the soap opera’s 50th anniversary month, producer Jane teased.
Will Aaron rejoin the soap opera now that he is aware of his mother’s betrayal of Paddy, a fan favorite?
