Emmerdale fans work out identity of Caleb Miligans ex-wife

Emmerdale: Caleb and Nicky reveal they are related

After months of speculation, Emmerdale fans found out Caleb Miligan’s (played by Will Ash) father was Frank Tate (Norman Bowler) and Nicky (Lewis Cope) is his son. When their secret was revealed, the father and son were arguing by Frank’s graveside about Caleb’s new relationship with Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi). Neither mentioned the name of Nicky’s mother so ITV fans have gone into overdrive trying to work out who she is.

Arguing with one another, Caleb told his son: “You have got to accept me and your mum are separated. We can do what we want.

“You know what, you really can be an unpleasant so and so.”

Nicky hit back: “I am whatever you made me.”

It was then revealed the pair have been working together to bring down Kim Tate (Claire King) as Caleb wants his share of inheritance from Frank.

This revelation led to fans trying to search for clues for who Caleb’s ex-wife could be and many are certain it is Meena Jutla’s (Paige Sandhu)’s defence barrister.

Fans will remember her barrister had the surname Milligan, which is just slightly different to Caleb’s which is Miligan.

The defence barrister was last seen in the ITV soap in late 2022 when she was at Meena’s trial.

Furthermore, Caleb managed to get his nephew Kyle Winchester (Huey Quinn) “legal help” when he killed Al Chapman (Michael Wildman).

Could it be Caleb reached out to the barrister for assistance in helping Kyle with his case?

Viewers rushed to Twitter to theorise the barrister is Caleb’s ex-wife with Jorjah McLeod posting: “Is Nicky’s mum the Defence Barrister Milligan (Amy Robbins) from Meena’s court plea hearing?

“Is that how Caleb was able to help Kyle with legal stuff? #emmerdale.”

Another posted: “His wife is Meena’s barrister whose surname is also Milligan.”

“I think Nicky’s mum is Meena’s barrister,” a third shared.

Speaking about the storyline and the build up to the reveal, Caleb star Will explained: “It’s nice to have their big secret out in the open.

“There’s been a lot of people speculating, even people coming up to me in the street and asking: ‘What’s Caleb up to?’ and ‘why is he in the village?’

“It’s good for that part of the story to be out there, great for the audience so they don’t start losing interest in that thread.”

He added fans will learn more about Caleb and Nicky in scenes they are still filming: “We’ve started to film some of the scenes of us working together, where you find out more details, and they’ve been great for us to play.

“We haven’t had many scenes together before because of the nature of the story and so now it’s brilliant to start this new chapter.

“The audience will start to see more layers to them and little secrets that they’ve got which adds complexity to their relationship. That’s been really fun to play.”

Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV at 7.30pm.
