James Moore reveals what happens when Ryan Stocks comes face-to-face with his biological father - written by Claire Crick
DI Bails is back in Emmerdale next week and it doesn’t take long for him to cause more trouble for Charity when he secretly goes to visit their son, Ryan Stocks. But will Bails manage to poison Ryan against Charity just as his trial for sexually abusing her as a teenager approaches?
Bails’ return comes just as Charity and Ryan are moving forward with their relationship, so much so that next week Charity even introduces Ryan to his little brother, Moses.
Deciding now is the time for Ryan to meet the rest of the Dingles, Charity plans a family dinner where she will make her big announcement. But as actor James Moore reveals, Charity’s plan doesn’t quite work out.
“Ryan’s very excited about Charity’s family dinner and he’s ready to dive in and get to know everyone.
“Meeting Moses is a touching moment for everyone involved. Ryan’s so excited to have a little brother and a bigger family to come in to. Especially as for quite a while it’s only been him and Irene.”
But before Charity can put the final touches to her family dinner, she’s stunned when she goes to Ryan’s house and finds Bails there.
“Bails visits Ryan under the guise that he wants to get to know him better, but Ryan knows something is amiss,” reveals James.
“When Ryan discovers Bails has a wife and a family his perception is altered and he’s more hesitant to believe Charity’s version of events.
“Charity’s alarmed to see them together and is worried that Bails could be putting ideas into Ryan’s head. But at the end of the day what she’s really concerned about is Ryan’s safety.”
With Bails’ trial looming, it looks like we will be seeing plenty more of the corrupt police officer. But despite his intimidating presence, James is convinced that once his alter ego finally meets the rest of the Dingles they’ll get on like a house on fire…
“Ryan’s a Dingle at heart and he’d love to be part of the clan. His sense of humour and his attitude to life resonated well with them, and I think he’d thrive as part of their family.”
Emmerdale continues on ITV.
