Emmerdale’s Natalie Robb reveals to Soaplife how Moira’s criminal nephew Ross brings even more grief to her door… By putting Adam’s life in danger! And it’s Cain she turns to – again.

How does Moira feel about Ross taking Laurel to court?

“She’s finding it difficult because Laurel and Marlon are her friends. But Ross is family…”

But then he saves Gabby from being hit by a bus…

“Yes and that’s when Moira softens a little bit. However, it’s always in the back of her mind that he tried to mug Laurel when there was a baby in the car.”

Then a gang of crooks comes looking for Ross. What happens?

“It’s harrowing. Moira’s locked in the refrigerator van and she knows that they’re beating Adam. She doesn’t even know if he is going to get out of it alive. They trash the farm and burn all the equipment in the processing factory. They also trash the house.”


“They wreck everything Moira has worked for all her life and when she sees the carnage she breaks down and loses the plot… However, it’s a relief that her son isn’t dead, although he is in a mess.”

Is that why she visits John’s brother James?

“She goes because it reminds her of her old life. He’s the same kind of man that John was. However she didn’t realise that his family was in such a bad state. Because James has spent so much time looking for his son Ross, he has let the farm go downhill.”

What does Moira do?

“She ends up offering him help. They’ve known each other for a long time and were quite close at one stage.”

Where does all of this leave Cain?

“When everything’s falling apart, there’s a point where she thinks she can walk away from him, but she realises she’s still in love with him. It’s a deep love, but it’s never going to be easy…”
