Nate (played by Jurell Carter) has been embarking on a steamy affair with Moira (Natalie J Robb) in what seems to be a revenge plot against Emmerdale bad boy Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley). With his identity a mystery, viewers of the ITV soap will get the answers they’ve been waiting for in upcoming scenes and his past could be linked closer to his forbidden lover than originally thought.
When Moira first arrived in the village ten years ago, she was joined by her three children and husband John Barton (James Thornton).
Tragically, the latter was killed in a car incident three years later shortly after discovering his wife was having an affair with Cain.
This wasn’t the first time the farm hand had betrayed her husband as she had cheated on him with his brother James Barton (Bill Ward) and he was in fact the father revealed to be the father of Adam Barton (Adam Thomas).
The betrayal happened before the husband and wife moved to the Dales, so could there have been a chance James wanted revenge on his beloved?

If this were the case, James could have met with a stranger and had his own affair, leading to the birth of his own son years before Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) transitioned.
However, could this child have been Nate and having grown up in the shadows, arrived in the Yorkshire village to meet the rest of his family?
This would therefore make the mysterious character Moira’s step-son and son Matty’s brother, providing one of the biggest twists the soap has ever seen.
Speaking about the newcomer’s affection for his forbidden lover, actor Jurell said: “From the first time he saw Moira, he was instantly attracted to her because she's a very attractive woman both physically and mentally.”
