Emmerdale's Ned Porteous reveals why Joe Tate SHOULD be scared of Graham Foster

And it's not just because of his awesome ninja-like fighting skills!

Since Joseph Tate smooth-talked his way into Debbie Dingle's life - and then broke her heart - Emmerdale fans have been desperate to know more about his business partner, Graham Foster.

And now Ned Porteous, who plays Joe, has revealed his alter-ego has reason to be afraid of his quiet sidekick. Ooh, sounds intriguing!

Graham's been quietly standing by as Joe plots to bring down the whole Dingle family until in last night's dramatic episodes, he leapt in to rescue Noah and Samson in the nick of time, as the bulldozers started to demolish Wishing Well Cottage.

"Graham is to be equally feared and respected," Ned explained. "Joe knows him very well and what he's capable of, but they also mean a lot to each other. As much as they fight they will ultimately want to stick together, but the issue will be their contrasting views on how things should be done.
