Thomas plays a much different character to his Emmerdale alter ego.

Lachlan was sent to prison in 2018 after it was revealed to villagers he was responsible for the murders in the village.

The teenager was in the car whilst his mum Chrissie, grandfather Lawrence and aunt Rebecca chased Robert Sugden, who planned to flee with his and Rebecca’s son Seb.

However Lachlan caused the car to lose control and smash into an oncoming lorry.

He went on to kill his best friend Gerry, conman Paul Tozer, who pretended to be Gerry’s uncle Terry and kidnapped Rebecca.

Eventually he attacked girlfriend Belle’s brother Sam Dingle and forced Belle to flee with him.

Although the teen went along with him, she managed to escape but was hit by Robert’s car.
