Emmerdale Moira: What happened between her and and mum?

Moira was born in Scotland on April 25th 1971.

She grew up with her mum, dad and brother Mackenzie. However their father was regularly violent towards their mum.

In 1989, Moira’s dad discovered his wife was having an affair with his best friend Tiny after discovering Tony’s watch in the bathroom.

He confronted Anne over dinner in a fit of rage. But Moira knew that if she didn’t cover for her mum then her dad would kill her, so she told her dad she was having an affair with Tony.

Her family shunned after this and she fled to England where she met her first husband John.

She went on to have three children with John, however John died in 2012.

She married Cain Dingle in 2014 and they have a son together called Isaac.

Ever since Moira has felt terrible about not making things up with mum before her death.

However some fans have a theory that Mackenzie could be lying and that Moira’s mum is still alive.
