Ryan Stocks is going to be left heartbroken in Emmerdale when he discovers mum Charity Dingle has kept him a secret.
The secret son of Charity has only just agreed to be part of his birth mother’s life after she begged him for another chance.
But their reunion hits a snag when he arrives in the pub to discover that she still hasn’t told any of her family about him.
Mother and son are having a chat when Charity let’s slip she has other children.
Obviously interested in his siblings, Ryan asks her about them.
She says: “I’ve got three more actually.
“I’ve got Debbie, Noah and Moses. Moses is the only one I need a babysitter for.
“Noah’s 14, Debbie’s 28. I’m so sorry I keep chucking these curveballs at you.”
Seemingly pleased he will have three new siblings, he then asks Charity if she has a husband and she reveals she is with Vanessa.
She says: “I have a girlfriend actually, she’s called Vanessa. She was at the police station with me.”
Ryan then asks: “Cool, so when do I get to meet everyone?”
But when Chas walked out into the bar and began talking through the menu options, Charity was forced to confess.
She said: “Look I’ve actually told her I was quoting you for a party yeah.
“It’s just a bit difficult.
“I mean they know what happened to me, they just don’t know about you yet.
“I wanted to wait a bit. And you’ll understand when you meet them. They’re loud, in your face and they’ll probably make you drink out of a welly.
“Fair enough,” he said clearly upset at Charity’s explanation.

“You should probably get back to work.”
Ryan then sat at the bar looking utterly heartbroken over his birth mother’s behaviour.
