Cain picks up on how Matty has been behaving and won't stand for it, confronting him head on.

But he's left stunned when the pair have an argument and Matty fights back.

Matty's toxic masculinity story has taken a dark turn in recent weeks as he's influenced by lads Jono and Ste.

"Matty feels that he has to be more like them to be a 'proper man' so he goes on a bit of a mission," Ash Palmasciano recently told ED!

But fans of the soap appeared to have had enough of him last month after his vile behaviour to Victoria Barton.

The rape survivor had tried repeatedly to talk to Matty to tell him her plans to move away from the village so her rapist wouldn't be able to find her anymore.

But trying to show off in front of his new mates, Matty brushed her off and told her to stop "clinging" to him.

Writing on a Digital Spy forum thread, one user said: "His treatment of Victoria, who should be the victim not him, is just horrible and has been from the start of the storyline.

"How he didn't realise something was wrong can only be explained by his total obsession with himself.

"She has been consistently there for him all through his problems and he does this, can't get much more nasty than that."

A second added: "He really is a disgusting character.

"Nothing takes precedence over his own struggles, ever. Vic could probably tell him she had only a day to live and he'd still find something of his own to whine about."

Another said: "He needs a punch from Cain and to get locked in the car boot for a week as Cain loses the key."

So when Cain does get involved next week and he's left surprised by Matty's agression, will he be able to help his stepson see sense?

Or is Matty in too deep now? Will he see the error of his ways and make amends with those he's upset?

Can Matty truly find himself without hurting those around him - and will Cain be the one to help him do it?

Emmerdale is on Monday to Friday at 7pm with an extra episode on Thursday at 8pm.
