Graham Foster has made more than a few enemies in his time in Emmerdale and he’s set to meet a sticky end when he’s murdered next year.
News of actor Andrew Scarborough’s exit was revealed last month, but not confirmed by the soap until now.
The drama is set to unfold in a week of special episodes in January.
In a unique storytelling twist of the type Emmerdale has become known for, the viewers at home will see the same day play out from a different character’s perspective each time.
They all have a motive to kill Graham, but which one of them did it?
While no official list of suspects has been announced, it’s sure to include Kim Tate, Graham’s boss, secret wife, and former lover.
Kim has always kept Graham on a tight leash, but he’s broken free and started a romance with Rhona – will Kim hit out in jealousy?
Or could Rhona kill him in a fit of passion if he betrays her with Kim?
Graham is of course holding the secret that he could be Millie’s father. With a bombshell set to be dropped over Christmas dinner at the Tates’ – could Graham reveal all?
And will that lead Jamie to kill? Or even Andrea, furious to have lost everything once her secret comes out.

Speaking about the upcoming story, show producer Laura Shaw said: “Graham’s murder will form part of an unmissable week of drama packed full of exciting twists and turns.
“It’s always exciting to step outside of our usual storytelling style and viewers will be on the edge of their seats as some of our villagers have their lives changed forever.
“Graham has been a huge character at the heart of some of our biggest storylines so it felt only fitting that he left us with an emormous, explosive bang to kick off what promises to be a massive year of drama for Emmerdale.”
As the list of enemies grows over the next month, who is really capable of murder?
