Viewers of ITV’s Emmerdale are not happy as the soap recently confirmed Moira Dingle will have an affair with farmhand Nate Robinson.
Firstly when Moira was about to walk out of The Woolpack without taking her phone with her, Nate jumped up to hand it over.
As their hands touched, the moment lasted a smidgen too long with them staring into each other’s eyes.
Confirming the storyline, Emmerdale producer Kate Brookes said: “Those of you with eyes might have sensed that there is something going on with Nate and Moira, they’re looking over the hay bales at each other and there’s a lot of charged moments.
“It might come as no surprise to hear that they will be having a full blown affair.
“It’s going to be dangerous, it’s going to be very steamy, it’s going to ruffle a lot of feathers in the village.
“Obviously Moira is married to Cain who is the ultimate bad boy, so when he does find out, it will be explosive and there will be lots of drama and ramifications for all of our characters involved.”
Kate then went on to reveal that the affair will be exposed in October.
“We’re really going to get to the core of why this affair has happened, and the consequences to it.
“This will all come to a massive head in October, we like to do out big week in October. Honestly, it’s going to be a massive week of drama, it’s going to be very story led, there’s going to be a lot of tears, action and heartbreak.”
However fans of the soap are not happy that Moira will be cheating on her husband Cain.
Absolute NO to any affair between Moira and Nate.
If that's the only storyline you can come up with to create 'drama' then go back to the drawing board…not everyone has to be a cheat #Emmerdale
