Ellis told his mum he had dropped out of university and decided he didn’t want to be a PE teacher.

Jessie’s boyfriend Marlon offered Ellis his spare room and he moved in with them and Marlon’s daughter, April.

At Jessie and Marlon’s wedding, Ellis’s older brother Billy arrived after coming out of prison. He was inside for assault after beating a man up with a group of friends.

During Emmerdale’s Big Night Out, Ellis was stabbed after kissing a girl Kiera he had met that night.

Whilst Kiera and Ellis were together, his brother Billy was being confronted by Riley’s brothers.

Although everyone assumed Ellis had been stabbed by Max, a former accomplice of Billy’s, it was revealed in flashbacks Riley’s brothers had stabbed Ellis, and Kiera was their sister and was distracting him while they went after Billy.

After Billy got away they targeted Ellis.

Since the attack Ellis has been on edge and knocked stepdad Marlon over the head with a rolling pin thinking he was an intruder.
