James's character Ryan joined Emmerdale last year as Charity Dingle's long-lost son, who she presumed had died at birth.

A 14-year-old Charity Dingle found out she was pregnant for the second time after being held captive and raped by DI Mark Bails and his friends.

Charity had been thrown out of her home by her father Obadiah after she fell pregnant the first time and gave birth to a daughter, Debbie, who was given to Obadiah's friend Pat to raise.

Shortly before she had Ryan, Charity managed to escape Bails and went to stay with a friend.

She gave birth to Ryan in hospital, however she thought her son had died and she ran off, blaming herself for drinking vodka whilst pregnant in order to stop her pregnancy.

Ryan survived, though, and was adopted by the midwife, Irene Stocks, who raised him.

Charity got into contact with a now 28-year-old Ryan and explained the full story.

Eventually DI Bails was sentenced to thirty years in prison after being found guilty of unlawfully imprisoning Charity and raping her.

After a bumpy start, Ryan began coming to the village and Charity introduced Ryan to her family.
