Is Emmerdale's Luke gay?

Emmerdale character Luke Posner has left fans wondering if he’s gay or bisexual after it was revealed he has an ex-boyfriend.

In Friday night’s episode (January 22), the bombshell was dropped that Luke has been hiding a sexuality secret.

Quietly taking Ethan to one side, Luke told him: “Look, a lot’s changed since I last saw you.

“It would really help me out if we acted like we haven’t met. So as far as anyone’s concerned we don’t know each other.”

Ethan agreed but was confused until later when he discovered Luke and Victoria are together.

Victoria saw the look of shock on his face and joked it was because she’s out of Luke’s league, but it was clear Luke wasn’t happy.

Shortly after Luke made his excuses, claiming the beer was making him unwell.

He left to go outside, but Ethan quietly followed and demanded answers.

He said: “I didn’t think I would ever see you again after the way you walked out.”

Luke insisted: “I’m with Victoria now, we’re happy. I don’t want anything to spoil that.

I’m not gay or bi. Steven was a one-time thing. I don’t want to get into this with you.

“Look, my girlfriend Victoria, she’s been through a lot and I don’t want her to think that I’d lied to her about something that didn’t mean anything anyway.

“I’m not gay or bi. Steven was a one-time thing. I don’t want to get into this with you.

“You don’t know me and I don’t know you so stay the hell away.”
