Emmerdale fans will know that Lyndon played villain and Cain's arch nemesis Nathan, who joined the cast as Natasha's son.

Nathan's biggest storylines included his campaign of blackmail and manipulation against spurned lover Leyla Harding and her boyfriend David Metcalfe.

The character was also a suspect in the murder of his own father Mark, but the real culprit was his mum Natasha.

Lyndon's portrayal of a spineless baddie is still remembered fondly to this day, with many fans still hoping he'll return one day.

Sadly, this is unlikely, as the new dad now runs his own Set Design company.

Before appearing to step away from acting, the Swindon-born star appeared in TV dramas such as Doctors, Close to the Enemy and Robin Hood.

In an interview as far back as 2009, Lyndon told North Wales Live that he envied his drama class friend Billie Piper because she was a mum.

He said: "I'm the broodiest boy in the world."

Looks like you finally got your wish Lyndon!
