EMMERDALE fans had been guessing Nate Robinson’s true identity for months and it was finally revealed that Cain Dingle is his real father.
So how did the secret finally come out and how did viewers react? Here’s the full lowdown…
Who is Nate Robinson?
On October 23, 2019, it was finally confirmed that Nate Robinson is Cain Dingle’s son.
The hunky farm hand – who is played by actor Jurell Carter in the ITV soap – told his dad who he was tonight during a vicious fight.
Gripping scenes saw Cain and Nate grappling on the deck of a small yacht during which Nate said: “Nate. Short for Nathaniel. Look at me and remember.
“You see me now – Dad? You must have known that I’d come for you one day. I’m your son.”
How did fans react to Nate Robinson’s identity reveal?
Sun Online readers had long suspected Nate is a Dingle, with a number of clues being dropped by scriptwriters that pointed to his true identity.
But viewers were still horrified that he’d knowingly had sex with his step-mum, tweeting: “I’ve just realised.. if Cain is Nate’s dad, then he’s technically been shagging his own stepmum…”
While some viewers were less impressed with the soap giving Debbie Dingle another secret brother so soon after the last one.
Debbie discovered last year how her mum Charity had a son called Ryan making him her half brother.
And this year she will now discover that her dad Cain also had a secret son – this time Nate.
Fans are not impressed with the repeated storyline with one writing: “Wow…That has now got to be what? The 100,000,000,000,000th brother Debbie Dingle now has!”
A second said: “Please Not another long lost son plot with the long lost son out for revenge. That sort of story has been done to death
Another added: “I wasnt even 1% shocked. To me the bigger twist wouldve been if hewasnthis son.”
