Emmerdale character’s death hinted at in village set to be rocked by tragedy

An Emmerdale star has spoken of the possibility of a tragic death in the village.

Actor Lewis Cope dropped the bombshell during an appearance on Lorraine on Thursday, ahead of the start of an explosive storyline for his character Nicky Milligan. In upcoming scenes, viewers will see Nicky fighting for his life when he is found dead by his aunt Moira Dingle next to his wrecked car.

His friend Ethan Anderson, who had been drinking, was driving the vehicle when it crashed, but Ethan survived the ordeal.

Spoilers reveal, however, that in a twisted betrayal, Ethan pulls Nicky out of the car and leaves him for dead, fleeing the scene. He watches as Moira pulls up and finds an injured Nicky, immediately calling for help. However, Ethan doesn’t help Nicky or stay to support him or Moira, instead fleeing back to the village while Nicky’s life is still on the line.
