However, while some of the family have never set foot in The Dales before, one person will definitely cause shockwaves - Robert Sugden.
Andy gets a nasty surprise
In many ways, Robert isn’t the same lad who left - literally, in that he’s being played by a new character… - but will his brother Andy give him a chance?
When Robert’s fiancé Chrissie arrives to check out Home Farm, Nicola refuses to take her seriously and convinces Andy and Katie to dress up, in an attempt to put her off.
However, things turn sour when Robert turns up, recognises his brother and rumbles their ploy.
‘Emmerdale’ Series Producer Kate Oates previously revealed details of Robert’s return, stating: “Home Farm has always been the seat of power in ‘Emmerdale’.
“Robert's going to have to prove himself worthy - not just of the big House on the Hill, but of Lawrence's daughter, Chrissie. But will the ghosts of his past hold him back?”
Watch ‘Emmerdale’ on Thursday 23 October to see the events unfold.
