Neil Roberts is set to return to “Emmerdale” as DS Wise, the soap has confirmed after some viewers spotted his name on the list of cast for upcoming episodes. No one knows his exact return date.
Some fans have speculated his return might have something to do with Maya Stepney’s (Louisa Clein) arrest next week for her abusive relationship with Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant). Others linked his impending return to Victoria Barton’s (Isabel Hodgins) rape case. While a few were just happy that he’s coming back.
The fan-favorite was last seen two years ago when he helped Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) during his sexual abuse problem. DS Wise helped bring Gordon Livesy (Gary Mavers) to justice for sexually abusing his son. He also had a brief romantic relationship with Aaron’s mum Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter). Chas is currently with Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt).
Emmerdale Spoilers – Maya Stepney’s Arrest Confirmed
Meanwhile, Maya’s arrest has been confirmed and is set to air next week on “Emmerdale.” Viewers of the soap have long been wanting to see the schoolteacher be brought to justice for what she’s done to Jacob.
In scenes that are scheduled to air next week, David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) will spy on his son through his laptop. This was made possible by Ryan Stocks (James Moore) after he installed a software on Jacob’s device.
David takes advantage of the time when Jacob informs Maya through his laptop that he has found her passport and money. David catches Maya by surprise when he appears at the Cricket Pavillion instead of Jacob. He confronts Maya who attempts to convince David to let her go. She promises to never contact Jacob again and to leave the village for good.
