Emmerdale fans ask 'who' as they're left baffled by Caleb's family bombshell in heated Nicky clash

Emmerdale fans have been flooding social media with the same 'who' based question as Caleb and Nicky Milligan clashed again. Those living in the Dales are completely unaware but viewers of the ITV soap know the pair are father and son.

Not only that, it was revealed that Frank Tate is Caleb's dad and is hellbent on bringing Kim Tate down and getting his hands on what he believes is his birth right - Home Farm. Earlier this week, Caleb, who is also the long-lost brother of Cain and Chas Dingle, had to watch on as Nicky came to blows with Cain.

The nanny had been found in Cain's garage as he planned to steal a flash Audi. But he was unaware that the former bad boy was standing behind him, watching everything. As Cain makes his presence known, Nicky tried to talk his way out of trouble and returned the conversation to look for Lucas' telescope, which Cain's son Isaac took during a brief play date on the park.

It wasn't long before punches were being thrown and later, outside in The Woolpack's beer garden, Caleb seethed as he warned his son to stay in his lane as he continues on with his plan to fleece Kim. And the tensions were continuing to rise during Tuesday night's Emmerdale after Nicky spent the night with Ally in a romantic clinch - unbeknownst to fiancee Gabby Thomas.

And it was clear that Nicky is struggling to keep up with the façade of being in a relationship with Gabby especially now it's been revealed that he is gay and pleaded with his dad to end the rouse. But Caleb wasn't willing and the dodgy businessman reminded him that Kim murdered his father and got away with it.

"I'm playing my part, and you need to do the same," the character, played by Will Ash, told his son, played by Lewis Cope, I thought we were a team. Aren’t we doing this for our family? To help us get back on our feet. It's only for a bit longer. Think of your mum. Do you really want her out on the street because of you?”

As Nicky tried to plead with his father again, Caleb told him: "Kim killed my dad, your grandad, have you forgotten that? You've met her, you know she’s more than capable. But we are going to make her pay. This is you and me son. I do my bit, you keep smiling and you keep Gabby happy. Stop whining. You have got a job to do, so do it. It’s time to step up and be a man."

But Emmerdale viewers were left confused as to how Caleb knew about Kim and Frank's past. @tamlizann25 asked: "Who told Caleb about Kim and Frank? #Emmerdale @emmerdale." @o_tajp tweeted: "How did Caleb know about Frank, Faith must have told him been in contact, I am confused." @Jamal06122771 added: "Caleb, you know nothing about your Father, and what he was like. All you know is that he was loaded. #emmerdale."
