He said: "Yeah, he seems to have a huge interest in Gabby. He's got his reasons why he wants to be with her which will all come out eventually."

On whether his character was hiding something, he went on: "I think Nicky has got a lot going on, and maybe with it being a soap there is more."

On the fan theories over Nicky having a secret identity, and possibly being linked to another character, he added: "The fan theories have been great.

"It has been nice to see how other people view the situation and the character, and just the madness of what people come up with has been fun."

Fans recently speculated the character was linked to fellow newcomer Caleb Miligan with predictions they are targeting Kim Tate and Home farm.

Other theories included Nicky working for Jamie Tate or Joe Tate in a revenge storyline, with Jamie being the father of Gabby's baby son Thomas.

Fans are convinced the character is up to something and is using Gabby, while the soap has yet to confirm anything.

Bosses did tease in December though that he may have a secret, and not everything may be as it seems.

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30pm on ITV1 and ITVX, with an hour-long episode on Thursdays.
