Emmerdale viewers 'work out' what Nate is hiding ahead of shock kidnap plot

Emmerdale viewers think they have solved what is going on with Nate Robinson, and what he might be hiding ahead of dramatic scenes on the ITV soap.

The character sparked concern with his dad Cain Dingle on Thursday, as he began acting oddly and was trying to avoid being seen.

When Cain's wife Moira questioned why Nate's daughter Frankie was in the village without her mother there, Nate claimed his ex Tracy Metcalfe was fine with it and that Frankie wanted to see him.

Moira and Cain wanted to spend time with the little one, but Nate suggested they were too busy and had things to do.

As Moira insisted that he let Frankie visit the farm, he made an excuse and left leaving dad Cain very confused.

Also in the episode Cain came across Nate retrieving some of Frankie's things from the car, and was shocked to see how much stuff was in the boot.

Cain commented on the fact he had a lot more than a short trips worth of clothes and toys, but Nate brushed it off and claimed there was nothing more to it.

His dad had also wanted Frankie to see his young sons, but Nate couldn't tell Cain how long the little one was stopping for - while he also kept insisting he had to be somewhere.

Viewers watching the episode were quick to speculate over what Nate was up to, believing they knew what he was hiding.

The key theory was that Nate had kidnapped his daughter Frankie, while others questioned if Nate was Tracy's mystery groom ahead of her upcoming wedding.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer said: "Hope Nate has pinched Frankie?" as another agreed: "Nate has knicked Frankie."

On the latter theory, one fan commented: "Frankie is his and Tracey's bridesmaid."

A second fan said: "I hope it’s Nate that Tracey’s marrying," as a third said: "Nate off to get married."
