Rewind a couple of years and Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing his sister’s rapist Lee Posner (Kris Mochrie) after a blow to the head with a shovel.

Faster forward to 2021 and Emmerdale has just revealed that Robert might not have actually been the one to deal the fatal blow as Lee’s brother Luke (Max Parker) has just revealed a few hours before Robert hit Luke he had also got into an altercation with his brother that resulted in a blow to the head – and possibly the fatal blow that could have killed him.
