Is Jeff Hordley Leaving Emmerdale? Where Is He Today? 

The 52-year-old actor, who portrays Cain Dingle on the ITV serial, has recently been involved in a tear-jerking plot in the Dales after learning that his mother, Faith Dingle, had terminal cancer. Sally Dexter's character Faith initially kept her diagnosis a secret but eventually told her distraught kids.

No, Jeff Hordley is not leaving Emmerdale, but of course, he is saddened by the news of the exit of his co-star. 

The 50th-anniversary episodes of Emmerdale will begin with the departure of the veteran soap actor, the producers of the show revealed. Jeff's character Cain will play a significant part in the tragic plot line. The Faith storyline, which is a major one for us right now, will be the focus at the beginning of the month, executive producer Jane Hudson told the Liverpool Echo.

Jeff Hordley was born on March 7, 1970, in Crumpsall, England, and is now 52 years old. He is a famous English actor renowned for portraying the role of Cain Dingle in the ITV soap opera Emmerdale. He has received three British Soap Award nominations for Best Actor for his portrayal of Cain.

Hordley was born and raised in Oldham, Greater Manchester, where he attended North Chadderton Comprehensive. In 1997, he graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University School of Theatre with a BA (Hons) in Theatre Arts (Acting).

Jeff Hordley is still in the hit ITV soap Emmerdale and seems to be in Great Britain. He travels continuously to the Emmerdale set, usually in Yorkshire Dales.

Hordley was given a Crohn's disease diagnosis in 1996. He has had symptoms since he was 20 and has spent three hospital stays due to his ailment.

Talking about the actor's personal life, he married his Emmerdale co-star Zoe Henry in 2003. The reel life and real-life couple have two children, a daughter Violet(born in 2005), and a son, Stan( born in April 2008).

Cain Dingle Plot Details

Cain Dingle's role in Emmerdale is portrayed by a talented British actor Jeff Hordley. Cain made his debut on March 30, 2000, and was written off the series when Hordley left the serial opera in 2006. However, the possibility of a comeback was confirmed, and it happened when Hordley joined the cast again in February 2009.

Finding out that his "uncle" Zak Dingle (Steve Halliwell) is his father has been the critical plotline for Cain. Subsequently, he discovered his relationship with his cousin Charity Dingle.

He is entangled in realizing that he is Debbie's (Charley Webb) father, his liaison with Moira Barton (Natalie J. Robb), and their subsequent relationship, being assaulted in a mystery where the murderer turned out to be the victim's father.

It was revealed in 2011 that Cain would participate in a "major" plot in which an unidentified assailant attacks him in a "whodunit"-style plot. The story took shape after Cain had amassed several adversaries over the year and made one of them "do the ultimate revenge."

Who Is Really Leaving The ITV Soap Opera Emmerdale?

According to Jeff, the on-screen mother's departure left him in shock. He continued, "My character is entangled in the Faith storyline. Although I'm personally heartbroken by the passing of the magnificent Sally Dexter, it will allow for some fantastic future stories. That is all I know, and I look forward to accomplishing it.

The narrative has been "difficult" to film, according to actress Sally, who is now leaving the Dales, and the cast and staff have been a fantastic support. So for clarification, actress Sally Dexter is leaving Emmerdale as she confirms her losing battle against breast cancer. 

In a TV Times interview, she also promised that her character still has "a few wild plans" in store and that her final farewell from Emmerdale won't be boring. I believe the exit tale is lovely, she said about it. Although I haven't seen the scripts for her passing, I'm hoping for the best outcome possible. The series synopsis is a larger family story rather than just a cancer story.

"The best thing about dying is what comes before it: life and all the love that comes with it. To toast her, I'd adore it if everyone watching had a miniature bottle of gin. Sarah, the great-granddaughter of Sally's character, will teach her how to appreciate life's little pleasures, Sally said.

That's a steep learning curve for Faith, she added. She has a more appreciating world perspective, and she and Cain share a memorable moment. "Some of the screenplays echo how I feel. She's speeding toward the end of her life, just as I'm hurtling toward the conclusion of my time in Emmerdale," she explained.

She anticipated that the thing going to happen to her would be pretty devastating as she would leave behind people she cares about.
