A Sunday tabloid has actor Andrew Scarborough pegged as leaving the Dales-based saga.
The Daily Star claims that Scarborough is set to film his final scenes as Graham Foster in the next few weeks.
“Andrew’s been a great addition to the cast and has been involved in some of Emmerdale’s biggest storylines since he arrived in the village in 2017.” – An Emmerdale insider told the paper
ITV have not confirmed the reports, but if true, Graham’s ongoing feud with Kim Tate (Claire King) could form the basis of his exit storyline.
Graham is currently on the outs from Kim over his relationship with Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry).
Kim threatened to destroy the couple but Graham chillingly warned her he would kill her if she went anywhere near Rhona. He also exposed her son Jamie as being the person responsible for giving the police the evidence that put her in prison for seven years.
It was also recently revealed that Graham is probably the father of Kim’s granddaughter Millie – something which is unlikely to go down well with Kim should she ever find out the truth.
“His exit will be huge and will kick start a drama filled and action packed year in the Dales,” The Star’s source added.
Graham has been an Emmerdale resident since September 2017. The former SAS soldier initially appeared to be Joe Tate’s (Ned Porteous) right hand man, with it later revealed that he actually worked for Kim.
A troubled alcoholic, viewers found out via flashbacks that Graham’s drink-driving had caused the death of his wife and child.
Having grown fond of Joe, Graham was torn when Kim ordered him to kill him. Instead, he let Cain Dingle think he had killed Joe after the two came to blows, with Graham helping Joe to escape in secret.
