Cain Dingle dropped a shocking bombshell on Joe Tate’s fate in tonight’s Emmerdale.
The guilt-ridden mechanic, who believes his punch was responsible for killing Joe, couldn’t hide the truth any longer.
The police said they had found a body matching his description and asked Debbie to identify the corpse.
With horrified Debbie was in not fit state to look, Cain stepped forward to check if it was his daughter’s former fiancé.
Cain revealed to Debbie that it was not Joe, so was surprised with her negative reaction to the news he could still be alive.

Back at home, Cain came closing to breaking down in front of Moira.
She told him not to unravel now or there would be no family or future left for him.
Cain said: “The look on her face. I’m never going to forget that.”
Later, Cain found tearful Debbie alone in the garage and she admitted she could never get away from Joe and get on with her life.
