Jeff Hordley reveals all to Soaplife about Cain Dingle...

Soaplife: Why did Cain feel so strongly even before he knew the baby was his?

Jeff Hordley: “Cain has never stopped loving Moira. She has told him on numerous occasions that it’s over, though, so he’s had to move on. Otherwise, he would be with her. He realised he made a mistake when he went off with Charity and has regretted it ever since. Even though they haven’t been together, Cain has made it known that he is there to support Moira if she needs him.”

S: So what about Harriet?

JH: “He loves her. They have a lot of fun together. It’s a bit like a teenage relationship in that they keep saying ‘Right, we’re not going out with each other any more’ and then they get back together.”

S: And how does he feel about his newborn son?

JH: He doesn’t want anything to do with the child because Moira doesn’t want anything to do with him. That’s what he did with Kyle, too, at the beginning.”

S: Could Cain be Emma’s killer?

JH: “We’ve seen the lengths Cain will go to when he’s angry many times before – he’s thrown a lot of people into the boot of his car for a start. He’s been much more mature lately, but the Cain of old never leaves him really. I’ve always said he has the potential to snap. It’s in his DNA.”

S: Would you like Cain and Moira to be reunited?

JH: “I’m sad about Moira and Cain not being together, although it’s great working with Katherine [Dow Blyton, who plays Harriet]. It’s Cain’s own fault, though - he blew it."
