Emmerdale's Moira Dingle tells Cain he's making the biggest mistake of his life in Tuesday's episode (ITV, 7.30pm, see our TV Guide for full listings).

So Cain Dingle has decided that Amy, his son Kyle's biological mum, can have full custody. And not only that. But Kyle will never see him again.

It's a huge turnaround for the devoted dad who's been torn up over his recent estrangement from the little lad due to the bail restrictions the judge laid down.

Cain was furious when he heard that Amy wanted full custody, changing the current co-parenting arrangement that was working fine until the Al Chapman shooting.

But Kyle's recent behaviour has got Cain thinking and he's become convinced that he's responsible for his son's recent troubled behaviour and thinks the lad would be better off without him.

Moira is aghast as her husband fleshes out his reasoning behind his decision, explaining that he wants Amy to move away with Kyle to give the little boy a chance to start anew.

Having helped raise Kyle, Moira loves him like one of her own and is distraught at the idea. She also knows that not seeing Kyle will break her husband.

Can the farmer get Cain to change his mind?
