Jeff Hordley, who plays Cain Dingle, recently spoke about the ongoing mystery surrounding Caleb's intentions. Caleb was introduced as Cain's long-lost brother in December.

Asked whether he knows Caleb's secret, Jeff told TV Times: "I'm not 100% sure [what it is], but I've got an inkling – and no, I'm not going to tell you what it is!

"I'm just thrilled to have a good friend on board in Will [Ash, who plays Caleb]. I think the character has got a lot of gravitas, and Will is a fantastic actor."
