Emmerdale enthusiasts are set to discover the harrowing backstory of Ruby Fox-Miligan. Sophie Roper, Emmerdale's latest producer, has revealed how the show will explore the intricate dynamics between Ruby and Caleb Miligan, especially after their son Nicky's departure last month.

Sophie hinted at a rich backstory yet to be explored. According to the Mirror, she has suggested the arrival of a new character, labelled as a "blast from their past", will arrive to shed light on Ruby's history and the couple's complex relationship.

Speaking to The Mirror, Sophie said: "Elsewhere, we've got Caleb and Ruby, who have landed in the village and had a real impact. But we don't know a huge amount about them and there's lots in terms of their history, particularly Ruby's, that is yet unknown. We're going to see a bit of a blast from their past come back and really give us some more information about this complicated relationship between husband and wife, and also the complicated family dynamics."

Currently, Ruby has her sights set on Kim Tate, determined to take her down to protect her husband. Speaking about her character's motivations, Beth Cordingly, who plays Ruby, said: "Ultimately, she's doing it for Caleb. She wants to make him happy. She's conceded that being with his family does that, even if she does whinge about living in the village, so her next step comes because of Caleb's beef with Kim she wants to punish her. Ruby also has her own thing with Kim, though.

"Remember when she and Kim were in cahoots and it ended badly, Ruby left saying, 'You don't want to cross me!' and Kim laughed in her face. So, there's a bit of pride in there for Ruby with this she's one of those people that's not very good at letting things go."

Beth also revealed who she believed might win a showdown between Ruby and Kim. She said: "Ruby is passionate and impulsive, whereas Kim's far cooler and doesn't get her feathers ruffled. We get the impression that Ruby and Caleb have been tough for quite a long time with a lot of people. But is she up to Kim? Well, we'll see.."
