William Ash, star of Emmerdale, made an appearance in another ITV soap opera where his character faced off against Rita Sullivan, Emily Bishop, Blanche Hunt, and Betty Williams in a dramatic confrontation.


William Ash, star of Emmerdale, previously appeared on rival soap Coronation Street twenty years ago. He plays Caleb Milligan, the long-lost brother of Cain (Jeff Hordley) and Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter).

In a dramatic plot point, his character Johnny James held up four Corrie legends at gunpoint.

A young criminal named Johnny tried to flee with the money he stole from the post office. On a rural road, he came upon Rita Sullivan (Barbara Knox), Betty Williams, Emily Bishop, and Blanche Hunt, who were lost.

He pulled a gun on Rita after his lies came to light, but Rita retaliated. Johnny was arrested by the police as soon as they arrived.

William starred in movies like Man in the Moon and Playing Dead, as well as television series like Shameless, Casualty, and Inspector George Gently, after this 2002 episode.

In 2002, the 47-year-old actor announced his return to the world of soaps, this time joining Emmerdale.

Will expressed his excitement about joining the show as Caleb, the son of the late Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter), in a statement.

“Emmerdale is packed full of fantastic actors and I’m really looking forward to working alongside them,” he said. “Caleb is a fantastically complex character and I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

The actor made his debut in the Dales in the Christmas Day episode of 2022, with residents discovering Nicky Milligan (Lewis Cope) was his son several months later.

In upcoming scenes, Caleb and Ruby Milligan (Beth Cordingly) are left heartbroken as doctors cannot bring Nicky out of his coma.

Later on Ethan Anderson (Emile Jon) is left bloodied and bruised in the middle of the road – with Ruby and Caleb being the prime suspects.

At a villege fair, villagers are alarmed when a battered Ethan limps into view before he collapses in front of everyone.

When he comes round, Ethan says he did not see his attack as his family rallies to his side.
Was it Ruby, Caleb or Cain behind the brutal assault?
