VICTOR Anderson rocked up the Dales and reopened old wounds for his son Charles Anderson.
The Emmerdale vicar portrayed by Kevin Mathurin shares a dark family secret with Manpreet Sharma next week.
After spending 25 years behind bars, Victor (played by Eddie Osei) was adamant on settling down in the ITV village and bonding with his estranged family.
But his son Charles was more than reluctant to allow him back into the inner circle and the enigmatic newcomer explained the vicar was partially responsible for his downfall.
To top it all off, Victor revealed he was also suffering from a brain aneurysm, although many fans of the Yorkshire-based soap are suspecting he could be faking it.
Coming up next week, Victor tries to find a way back into his wife Claudette's heart by flirting and Charles is thrown to see her so coquettish.

Victor encouraged his granddaughter – who, unlike Charles, wanted him to have another chance – to take the bull by the horns and quit her job to move on to greater things.
