On the face of it, Cain (Jeff Hordley) seems like an expert secret keeper, having ended up in jail to protect his son’s big fib, but his lies are starting to unravel one by one, and the latest will reveal a member of the family he’s kept hidden for decades and put a few noses out of joint.
This secret is another one that could blow his entire family apart and though he currently has no relationship with Chas (Lucy Pargeter), this revelation will hammer the final nail into the coffin.

Whoever he’s on the phone to, the conversation does not go well. He lowers his voice when the guards look over and slams the phone down when the conversation doesn’t go his way.
