Noah (played by Jack Downham) took centre stage in last week’s instalments of Emmerdale as his stalking of Chloe Harris (Jessica Elland) was finally exposed. This led to several villagers wanting revenge on the teenager whilst his mother Charity (Emma Atkins) desperately tried to find a way she could ensure her son avoided being reported to the police. In the end, she ultimately decided to hand him over to the authorities herself as she knew her child needed to learn a lesson after breaking the law. With the youngster set to feature in an investigation over what he did on the ITV soap, he could end up being given a lengthy prison sentence as the courts see him as a threat to society.

The actor who plays Noah, Jack, spoke with Express.co.uk and other media and explained how his character will need help after his secrets are exposed to the village.

Jack said of his alter-ego’s behaviour: “He doesn’t see it as [stalking] at the time. Like a lot of stalkers in real life, when I’ve been researching, they don’t see what they are doing is wrong.

“He thought he was trying to be kind and trying to get her to see the real him and see what he was doing was right and he just wanted to know more about her and get close to her.

“Right now, I don’t think there is any way back unless he gets some serious help and has some serious conversations with people about his mindset.

“And the way he thinks about women and the way he should act around women,” he added, hinting there could be an exit for his character.

In the coming weeks, Charity is likely to be wracked with guilt over her betrayal, especially considering she broke the Dingle family code.

The code is in place so no other member of the iconic clan reports the other to the police but Noah’s mother saw no other way to help her son.

She could have thought he would have got a slap on the wrist or at least offered some professional help and some community service to address his matters.

However, she might not expect the judge to turn around and tell the youngster, because he is now the age of an adult, that he will be serving time behind bars.

In this instance, he could serve several years in prison as the judge believes he needs to keep away from people as if he becomes obsessed with someone again, this could lead to more severe consequences.

Don’t think there is anyway back

Noah would be furious with his mother as he knows she would be to blame for all this happening to him, still not realising he did this to himself.

As he would be spending time in prison, it would be most likely the writers would bring his time in the village to an end.

Of course, the door would be left open for him to return in a few years’ time as viewers would be able to see the changes he’s made in jail.

Unfortunately, his time in prison could have also given him time to contemplate how he was going to get revenge on Charity.

Will Charity’s betrayal backfire in the worst way possible as she ends up feeling the wrath of her son’s anger in the coming years?

For now, upcoming scenes on the weeknight serial drama will see Noah released after initially being arrested by Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton).

At first, the youngster will think it was Chloe who called the police on him but he will be shocked to discover it was his mother.

Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) will also be surprised by what his girlfriend did and she will explain she couldn’t let her son get away with what he did.

As she tries to get through to Noah, he pays a visit to Chloe to apologise for what he put her through over the past few months.

She will be horrified when he doesn’t seem to acknowledge he needs to be punished as he asks her to tell the police it was all a mistake.

Charity intervenes as she tells her son his anger towards her and Chloe is blinding him from accepting the true extent of his behaviour.

She reassures him he won’t be going to prison but little does she know what is lurking around the corner for her wayward won.

Harriet returns to arrest the youngster for harassment and breaking and entering, telling him the case is being referred to the Crown Court.

As he is facing an uncertain future, Noah’s mother is told by his solicitor he could be facing time in prison for stalking Chloe.

Having told him he won’t go to prison, Charity could have made a huge mistake but is this really the end for her troubled son?

Talking more about his character’s background, Jack said: “It’s been good, especially because Noah has the background for it, and he has the motives for it. You can see why these things have happened to him and why he’s got these wrong thoughts.

“With his past around girls and how he’s not really acted in the right ways around girls in the past and with his mum, Charity, and her very interesting relationships throughout him growing up, I think it’s all had a really negative effect on his view on women and how he should act around women.

“I think he’s really got it all wrong.

“You do get the odd little interaction in public where people think that you might be like your character in real life – but I promise I’m not.”

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7:30pm on ITV, with an hour-long episode airing on Thursdays.
