EMMERDALE fans have a theory about the reason for Gail Loman’s reappearance in the ITV soap – and if it turns out to be true, there could be a shocking family revelation.
Gail, played by Rachael Gill-Davis, has recently returned to the Dales after being absent from the program for several years.
She first appeared on the show in 2019, where she attempted to attract romantic interest from Ryan Stocks.
However, at the time he was busy with his ex-girlfriend Dawn, who broke up with him after he offered to pay her for sex.
Now Gail is back and happily working with Ryan, who got her a job at the local Woolpack pub.
But fans believe there is a secret reason why she returned to Emmerdale after all this time.
Viewers have speculated that she is actually Zoe Tate’s long-lost daughter.
The mother-daughter duo left the village for New Zealand in 2022 following an argument between Zoe and Charity.
The actress who played Zoe, Leah Bracknell, sadly died of cancer following this development.
Daughter Jean Tate’s future in New Zealand has never been revealed – so there’s a chance it could be Gail hiding behind a pseudonym.
Gail was having a suspicious conversation with her boyfriend about the past and responded sharply when Ryan said, “You can’t just pretend it didn’t happen.”
The figure replied, “And what’s the point of dragging out old luggage?”
It wasn’t clear what the bartender was referring to in the exchange.
One fan shared his theories on social media, saying: “I have a funny feeling it’s Zoe Tate’s daughter. Maybe her real name isn’t Gail. It’s probably Jean Tate.”
Another agreed: “I think she’s Zoe Tate’s daughter… I could be wrong but she’s about the right age and the story between Charity and Zoe could be a reason for her to show up in the village.”
