Emmerdale fans are predicting Robert Sugden might be about to return to the village after Luke Posner shared something shocking about his relationship with his brother.

Opening up to his mum Wendy, Luke (Max Parker) admitted Lee Posner (Kris Mochrie) beat him up after he learned he was in a relationship with a man, punching him in a horrific homophobic act.

Luke then admitted he retaliated, hitting Lee until he fell unconscious – though he eventually woke up again and threatened him for a final time.

Later that day, Robert, whose sister Victoria Sugden was raped by Lee, took out his revenge on the sick rapist and attacked him.

Lee died in hospital after the attack, and Robert, played by actor Ryan Hawley, was sent to prison, ruining his marriage with Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller).

Watching from home this evening, Emmerdale fans have predicted Luke is actually responsible for Lee's murder – meaning Robert could be released from prison.

One Twitter user wrote: "Luke killed Lee in prison as vengeance for him being a homophobic rapist! Calling it now! This means Robert could be in the clear for the murder! #Emmerdale."

"Did Luke kill Lee then? Wtf I'm so confused man surely Ryan isn't returning? #Emmerdale," added a second.

And a third penned: "Luke I'll forgive you for being a creepy stalker if you killed Lee and that gets Robert out of prison. #Emmerdale."
