The return of Jack Sugden Jr. to EMMERDALE is imminent. Is the youngster going to return to the village?
In recent months, Emmerdale viewers have become increasingly concerned about Jack Sugden Jr. (played by Seth Ball). The youngster is currently residing in Scotland with his mother Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb), who moved there in 2019. Debbie has since returned to Emmerdale, but Jack has yet to return to the village. As a result, ITV soap fans have been wondering what’s up with Jack and what the future may hold for him.
Debbie and Jack moved to Scotland in 2019, as regular Emmerdale viewers will recall.
After inheriting a garage from Lisa Dingle (Jane Cox) after her death, the couple decided to relocate.
Debbie returned to the village in December 2020 after receiving a wedding invitation from Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) and Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt).
Debbie was soon embroiled in her own drama after it was revealed that she was Al Chapman’s (Michael Wildman) “mystery woman” with whom he had been cheating on Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade).
Despite Debbie’s return to the village, she left Jack in Scotland, leaving fans to wonder if he’ll ever return.
Fans of Emmerdale have been speculating about Jack and sharing their theories on Reddit.
u/SassyBeeBassy, a Reddit user, wondered why Jack was rarely mentioned on the soap.
“Does anyone else find it strange that Debbie’s son Jack is barely mentioned?” they wrote.
“I know he’s in Scotland or something, but no one ever seems to mention him, and he’s like ten now.”
“It appears he was purely a character for Sarah’s illness storyline,” they continued, “and they could have done a bit more with him.”
Several soap fans, however, predicted that Jack would return to the Dales in the future.
“He is the new Jack Sugden. He’ll be back eventually,” u/theliftedlora commented.
u/JRR92 joked: “He’s in the cupboard where all soap children go until they’re old enough to be of use to the plot.
“They’ll pull him back out in the next 2-4 years I imagine.”
Meanwhile, another viewer predicted that Jack would not return to the village for a long time.
“He’ll make a dramatic entrance as April’s secret boyfriend in 20 years!!” u/SoggyWotsits proposed a theory.
Fans of the ITV soap believe Jack will return to Emmerdale, especially since he is named after his grandfather, the late village legend Jack Sugden (Clive Hornby).
However, given that the character will turn ten later this year, it’s unlikely that he’ll be featured in many storylines for a while.
Despite the fact that several fans predicted that Jack would return in the coming years, one fan predicted that he would be gone forever.
“Debbie isn’t even here (since Charley Webb may or may not have quit and may never return), so why would Jack be?” u/DMike82 expressed his thoughts.
Will Jack make his way back to Emmerdale village? Fans will have to wait and see what happens.
