In one scene, Cain was talking to his mum Faith (Sally Dexter) and son Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) when the conversation quickly turned to his injury.

"What happened to your arm?" Nate asked him, to which Cain replied: "Okay, if you must know, I was helping me dad out.

"I thought he was too old to be climbing up ladders doing DIY, he forgot to tell me one of the rungs was loose.

"Anyway, I’m not here to talk about me.”

But it looks like actor Jeff has hurt his hand in real life too, as his wife Zoe Henry shared a Twitter picture recently.

Zoe, who plays Rhona Goskirk in the ITV soap, posted a picture of Jeff working on their allotment, with fans noticing he still has a bandaged arm.

One wrote: “Lovely photo but what has Jeff done to his hand? Get well soon Jeff, you need that hand for digging.”

A second asked: “Is that the same sore hand that he is also displaying in Emmerdale… hurt in Scotland?”
