Emmerdale fans confused as Ryan suddenly returns after mysterious disappearance

Emmerdale saw an old favourite return to the dales on Wednesday, as Ryan Stocks was sighted in the village for the first time in months.

Viewers were thrilled to beckon his return, though many were left wondering where Ryan, played by James Moore, had disappeared to for so long.

Ryan hasn't enjoyed a major storyline on Emmerdale since early 2020, when he was one of the main suspects in the murder of Graham Foster.

Fans of the soap were beginning to miss his presence from the village, until Wednesday evening saw him appear by his mum Charity's side.

Noah Dingle (Jack Downham) had been recruited by Charity (Emma Atkins) to lure Sarah Sugden (Katie Hill) out for coffee with himself and Ryan, in the hopes of mending their broken family ties.

Sarah is refusing to speak to Charity, instead pining for her mum Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) who returned in the New Year, only to move away again.

Charity was hoping to ambush Sarah's coffee date with Ryan and Noah, convincing her to let her back into her life.

As viewers watched Charity negotiate her plan with Noah and Ryan, they couldn't help but wonder where the beloved character had disappeared to.

One Twitter user wrote: "Love how Emmerdale just brings back random individuals, like the viewers won't notice, they haven't been seen for such a long time eg Ryan.."

"Welcome back to the show Ryan good to see you back," added a second, and a third chimed: "I've just asked where Ryan is and there he is how weird."

Unfortunately, Charity's plan to win Sarah's favour backfired badly, when the teenager read the booking receipt on the cafe table.

Realising Charity had set everything up, she rubbished both Charity and Noah before storming out of the HOP bar-cafe.
