Emmerdale fans make a huge U-Turn over Nicky
After seeing Nicky hide his sexuality from Caleb and continue to be controlled by him, fans have gone from disliking Nicky to now feeling sorry for him.
One fan wrote: I feel so [bleep] sorry for Nicky [bleep ]. Why is Caleb so horrible to him [bleep]?”
Another commented: “Honestly, the more this storyline unravels, the more I’m noticing that Nicky is a victim. He is being emotionally manipulated by his ‘Dad’ and being forced to do/ be someone he isn’t, just so his ‘Dad’ benefits.”
