The ITV soap actor has apparently moved on from Emmerdale to pursue new roles. It comes at a time the character has taken on a notable role in the soap in recent months after starting an affair with village stalwart Chas Dingle (played by Lucy Pargeter). The villain has caused quite a stir in the time he’s been in Emmerdale, but it seems his trouble-making days in the village are over.

Viewers have been captivated by the storyline, which has seen the characters putting marriages and relationships in jeopardy.

A source explained: “Michael has really enjoyed his time at Emmerdale but it’s the right thing to move on.”

Speaking to The Sun, they continued: “He’s had some massive storylines but all good things must come to an end.”

The publication reported Al’s story will end next week after Chas’s brother Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) learns about the affair and a clash leads to a fatal altercation.

Al arrived on the soap in August 2019, and during his stint has established himself as a business-minded villain who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

For months, viewers have watched Al and Chas grow closer until they began a steamy affair behind Chas’s husband Paddy Kirk’s (Dominic Brunt) back.

The two have constantly been watching their backs trying to keep their secret from being exposed, but a few of the villagers already know.

When Chas’s son Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) found out, he was furious and Chas promised she would put a stop to it.

Although Al faced a run-in with Aaron after the revelation, it seems he has worse to come.

It’s speculated Al and Cain will have an intense showdown before Al’s exit – will he be killed by Chas’s furious brother?

Cain is set to threaten Al at gunpoint, but nothing has been officially confirmed by the soap as to whether Al will be killed off.

Express.co.uk has approached an ITV spokesperson about the storyline but they declined to comment.

Cain has held a vendetta against Al for years, so the affair could be the perfect excuse to get rid of him once and for all.

The character is also grieving his mother Faith, so he is probably less likely to be thinking clearly.

Could a devastated Cain really go through with murdering Al?

Cain actor Jeff told Express.co.uk and other publications earlier this year: “I think Al and Cain have been circling each other for quite a while, and they have probably been circling each other because of Covid.

“But I can’t get near him because of Covid, which was the sensible thing to do, but this is going to lead to something if he finds out.

“I think there could be fireworks but not the kind you get in November.”

Producer Jane Hudson, who was being interviewed alongside Jeff, teased: “It’s Emmerdale so there is usually a murderer lurking around the corner.”

Thankfully, fans of the soap won’t have to wait long to find out the true outcome.

Emmerdale continues on Thursday at 7.30pm on ITV.
