But next week in Emmerdale, he gets wind his long-lost daughter Naomi may be in trouble and makes a shock decision.
In 2021, Charles Anderson (portrayed by Kevin Mathurin) found out he had a daughter named Naomi but never had the chance to be a part of her life.
This was due to his former wife Esme suffering from postnatal depression and leaving him as a result.
Unable to take care of her daughter due to her condition, Esme put Naomi up for adoption.
Unlike Charles, however, she later had the chance to meet the young girl and form a bond with her in 2020.
