'Emmerdale' character Nikhil Sharma is going to be ''distressed'' when his big secret is revealed in the rural soap, shocking all his loved ones

Nikhil Sharma is left "distressed" when his big secret is revealed in 'Emmerdale'.

The businessman - played by Rik Makarem - is distraught when his hidden secret comes out in the rural soap and is left terrified his older brother Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) will judge him for it.

Although it is unclear what Nikhil is worrying about, it is believed he has either had a secret sex change, is gay or a virgin.

Rik said: "Nikhil's deeply distressed and back at the house, Nikhil comes clean with his brother. It's a massive moment in Nikhil's story because - as much as Nikhil won't admit it - Jai's the hero, who's easy with words, easy with the ladies. Everything about Jai is what Nikhil wishes he could be like and Jai's the one person he wouldn't want to find out his secret. The fear of being judged by his brother is immense."

The hunky factory owner has to reveal all after his feelings for Maisie Wylde (Alice Coulthard) intensify and he is left desperately needing her help.

He explained to Digital Spy: "It's a real liking. What he's seen in her is a complex nature. She's been through quite a tough time and he's recognised that there's a softness inside which is quite appealing to him. She's not just this feisty beautiful girl, she's much more intricate. As much as Nikhil might be able to help Maisie, she might be able to help him."
