Why has Ellis gone to Australia in Emmerdale?

Last week Ellis received a phone call from an old friend in Australia.

He told his brother Billy: “We follow each other but I haven’t actually spoken to him for years… until today.

“He’s got a resort now in the Gold Coast.

“And he’s offered me a job running their fitness. It’s the job of a lifetime, but there’s Belle and they’d need me to start next week.

“The thing is they need the job filled soon as and if I don’t take it now they’re going to give it to someone else.”

Has Ellis left Emmerdale for good?

After a week running back and forth to Hotten to sort out his visa, Ellis departed tonight.

He said goodbye to his brother and made sure he knew he was always welcome to come out for a holiday.

Ellis also had an emotional goodbye with Priya Sharma.

The pair had been romantically involved before she was badly scarred in the maze fire. She didn’t feel ready to be in a relationship with her, but he promised to wait until she was.

However, he then moved on with Belle Dingle, who he left broken-hearted when he didn’t even tell her he was leaving.

It was Priya with whom he had the emotional farewell as they both professed their love for each other and vowed to meet again in another place and time.

Ellis then left in his taxi for the airport.
