EMMERDALE has confirmed the six suspects in Graham Foster's upcoming murder.
The Sun Online exclusively revealed how brooding butler-cum-bodyguard-who is played by actor Andrew Scarborough in the ITV soap-will be brutally killed in the hard-hitting storyline as he tries to leave the village next month.
And now the soap has confirmed that Kim, Andrea and Jamie Tate will lead the suspects list alongside Jai Sharma, Charity and Marlon Dingle.
A source said: "Bosses know Graham is one of the show's most popular characters so it's not a decision that's been taken lightly.
"They wanted to give him the ultimate send-off and what better way than a grisly murder?
"It's going to kick off a massive new year for the soap with the Tates firmly at the forefront where they belong."
The decision to kill off the character came when actor Andrew told bosses he was quitting the soap after two years.
Viewers have watched over recent months as Graham has turned on his boss and former lover Kim.
He found happiness with vet Rhona Goskirk and discovered he could be Millie Tate's biological father after a one night stand with Andrea.
He even changed his will to leave everything to Millie in the event of his death.

It was also recently revealed how Graham was Kim's secret husband after the couple wed before she went to prison to give him control over her business empire.
He has demanded half of her vast fortune as payoff for leaving the village, and Kim has already shown her willingness to kill members of her own family when she ordered Graham to kill Joe Tate.
The insider added: "Bosses have spent months weaving in little details that will give viewers hints about who really killed Graham and why.
"It's going to be explosive and definitely one to watch."
