Emmerdale viewers outraged as Ryan Stocks dismisses dying adopted son
Gail admits giving up their son for adoption
It looks as though Emmerdale viewers were less than impressed with Ryan Stocks (played by James Moore) after learning his son was ill.
This week, fans of the ITV soap discovered the reason Gail Loman (Rachael Gill-Davis) had been acting suspiciously after a string of mysterious phone calls.
Meeting up with a woman called Sophie (Martha Cope), it transpired that she was the adoptive mum of a teenage son called Oscar, who Gail and Ryan had had when they were teenagers.
During their chat, Sophie revealed their son had a rare type of aplastic anaemia and desperately needed a bone marrow transplant.
On Friday night, Gail learnt that she sadly wasn’t a match, which meant she’d have to ask Ryan to get tested.

Breaking down in tears over the thought of revealing all to her boyfriend, she confessed all to Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock), who urged her to tell Ryan as he’d understand.
Taking his advice, she sat down with Ryan and was clearly nervous about breaking the news.
Digesting the news, Ryan was furious Gail had lied to him by not letting him know their son’s adoptive mum had been in contact.
He fumed: “We are not his parents.”
She added: “Yeah, we kind of are.”

However, Ryan called what had happened a “mistake” and stated it was the right thing to give him up.
Not wanting to see a photo of his son, Gail confessed he’s sick and needs them at this moment in time.
However, Ryan was still reeling over the news and told her to get out immediately.
It looked as though viewers were less than impressed by Ryan’s reaction, as he made it clear he had no intention of getting in contact with their dying son.
@itzzzo_ said: “What an a*****le Ryan is. Surely you’d help a child if you could regardless of the circumstances?”
@1stLadyHooligan added: “I’m really surprised by Ryan’s reaction about Oscar.”
@Helz2011 commented: “Odd reaction from Ryan, wasn’t expecting that.”
@KWMadhead94 said: “He is your son Ryan and he’s dying.”
@aaron_dingles tweeted: “Ryan’s a bit of a b******d isn’t he? Imagine not wanting to help a sick child when you have the chance to.”
Although @Jamal06122771 understood the reaction by adding: “Ryan’s past has come to haunt him, he buried it, but now it has resurface. And it probably was a hard deal for him to part from his Son. The feelings have come back, he can’t handle it. It makes sense for him to feel this way.”
