Zak Dingle (played by Steve Halliwell) and Bear Wolf (Joshua Richards) have been absent from Emmerdale for the majority of this year. Zak has been living in the village for decades while Bear is relatively new, but both are hugely popular with soap fans. So much so, those watching at home have been discussing a possible storyline between the two.
Zak returned at the beginning of this year, following a few months hiatus in Scotland where he visited Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb).
Bear on the other hand, had a four month absence from Emmerdale and shocked fans when he appeared on screen a few months ago.
Now, viewers think the two should feature in a couple scenes together.
Taking to a DS forum, one said: “I can see Zak and Bear Wolf maybe either being friends or rivals what with Zak being a ex-bareknuckle fighter and Bear being a wrestler.

As for Bear’s family, Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) is currently off screen, coming to terms with his anxiety.
His partner Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) has been featured behind the Woolpack bar on occasions.
However, the two have not been spotted together for a while.
There was also a suggestion Bear was going to have a romance with Wendy Posner (Susan Cookson), but in fact the two were just spending time together with their grandchildren.
