Emmerdale welcomed Beth Cordingly as Ruby Fox-Miligan to the Dales last week and Caleb’s estranged wife certainly made her mark on village life. And actress Beth has revealed she has a real-life connection to the soap.
Her partner, Ian Kelsey, is none other than the actor who played ex-Emmerdale heartthrob Dave Glover.
Beth has now opened up about their romance and how he reacted to her Emmerdale news.

Emmerdale star Beth Cordingly ‘very much in love’
Beth and Ian first met 20 years ago, but both married other people and lost touch. When they reconnected in 2021, they got together and have been loved-up ever since.
“I am very in love with Ian and very happy,” Beth told The Mirror. “I think it really does work him being an actor too. He has been so fantastic.”
When Beth was offered the part of Ruby in Emmerdale, she asked Ian for advice. And, he was all for it.
“Ian was really supportive and wanted me to do it, which is lovely,” she confessed.
