Emmerdale star Chris Bisson has said that his character's infidelity is a result of emotional turmoil.
Bisson's alter-ego, Jai Sharma, has a one-night stand with Rachel Breckle following an argument with his new wife Charity.
Discussing the couple's trouble, Chris told Soaplife: "He's devastated because Charity won't have his baby.
"Not having children is a huge sacrifice for Jai, possibly the biggest he could make."
Bisson says that Charity shows her selfish side when she doesn't seem interested in Noah's new passport, which has been updated with Jai's surname following his adoption.
He said: "They're not on the best of terms when the passport arrives and Charity just tosses it aside.
"She doesn't even give Jai the satisfaction of seeing the name change. She's being completely selfish. She doesn't realise how much that actually hurts him."
However, the actor hinted that the couple may have a more stable life in future.
He said: "I think if he had known before that she didn't want a baby, he maybe would have thought harder about marrying her. But he does love her and they do have Noah together - they are a family."
