BackstoryEditDeclan Macey was born in 1968 in London the son of Irishman Dermot Macey and his wife. Declan was originally a barrow boy. He met Ella Hart and married her in 1991. They had a daughter Mia in 1992 but Declan never knew that Ella had an affair with friend Jai Sharma, a young businessman. Declan made lots of money in business.
In April 2010, Declan was conned out of money by Charity Dingle. Declan soon bought Home Farm in Emmerdale Village and asked Alan Turner for advice over running Home Farm. Declan got involved with Natasha Wylde and tried to bring down her corrupt son Nathan Wylde who tried to frame Ryan Lamb for the murder of their father Mark Wylde. In late 2010 Natasha was sent to prison and Declan bought Home Farm, becoming the new lord of the manor.
Declan was married twice during his 4 years in the village, first to Katie Sugden (Nee Addyman) and then Charity Dingle (later Tate). Declan often crossed swords with his nephew Robbie. In October 2012 Declan organised a Home Farm festival. Declan later got into financial trouble and his marriage to Kate dissolved. In December 2013, a depressed Declan burned down Home Farm.
In 2014, Declan kidnapped Charity, and then after killing Robbie, he went on the run. Home Farm was sold to Lawrence White.
In 2016 Megan said Declan is on the run.
