Here’s what to expect this week in Emmerdale:
James and Emma sleep together
Chas and Paddy have been spending a lot of time together recently, trying to sort out what is going on with Aaron, but she doesn’t seem to have noticed how jealous it’s been making her beau James. It seems that Emma has though as she seizes the opportunity to stir things up for the pair and even tells Rhona about James’ suspicions. Before long James has Chas reeling with his accusations.
Afterwards, who else should he bump in to, but Emma, who delights in all the drama when he explains he’s rowed with Chas. She offers him a sympathetic ear and a drink back at her place and soon James is falling for her manipulative ways and the pair sleep together.
The next morning, James is feeling very awkward as he comes downstairs at Emma’s place and is torn when Emma reiterates his options; come clean with Chas and risk losing her, or live with the guilt. She further revels in the situation when she tells Chas she needs a word only for an alarmed James to walk in on their chat, but it seems she’s not done toying with him yet.
A guilty James confesses to Moira who encourages him to tell Chas before Emma beats him to it, which leads to a furious Chas insisting he leave and it seems she’s not the only one angry with him.
