Emmerdale fans were in meltdown as Laurel Thomas’ father Doug Potts began experimenting with cannabis tonight.
Doug, who is played by Duncan Preston, turned to the drug to try and help with the pain of his bad back.
The Emmerdale cast member had already tried taking CBS oil, however this hadn’t worked.
Doug was seen telling Brenda: “It’s the pain, it never stops.”
Laurel then walked in, telling him: “Dad, you’re just going to have to work through it.”
She then asked him if he was sticking to his exercises.
He exclaimed: “They don’t work… nothing works.”
Brenda told him: “You can’t go on like this.”
He replied: “I don’t intend to, as you know I’m taking a proactive approach, experimenting with alternative therapies.”
Brenda asked: “So the CBG oil isn’t working then?”
Doug said there was maybe something else he could try.
He then was later shown with the cannabis, however as Brenda interrupted him, he had to hide it.
Fans took to Twitter to exclaim their shock.
One asked: “Has Doug been smoking the green?”
While another added: “Oh naughty Doug!”
A third exclaimed: “Doug nearly getting caught blazing,” followed by laughing emojis.
Emmerdale continues on ITV at 8pm.
