Emmerdale fans slammed Juliette Holliday on Monday 9th August's episode after she admitted that she wanted to "cut all ties" with her six year old son Carl as her new boyfriend Alistair "hates children".
Juliette, who recently had been fighting for access to her son, dropped the bombshell to a stunned Jimmy and Nicola King as she revealed that at the end of the month she will be moving to America.
And in another devastating blow, she revealed her plans to abandon Carl as her new boyfriend Alistair, who has got the job abroad, "hates children".
Juliette said: "Yes [I'm leaving the country], at the end of the month, and when I do, I won't be seeing Carl again. I've decided as of now to cut all ties."
Nicola was quick to come up with a solution so they could go still visit Juliette in America with Carl but she told them that wouldn't be an option.
Juliette said: "I have a boyfriend, Alistair, he is relatively new… I should have mentioned it. It's complicated, Alistair has got the job, not me, it all happened very quickly. The thing is… Alistair is not terribly good with children.
"He won't [come round], he hates children. Come on, I'm giving you what you wanted."
She added: "I'm 45, Nicola. Alistair is my last chance! He's [Carl] better off without me."
Nicola and Jimmy were quick to call out Juliette, saying: "You can't just abandon him, it's too cruel" and they also called her "spineless" over her decision.
At the end of the episode, Nicola and Jimmy put on a united front after their split and realised that they had to put Carl first rather than dwell on their marital problems.
Viewers were left furious over Juliette's bombshell as they took to Twitter to share their anger over the scenes.
One person said: "Wow. How low can Juliette sink. Choosing a bloke who hates kids over your innocent Carl. #Emmerdale."
A different account put: "So Juliette you’re going with a man over you’re own child because you’re new man doesn’t like children? That makes it worse #emmerdale."
