Emmerdale spoilers: Heartbreaking secrets, murder pressure and santa visits

Life changing secrets come to the fore and prepare to explode in next week’s Emmerdale – and it may be too late for Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter) to realise on what side her bread is buttered.

She decides emphatically that Paddy (Dominic Brunt) is the man for her; and her family set-up would be a massive loss.

But as she nestles into her future, fate conspires against her, with the secret potentially set to erupt at any moment.

Moira (Natalie J Robb) knows how she feels too; the secret of Kyle’s killing of Al hangs over the family.

Meanwhile, Chloe tells Belle that Al took someone out to dinner the night Faith died and the penny drops for Belle who realises Chas never actually ended her affair with Al.

Later, Belle confronts Chas about being at Westgrove Hall Hotel with Al the night Faith died. Cornered, Chas is unable to deny the affair any longer. When Belle suggests this is why Cain killed Al, Chas wonders whether to admit to believing this theory too.

Chas is manic with fear, terrified Belle will tell the family. Back in the pub, Chas is delighted to hear Paddy’s booked them a surprise getaway.

Meanwhile, Belle breaks down in front of Moira admitting what she knows. Moira is furious and begins to put two and two together over Cain’s imprisonment and Al’s death  

In true Kim Tate-style, the nanny interviews at Home Farm are a formal affair. Despite Billy’s reassurance, Dawn’s still uncomfortable with someone else looking after their kids.

The panel interviews a strict, old-fashioned nanny. To Kim’s surprise, Gabby and Dawn refuse to employ her and press onto the next unlikely candidate.

The panel, except Kim, are impressed with Samantha and intend to deliver the good news after they’ve interviewed one final candidate.

The competition for Home Farm’s Nanny gets hotter: when both Dawn and Gabby are both impressed with Nicky – a handsome male nanny. When Samantha declines the job, Gabby’s delighted to offer Nicky the job.

Nicky accepts and agrees to meet her children. Whilst Kim and Gabby are excited for this new chapter, Dawn still needs a little convincing about having a nanny. 

Chas and Charity are delighted to have Marlon back at the pub and have installed all the necessary equipment for his return. Naomi’s thrilled when Marlon offers her a job as his assistant starting from tomorrow.

The next day Kyle’s excited to visit Cain. When Matty continues to push for them getting him professional help, Moira and Amy worry he might be right. Unbeknownst to them, Kyle has overheard their entire conversation.

In the prison visitors room, riddled with guilt, Kyle breaks down when he sees Cain. When Kyle struggles to contain his emotions, Amy and Cain worry he will reveal their secret. Cain worries if it’s a good idea for him to have visited.
