Kerry Wyatt (Laura Norton) has been on a downward spiral ever since her break-up with Dan, what with her one-night stands, drunken showdowns and sacking from the factory. But events look set to take a disturbing turn in an upcoming episode of Emmerdale when Kerry commits arson and puts the life of a villager in danger.

Kerry is, after all, no stranger to fire-starting, having accidentally sparked an inferno at Dale View back in 2013. And this winter, fans of the ITV soap will see her begin another blaze when she sets Cain Dingle's caravan alight.

Said an Emmerdale spokesperson: "Kerry finds herself in hot water this New Year when she sets Cain Dingle’s caravan alight, unaware a drowsy Zak could still be inside. Kerry has pushed her luck too far once again, but could she end up losing grandson Kyle over this – or will ex-flame Dan come to her rescue?"

So is Zak going to meet his maker as a result of Kerry's actions?
