Andy Sugden’s life will be on the line next week when thugs leave him battered and bruised.
A jealous Lawrence White will pay for Andy to be attacked after leaping to the wrong conclusion about him and Bernice.
Emmerdale fans know, of course, that Andy is actually seeing Chrissie in secret, But by the time the penny drops for Lawrence, he’ll have placed Andy in grave danger.
Describing the scene in which Andy’s injuries are revealed, actor Kelvin Fletcher says:
“It’s like a scene from The Revenant. It’s really weird. The director had me crawling out of this ditch with my hand coming out first. I don’t think I’ll win an Oscar for it, though!”
But thankfully, it doesn’t look as though Andy will be permanently damaged as a result of the attack.
Adds Fletcher: “Moira finds him unconscious. He’s got bruised ribs and a cut on the forehead, a black eye and a bloody nose.
“It looks quite bad, but everybody in soapland mends pretty quick, don’t they. Within two weeks, you can expect him to be as right as rain and good to go!”
