While Paddy’s away, Rhona will play! Yes, in an upcoming episode of Emmerdale, wronged wife Rhona looks set to stray herself when she gets close to a grieving Pierce.
Viewers have already seen Pierce move in with Rhona as he tries to get answers about the death of his late wife Tess. And, let’s face it, the Rhona’s marriage to Paddy hasn’t exactly been looking all that strong since he took a job in Germany.
But things are about to get heated between Rhona and Pierce after she starts picking fault with a flat that Pierce has found. As Pierce jokes that Rhona’s pointing out objections just because she doesn’t want him to move out, the two of them have a charged moment where they lean in for a kiss.
So will this be the start of a new village romance? Or does Pierce have too much on his mind to contemplate a new relationship? Find out when Emmerdale broadcasts these scenes on Tuesday 17 May.
