Is Andy Sugden about to go to prison for a crime he didn’t commit? It certainly seems that way thanks to a revenge plot orchestrated by a jealous Chrissie.
Tense scenes to be shown next week on Emmerdale see Lachlan shoot Lawrence during a showdown at Home Farm – and then Chrissie making sure that Andy carries the can for the crime.
The reason for Chrissie going to such extreme lengths to set Andy up is because she becomes aware that he’s recently slept with his ex-lover Bernice. Plus, of course, her desire to protect her troubled son…
So how will an unaware Andy explain the shotgun in the boot of his car and how will he react to finding out that he’s now prime suspect in the attempted murder of Lawrence?
Says actor Kelvin Fletcher: “Andy certainly doesn’t deserve what Chrissie’s going to throw at him and he might not be able to see until it’s possibly too late.
“That’s not from him being a little bit dull and not seeing the obvious. It’s just that Chrissie’s by his side, being supportive, telling him that she loves him. So you can’t really blame him for not seeing it.”
