Sparks are to fly between Dan and Nicola when the pair share a kiss on next week’s Emmerdale – but surely that’s not part of her physio regime?!
The pair will get close after Nicola is left frustrated by Jimmy’s arms-length mollycoddling. And when Nicola is told that her arm might not recover, her heart breaks when Jimmy struggles to handle the news.
Scenes to be shown on Wednesday 3 August see an upset Nicola tell Dan that she fears Jimmy now looks at her differently. And as Dan comforts her, Nicola ends up leaning in for a kiss. But how will a shocked Dan react and will Nicola end up feeling humiliated?
Speaking about whether the two characters are now set to have an affair, actress Nicola Wheeler said: “I think they might fall in love but not consummate it. I think that might be the idea.
“But is it worse if your partner falls in love with somebody? Sex is sex – it’s a passionate thing but once you’ve done it…whereas love is a bigger deal.”
Certainly, by the end of next week, Nicola is promising Dan that their kiss was a one-off – but are the two of them just burying their mutual attraction?
