Is James Barton about to die as he tries to escape the clutches of a deranged Emma? It’s the question all Emmerdale fans will be asking this Wednesday as James puts his desperate plan into action.


After retrieving a spare key from under the mattress and scrawling ‘I DO NOT’ across his wedding vows, James will be seen making slow, painful progress along the corridor to the stairs. 


James hears a nearby lorry and tries to attract the driver’s attention from the window, but it’s painted shut. Then, just as he’s hurrying to the door, he takes a dramatic fall…
