Get a sneak peek of Friday's drama - will Emma be found out?


So, desperate Emma Barton (Gillian Kearney) has been caught on camera trying to fool poor Ashley (John Middleton) into forgetting about her part in the recent Emmerdale crash.


Yes, fans of the ITV soap have just seen Emma trying to bamboozle Ashley by rapidly switching their topics of conversation – hoping to dislodge his memory of her standing on the road bridge from where James Barton fell to his death.

But little did she realise that – prior to her arrival at his home – Ashley had been about to film more of his video diary. And that telltale record button we glimpsed at the climax of tonight’s double bill can mean only one thing: Emma’s scheming has now been recorded for posterity.

So what happens next? Well, Friday’s episode of Emmerdale will see James’s funeral take place and Emma almost confessing all as she delivers her eulogy. But then in storms Ashley with a determined look on his face – is he about to reveal all?

You can watch the scene from Friday’s episode below. Beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of next week’s episodes of Emmerdale.
