Emmerdale: Emma Barton to die in self-medication drama?

Emma resorts to pills in an upcoming storyline - but will there be a tragic outcome?


Having brought about the death of James as well as Emmerdale’s recent multi-car pile up, Emma Barton is now a woman struggling to cope with her guilt. Having already nearly confessed at James’s funeral, Emma will soon be going to desperate lengths to ensure that she doesn’t blurt out the truth.


An upcoming storyline will see the villainous nurse begin to start self medicating in a bid to cope with her anxiety. However, scenes to be shown on Wednesday 23 November find Leyla discovering Emma fast asleep before spotting a bottle of pills by her side.


Realising why she’s dead to the world, Leyla wastes no time in telling the Barton boys what’s going on. But are they right to suspect that their mum has died? Find out when Emmerdale airs these scenes on Wednesday 23 November.
