Nicola King has been feeling annoyed about her sister Bernice’s lingering presence in her marriage recently, but things are set to become yet more awkward in upcoming episodes of Emmerdale, when Bernice ends up hiding in the wardrobe at Jimmy’s hotel!
Early on in the week, Bernice visits the King household and arrives just as the bacon Jimmy’s cooking goes up in flames. They put out the fire and Bernice then insists that he can’t go on being so sleep deprived, saying she’ll book him into a B&B so he can finally get a good night’s sleep.
The following day, Jimmy tells Nicola that he has to drive to Newquay through the night. Meanwhile, Bernice provides him with the paperwork for the spa break and encourages him to go and get some rest.
When he arrives at the hotel, though, the manager won’t allow him to check in on his own. Exhausted almost past the point of caring, he calls Bernice and she shows up and pretends to be his wife. Jimmy, for his part, is too tired to argue.
Back at home, though, Nicola sees an email from the hotel on Jimmy’s account and becomes suspicious. She goes to find him and confront him for lying, forcing Bernice to hide in the wardrobe!
Jimmy manages to win her over but then Nicola spots the wardrobe – will she find Bernice hiding inside?
Later in the week, Rodney urges Nicola to talk to her husband. She doesn’t want to but does agree to have a chat with Laurel. Laurel, however, locks her in the pirate ship to force her to speak to Jimmy.
Nicola is livid and threatens to call the police, while Jimmy begins to wonder if this was such a good idea.
With so much going wrong, can Jimmy and Nicola make it through this new turbulent phase of their relationship?
