Emmerdale’s Nell Fairfax has opened up to Jai Sharma about her past trauma in tonight’s episode of the ITV soap.
Scenes just broadcast saw Nell admit that she has a baby who was taken away from her thanks to her reliance upon drugs.
A teary Nell told Jai that her daughter Rosie was put up for adoption when the authorities found out that she’d been using heroin.
Nell then explained that the only reason she’d taken young Eliza from Megan’s car and gone in search of Jai was to avoid having social services intervene.
The plan, however, backfired, seeing as Megan is now facing scrutiny over her actions in Thursday’s episode.
Next week’s episodes of Emmerdale will see events take an unexpected turn when Jai confesses his fears as regards a possible custody battle for Nell, explaining that he lost a previous fight for son Archie.
As Nell comforts Jai and puts her hand on his, Frank spots the two of them and takes a picture on his phone. Will he use his new-found information to his advantage?
