Emmerdale could be lining up another wedding as Nell Fairfax thinks boyfriend Jai Sharma is preparing to pop the question. But has she got the wrong end of the stick?
The grieving factory boss was still getting over losing girlfriend Holly Barton after a tragic drug overdose when he met lost soul Nell at a recovering addicts’ support group earlier this year, and the pair quickly became an item.
But family and friends were concerned at how quick Jai had fallen for her, and how similar she was to Holly – right down to the history with drugs. When Nell revealed she had a baby girl who had been taken into care at the height of her addiction, and who was recently revealed to have died, the pair’s bond deepened as Jai himself had mourned the loss of a daughter.
Next week, Nell wonders if Jai is about to propose when he begins acting furtively, but is she imagining things? And is a wedding a good idea for these troubled characters, as both continue to work through their issues? Fragile at the best of times, would an engagement be too much for Nell to cope with? Worse still, if Jai isn’t planning to get down on one knee, will Nell be disappointed and end up going off the rails anyway?
