Emmerdale: Ross Barton attacks Nikhil Sharma in Woolpack punch-up – first look pictures

More Sharma drama on the way as Nikhil finds himself in a fight

Nikhil Sharma (Rik Makarem) will be making a potentially deadly enemy in the coming weeks when he gets on the wrong side of village bad boy Ross Barton (Michael Parr).


Nikhil is back in Emmerdale to help salvage the Sharmas’ business reputation when Jai’s behaviour spirals out of control.

But returning to the village where he lost his beloved wife Gennie proves to emotional for Nikhil, especially when he comes face to face with Debbie (Charley Webb), whose late partner Cameron was responsible for her demise.

Debbie is determined to put things right between her and Nikhil, but soon finds that her apology backfires when Nikhil starts firing insults in her direction. 

Unfortunately, Ross chooses that exact moment to show up and – after overhearing the confrontation – punches Nikhil in the face! Will Debbie be grateful for or angered by Ross’s intervention?

And will Nikhil be facing any further trouble now that he’s angered the volatile Ross?

You can watch a 60-second rundown of the coming week’s episodes of Emmerdale below.
