Emmerdale: Chrissie ramps up the blackmail after her intimate liaison with Rakesh

Will Rakesh’s attempt to solve his money woes make everything worse?


A strapped-for-cash Rakesh will resort to desperate measures in next week’s Emmerdale when he agrees to sleep with Chrissie White as long as she promises to pay him that day.


Early in the week Chrissie begins to suspect that she can’t trust Rakesh and rips up the contract to buy the Mill. Rakesh retaliates by saying he will tell everyone that it was Lachlan who shot Lawrence, but Chrissie says he has no credibility and no one would believe him anyway.

Chrissie then tells a dumbfounded Priya that she hasn’t bought the Mill. Later on, Priya and her dad Rishi discover that £20,000 has disappeared from the business. Priya calls Rakesh to tell him and he panics about what they have unearthed. Instead of calling the bank, as he promised to do, he calls Chrissie.

Rakesh agrees to sleep with her in return for her paying him on the same day. She forces Rakesh to pretend he is attracted to her and surreptitiously snaps a picture of him kissing her neck.

Will Rakesh be able to dig himself out of the financial hole he has created without Priya discovering his secrets? And how will he react to being set up by Chrissie?
