Emmerdale newcomer: Carly’s ex-boyfriend Matt arrives – will he ruin her and Marlon’s romance?

Does Marlon now have a love rival to deal with?


Carly Hope (Gemma Atkinson) will be left reeling on next week’s Emmerdale when her ex-boyfriend Matt (Jack Hickey) arrives on the scene.


The pair will come face to face in the Woolpack, with Matt angry that Carly didn’t let him know about the death of their son Billy.

Carly, though, maintains that she didn’t inform him because he’d already abandoned them by this point.

The trouble is, though, that Carly’s current boyfriend Marlon has chosen this day of all days to propose, only to turn up at he Woolpack just as all these pent-up emotions are being released.

A riled Marlon then clocks Carly’s distress and bundles Matt out of the pub. But then Matt ends up hitting Marlon – a move that leaves Carly feeling wretched.

So will Marlon go ahead with his proposal? Are there still feelings between Carly and Matt? And which resident has her eye on this village newcomer?
