Rebecca White will find herself being bundled into the back of a police car on next week’s Emmerdale following an attack on Joe Tate.


As fans of the ITV soap know, Rebecca is currently suffering with post-traumatic amnesia in the wake of the car crash that killed her sister Chrissie and dad Lawrence.

With her memory problems still an issue, a disoriented Rebecca will be seen letting herself into an empty Home Farm thinking that she still lives there.


In a muddle, Rebecca is soon wondering why it looks so different and is left further alarmed when Joe walks in. A panicked Rebecca then lashes out and attacks Joe, only to then face arrest for burglary and attempted assault.

Will all become clear when a doctor is called to the police station? Or will Rebecca face punishment for a crime she committed while in a confused state?
