Emmerdale spoilers: Jai tries to punch Rakesh – but ends up hitting David

Tempers are set to fray in the coming weeks, with David becoming an unintended casualty

The war between Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) and Rakesh Kotecha (Pasha Bocarie) looks set to intensify in the coming weeks as the pair come to blows. But it seems that David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) will end up getting caught in the crossfire.


In scenes to be shown on Wednesday 30 July, Rakesh overhears Jai slagging him off to David and makes the cutting remark that Jai shouldn’t push away his family like he did his son. However, when Jai snaps and throws a punch at Rakesh, it’s David who feels the brunt of it!

Hostilities have recently broken out in the Sharma house after Priya (Fiona Wade) announced her plan to Rakesh, a lawyer with whom Jai has a long-standing grudge. But Priya is determined to get her guy, as actress Fiona Wade recently explained: 


“Priya stands by her man! She doesn’t think her brother should rule her life. Priya thinks Rakesh is the perfect suitor for her and a good dad for Amba. He ticks all the boxes for her and they’ve got a chemistry and a spark She likes him a lot.”
