Emmerdale’s Debbie Dingle thinks she’s got her happy ending next week when she and lover Tom Waterhouse go public, only to be devastated when daughter Sarah is involved in an accident which leaves her unconscious. Will Sarah survive? And how is it Tom’s fault?
Tycoon Tom has been pretty full-on in his pursuit of Debbie, but the moody mum continues to play hard to get as she turns him down for a lunch date, reminding him that spending time with her kids is her number one priority.
Despite her constant rejection of his lavish gestures and insistence she can’t be bought, the wealthy Mr Waterhouse arranges for some swanky furniture to be delivered to Debbie’s new home as a surprise – the same home he secretly secured for her at an auction.
Scared this was one expensive gift too many, Tom fears he’s ruined the romance as Deb is apprehensive about them going public – but he’s thrilled as her icy exterior finally melts and she pulls him in for a kiss, declaring they’re officially an item and even agreeing to let him meet the family.
Handsome, charismatic Tom is a hit with the children and later in the week he takes them for a fun day out quad biking for some fun bonding – but disaster strikes when little Sarah crashes and is knocked unconscious.
Debbie’s amorous activity with her rich boyfriend is cut short as she runs to her daughter’s side, and fears the worst when she sees her injuries…
Is fragile Sarah going to be okay? And as Debbie blames Tom for putting her kid in danger, will their already-cursed romance survive this latest obstacle?
