There are devastating times ahead on Emmerdale when Faith Dingle (played by Sally Dexter) gets some life-changing cancer news.


In scenes that will air from Monday 4th July to Friday 8th July, Faith is told that her chemotherapy isn't working and she bravely makes the decision to stop any further treatment.

The news is set to devastate her children Chas (Lucy Pargeter) and Cain (Jeff Hordley) who must come to terms with what the future inevitably holds.

The siblings will have a night of soul-searching ahead of them as they clash over their reactions to their mum's news.

Cain, who has a complicated relationship with Faith, appears indifferent upon hearing her decision - this crushes Chas, who thinks he'll have regrets for the rest of his life if he doesn't make amends with their mum.

Will the siblings come together around Faith as she approaches the end of her life?

Speaking on the heartbreaking storyline, Pargeter said: "Chas is desperate for her brother to reconnect with their mother before it's too late and these scenes really explore the reasons behind their complicated relationship.

"Chas and Cain have a heart-to-heart and I loved having the opportunity to explore their past once again. The scenes were emotional to film and I'm really looking forward to seeing how they come together as part of a really moving episode."

Hordley commented: "Filming these scenes was a genuine and emotional experience. These episodes are beautifully written and great to act and I am pleased to have been given the opportunity for people to see another side of Cain."

On top of this, the emotional episodes will also see Faith deliver her news to close friends Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell) and Brenda Walker (Lesley Dunlop).
