Emmerdale has launched its new season of storylines with a hot-tempered Yorkshire summer of infidelity, involving three significant love triangles.

First, Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) is set to marry Pete Barton (Anthony Quinlan) , but her heart may be ruling her head when she’s tempted by his brother Ross (Michael Parr), who’s currently getting involved in bare-knuckle boxing tournaments to pay off bad debts. Will Debbie give into her feelings for Ross, or do the ‘right’ thing and become Pete’s wife?

Then there’s Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley), hell-bent on protecting his secrets from wife Chrissie (Louise Marwood), while continuing his affair with Aaron Livesy (Danny Miller) and covering up his involvement in the death of Katie Sugden. But Chrissie’s no wallflower and when she realises the full extent of his deceit, she’ll make her errant husband pay. But exactly how much?

Businessman Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) is quite happy to destory lives to get what he wants, or if he feels wronged. So who’s in his firing line this time? Well, Mrs Sharma, Megan (Gaynor Faye), is in the dark that Jai has rekindled his affair with Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) – until he unwttingly dobs himself in. Megan’s now in the know and not a woman who will accept being wronged…

A long, hot summer beckons in Yorshire and three love triangles are about to boil over.
