Rakesh Kotecha has been making pact after pact with she-devil Chrissie White, but he's no closer to solving his massive money problems. Then he thinks sleeping with Chrissie will pay off big time…
Wow! There are crooked lawyers and there is Rakesh, who is more bent than a corkscrew.
It looks like he has met his match in Chrissie, though.
She knows he torched The Mill for the insurance money. He knows it was Lachlan who shot Lawrence and that she framed Andy.
Chrissie has said she will buy his silence by purchasing The Mill and solving all his money worries.
But then she changes her mind.
And then Priya and Rishi notice £20,000 is missing from the factory accounts – the £20,000 Rakesh stole to give James and Moira back their deposit for the flat he burned down.
Now he is doubly desperate…
Chrissie has told Rakesh she won't buy The Mill, so desperate Rakesh tells her he will sleep with her for money… And Chrissie just has to have a picture of that!
Priya is all smiles, thinking Chrissie is about to buy The Mill and make Rakesh's money troubles go away
Chrissie bursts Priya's bubble of happiness by telling her that she's not buying The Mill after all
Shocked Priya accuses Chrissie of pulling out of the deal because Rakesh wouldn't sleep with her. Chrissie's furious – because Priya's not far off the mark
So spiteful, vindictive Chrissie accepts Rakesh's offer to sleep with her if she will give him the money immediately. Chrissie insists on a good performance and gets a picture
Too late, Rakesh realises he has been set up. Chrissie now has evidence that he betrayed Priya. What will she do with it? Watch Emmerdale on ITV from Monday, August 22
