Emmerdale got its highest audience since February, as nearly six million viewers tuned in to see the villagers find out about Aaron (Danny Miller) and Robert’s affair.

Oh, the look on the faces of those in The Woolpack pub, when Chrissie (Louise Marwood) turned on Aaron.

“Are you happy now?” she screamed at him.

That brought Robert (Ryan Hawley) running out from the back, begging her to keep quiet and talk to him in the back room.

“You’ve been having an affair with a man,” she told him. “You think I want to talk to you?”

And eyebrows shot up all over the pub – proof that no one’s had any plastic surgery in this village.

It was brilliant.

And Emmerdale boss Kate Oates promises it’s going to get even better.

“I see trouble ahead for Robert,” Kate says. “This story will keep going into autumn.”

And, remember: Robert still has that gun he shot Paddy (Dominic Brunt) with – and now he’s an angry, desperate man, with nothing left to lose.



Emmerdale continues on ITV, Monday, July 27, 7.00pm.
