Debbie Dingle is thrown when she gets a text from Joe Tate who vanished after jilting her on their wedding day
Debbie Dingle has to dig deep as she sets about making contingency plans in case she gets sent to prison at trial.
It’s her dad Cain (Jeff Horley) and stepmum Moira (Natalie J Robb) who she approaches to ask if they can look after her kids in the event she goes down for a stretch in the slammer.
Later, back at home, Debbie’s (Charley Webb) in bits as she talks to her mum Charity. Offloading about Joe Tate vanishing on her on the very same day as he’d organised their surprise wedding, Debbie breaks down in tears unable to accept he would do such a terrible thing to her. She’s desperate for answers and clues about what has become of Joe – if only she knew, eh, Cain and Graham?
Well. As Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) is consoling her heartbroken daughter, they’re interrupted by a message on Debbie’s phone. Text! Guess who it’s from? Joe! Howzat?
Video footage from Bob Hope’s stripper night goes viral and sees the factory workers in hysterics over Rishi’s (Bhasker Patel) efforts.
Emmerdale continues next week on ITV.
