Emmerdale fans were shocked to see a familiar face back on their screens last night...
Fans already know that it’s a big week in Emmerdale, and last night’s episode kicked off with a flash forward to Jimmy King’s call to the emergency services.
It was revealed there were multiple casualties following a major incident, and doctors were seen treating the mysterious villagers that had been caught up in the drama.
But as the soap went back to the present day, Jimmy and Nicola were seen panicking about the fact their livelihood was going down the pan thanks to Juliette’s meddling.
Jimmy then asked Nicola if her dad was still in bed, suggesting Rodney was back from his trip to Australia.
The character hasn’t been seen on screen for some time, but he was soon back to his usual cheery self when Jimmy tracked him down in the cafe.
Fresh off the plane from Australia, jet lagged Rodney was pleased to see Jimmy, and fans were thrilled to see the character back on their screens…
Paul cooks up more lies
There was also drama for the Dingle family last night when Paul fabricated yet another web of lies after Aaron kidnapped Connor.
Shocked to find Connor bound and gagged in his front room, Paul had some quick thinking to do.
He soon lied that Connor had escaped after knocking him down, and the Dingles soaked up his lies as Vinny stood quietly in the background.
But the truth has suddenly dawned on Liv after a run in with Connor outside the village.
She confronted him about attacking Vinny, but he revealed that Paul lied about being kidnapped and that perhaps she should be looking a little closer to home to find the culprit who left Vinny in hospital.
How long will it take Liv to confront Paul and Vinny?
And will she land herself in grave danger by getting involved with violent Paul?
