But as the excitement of being back wears off, Lisa knows it is time to reveal the real reason they’ve come home and breaks the news to everyone that she is dying.
Emmerdale fans will know that Lisa has been told she doesn’t have long left after being diagnosed with a terminal heart condition.

Belle is heartbroken to discover Lisa confided in Charity instead of her, but will she forgive her mum and manage to focus on making the most of the time she has left with Lisa?
