Will and Malone have a vicious fight at Cain Dingle's garage where someone is left lying lifeless on the ground!

Emmerdale's DI Malone is a target in Friday's episode on ITV from 7pm (see our TV Guide for full listings).

As Malone (Mark Womack) goes about his business, he has no idea Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) is gunning for him – and soon Will (Dean Andrews) is baying for his blood, too.

Having fallen for secret lover Harriet (Katherine Dow Blyton), oblivious Malone is fixated on securing a future with her. But the vicar, who's engaged to Will, reels when the besotted dodgy DI suggests she gives up on the idea of marrying Will and runs away with him instead!
