#kissgate gets out of hand on Emmerdale when Bear spots Zak and Faith sneaking out of the pub cellar together and suspects they're having a secret liaison!

Ever since the unexpected kiss between Zak Dingle (played by Steve Halliwell) and Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter) on Emmerdale (opens in new tab), Zak has been feeling very guilty.

After all, it's not been long since Zak's wife Lisa passed away from an incurable illness just after the couple got married again.

So after arranging to secretly meet Faith in the cellar of the Woolpack, Zak makes it clear he wants to come clean about their kiss before the rest of the Dingle family find out and accuse him of being disloyal to his beloved Lisa.

However, before Zak gets the chance to come clean, an unfortunate incident leaves Zak and Faith drenched in beer!

But as the pair rush out the cellar in a right state, they are seen by Bear Wolf (Joshua Richards), who has his own feelings for Faith, and is immediately suspicious Zak and Faith were having a secret liaison in the cellar!

Are Zak and Faith about to be unfortunately outed to their family by jealous Bear? Or will Faith drop an unexpected SHOCKER that will stop Bear in his tracks?

Elsewhere in the village, angry Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) continues to head down a worrying path.

Ever since his gender reassignment surgery a few months ago, Matty seems to be on a mission to prove he's a real lad even if it means being rude and offending his nearest and dearest.
