Notorious swindler Charity Dingle has been leading a secret life of crime but is it about to get exposed?

Emmerdale's Charity Dingle is in big trouble in the second of Thursday's episodes, at 8pm, on ITV (see our TV Guide for full listings).

Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) used to be one of the village's most notorious and prolific swindlers but since she got together with village vet Vanessa (Michelle Hardwick) she's been towing the line. Well, mostly.

A few weeks back when Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley) faced a Dingle court over her shenanigans, a flashback revealed that Charity had secretly been involved in Mandy and Vinny's (Bradley Johnson) casino scams.

So far Charity's fiancee - and the rest of the Dingles - don't know about her antics but is that all about to change?

As Charity flips out when she finds granddaughter Sarah skiving again with Danny, the pub landlady is soon in trouble herself... Is Charity's secret criminal behaviour about to get exposed?
