Charity Slaps Noah in Emmerdale

Mum Charity Dingle does something she can't come back from

Emmerdale's Charity Dingle wrecks her relationship with her son in Wednesday's episode on ITV from 7pm (see our TV Guide for full listings).

Charity Dingle is no stranger to dodgy dealings and lies. But when it comes to her children, though she may not be the best mum but she doesn't want her kids to make the same mistakes.

So, when Charity (Emma Atkins) learns her son Noah has tried to con his way into the Army she takes immediate action.

With Noah having a medical condition which he reckons will ruin his chance of making it into the Forces, he's asked his cousin Samson for a 'clean' urine sample.

As reluctant Samson complies and Noah submits the sample, Charity picks up that something is up between the uneasy boys. When Samson confesses, Charity is aghast and immediately calls the assessment centre.

Noah is furious to learn she's interfered and lays into his mum giving Charity a really vicious tongue lashing.
