At Home Farm, Jamie's spy Noah tells him that his confused mum Kim (Claire King) is using a notebook to try to keep track of what's what.

But Jamie's (Alex Lincoln) not the only one who's suss about Gabby (Rosie Bentham). Kim herself have started to suspect that Gabby's been up to no good.

As she doles out specific instructions to Gabby, is Kim trying to trip her up?

Soon enough the situation blows up but Gabby tries to explain everything away by blaming Kim's current memory problems.

Kim makes a difficult call in Emmerdale

Kim books a test for dementia - is she about to find out she's being poisoned?

Gabby pours Kim a brandy and promises to keep Kim's 'confusion' a secret. Gabby's relieved to have got away with it until she notices Noah lurking… how much has he heard?

Unaware that her brandy is being poisoned by a mystery enemy, Kim bites the bullet and accepts it's time to face her fear and have a proper test for dementia.

Is Kim about to find out she's not confused - she's being poisoned!
