Emmerdale spoilers: Dawn asks Billy out on a date!

Emmerdale, Billy Fletcher, Dawn Taylor

After a heart-to-heart with village vicar Harriet, Dawn decides to pluck up the courage to ask Billy out on a date on Emmerdale. Will he say yes?

Dawn Taylor (played by Olivia Bromley) hasn't exactly been swept off her feet since she moved to Emmerdale (opens in new tab) last year.

Sure, the former prostitute got involved with super bad boy Ross Barton. But there were a whole load of drugs and a nasty pimp Connor involved too!

Remember when Dawn hooked-up with Ross, soon after he was left badly scarred by an acid attack on Emmerdale? (Picture: ITV)

So anyhow, now it looks like there might be something brewing between Dawn and hunky fella Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle). But what's a girl to do?

Luckily, Dawn's friend and village vicar Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) is on hand with some advice. And seeing as things seem to be blossoming between Harriet and Dawn's dad, Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) at the moment, Harriet is all about going for it in the name of love!

Things are going rather well between Harriet and Will on Emmerdale... even if he did previously return for revenge and try and crush her with a coffin! (Picture: ITV)

But when Dawn plucks up the courage to actually ask Billy out, will he agree to a date? Or will Dawn give up hope of finding herself a village romance?

Emmerdale continues weeknights from 7:00pm on ITV

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?

Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!
