Amelia Spencer takes matters into her own hands in tonight's Emmerdale

Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell) has been feeling increasingly overwhelmed by her home situation in recent days and in tonight’s second Emmerdale instalment at 8pm (See our TV Guide for full listings) she takes desperate measures.

Amelia, who’s been seen bunking off school, confides in Sarah Sugden (Katie Hill) and reveals that her school is going to fine her paralysed father Dan (Liam Fox) because she’s missed so many lessons.
