Events escalate as Kirin Kotecha and Charity Dingle go head to head and the police arrive on the scene!

It looks as if the law is about to catch up with Kirin Kotecha in tonight’s first episode of Emmerdale on at 7pm (See our TV Guide for full listings).

Kirin (Rish Shah) the son of Rakesh, has recently returned to the Dales after fleeing  following the hit and run accident that killed teaching assistant Tess Harris in 2016.

Since his return Kirin has been piling the pressure on Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) to get him a large sum of money in return for letting her go ahead with her plans to adopt his son Johnny.

As news of Kirin’s return starts circulating around Emmerdale, one person who’s not happy is Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt). Paddy is just on the verge of alerting the police about Kirin when he’s interrupted by his other half Chas (Lucy Pargeter).

When Charity herself discovers he’s about to involve the law she pleads with him not to and Paddy eventually decides to back down.

He even agrees to let Charity access the safe so that she can get the money to pay Kirin off and send him packing.

However things quickly turn very nasty indeed when Charity turns up to meet Kirin and still has less money than she agreed to give him.
