Emmerdale spoilers! Laurel has words with Jai about his ex…

Bad blood needs to be forgotten – will Jai see past his feud with his ex Rachel, the late mother of his estranged son Archie, and attend her funeral?

Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) was stunned when Dan Spencer (Liam Fox) recently bought his estranged young son Archie to the village. But Archie's return in Emmerdale was under sad auspices as the little lad's mum Rachel Breckle (Gemma Oaten) has died.

With Jai now trying to bond with the little lad on top of the hell his family is going through following the factory fire, the businessman has his hands full.

As Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) urges him to see past the bad blood that poisoned his relationship with Rachel, will Jai listen and do the right thing in attending his son's mum's funeral?
