Emmerdale spoilers: Will Charity say goodbye to daughter Debbie?

Emmerdale, Charity Dingle, Debbie Dingle

Charity is not dealing with the news of Debbie's departure from Emmerdale very well. But will she really let her daughter leave without saying goodbye?

Debbie Dingle (played by Charley Webb) is off to Scotland for a fresh start on Emmerdale (opens in new tab).

Debbie and her relative Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper) were left a garage business by Belle's mum Lisa in her will. So Debbie has seized the chance to head for the Highlands and take over the running of the garage.

However, while most of Debbie's family are supporting her move, her parents Cain (Jeff Hordley) and Charity (Emma Atkins) think she should stick around closer to home, even though Debbie is generously allowing Charity and her girlfriend Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) to move into her house while she's gone.

Charity's son Ryan Stocks (James Moore) is trying to convince Charity to support Debbie's decision... but she's not a happy camper!

With Debbie's bags packed and her mind already made up, will Charity leave her daughter to depart without saying a proper goodbye?

Meanwhile, SHOCK secrets were recently revealed about Lydia Hart (Karen Blick) when she confessed to her fella Sam Dingle (James Hooton) that she gave birth to a stillborn baby when she was a teenager, and buried her baby's body out in the woods.

But how will Sam's teenage son Samson (Sam Hall) react when he hears the truth about Lydia's past?

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

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?!
