Drama in the Dales: Make sure you don’t miss Emmerdale tonight for THIS reason


If you only do one thing this evening, make sure it is turning into Emmerdale on ITV at 7pm..

There's a big twist in tonight's Emmerdale that soap fans definitely can't afford to miss, as Marlon and Jessie Dingle's marriage hangs by a thread following Jessie's fling with her ex husband.

Emmerdale fans were left heartbroken for poor Marlon when Jessie finally gave into Al's advances and the pair slept together in a moment of weakness.

But sadly for Jessie, her momentary mistake has left her marriage with Marlon on the rocks when Mandy Dingle caught her with Al and didn't waste any time in breaking the news to an oblivious Marlon.

Friday night's episode saw Marlon struggling to come to terms with the fact Jessie has done the unthinkable and, as he sat down with Jessie and told her that he would never be able to trust her again, he ended their marriage.

But tonight's Emmerdale sees a twist in the tale when Jessie makes one final attempt to fix their relationship.

Having been offered the job in Dubai again after having originally turned it down, Jessie prepares to leave the village and make a fresh start abroad.

But in a shock twist, she asks Marlon to go with her - suggesting they take Marlon's daughter April with them.

Marlon is in turmoil over how to break the news to April that yet another mother figure in her life is leaving.

But could Jessie's new plan for their future mean he doesn't have to tell his daughter that it's just going to be the two of them at home again?

Emmerdale fans know that actress Sandra Marvin, who plays cheating Jessie, is set to leave the show after two years in the Dales, but could she be taking Marlon with her?

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
