Soap fans believe Frank Clayton isn't the only one to have lost his life in the devastating fire last night...
Emmerdale fans have been left devastated after last night's episodes saw Frank Clayton tragically killed in a fire at the Sharma and Sharma sweet factory.
But while Tracy Metcalfe, Vanessa Woodfield and Megan Macey are faced with the fact Frank is gone, eagle-eyed Emmerdale fans have taken to social media convinced that Frank isn't the only one to have met his maker last night.
Fans took to Twitter to express how upset they were following Frank's upsetting demise, especially when it looked like he was about to make it out of the factory fire, only to new killed by an explosion at the last minute as he emerged from the burning building.
But as the explosion hit Frank, it also took two firemen with it, and fans are convinced they are dead too...
Frank's untimely death came after he went into the factory looking for the engagement ring he was planning to use to propose to girlfriend Megan with.
But once in there he discovered his daughter Tracy was trapped in the storeroom and that a fire had broken out - which viewers know was caused by thieving mother and daughter duo Amy and Kerry Wyatt.
Thankfully Frank managed to save Tracy from certain death as he broke down the door of the store room with a table.
But just when it looked like the pair were going to make it out in one piece, Frank made the fatal decision to go back into the blaze after discovering the engagement ring had fallen out of his pocket.
Going back into the fire sealed poor Frank's fate, because by the time he eventually emerged, he was caught up in an explosion that threw him and the two fireman into the air.
Frank was then thrown into the side of a van, and landed on the floor where he lay without moving.
Despite paramedic's trying to save his life, it was soon clear that poor Frank had succumbed to his injuries.
Tonight's Emmerdale sees Frank's nearest and dearest struggling to come to terms with what has happened... but will Amy and Kerry admit that their tampering with the factory CCTV is what caused the fire that claimed at least one innocent life?
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
